Korea preview quotes: Williams

Rubens Barrichello: The race last year was very enjoyable. We were racing on wet tyres so we'll have to wait and see what the forecast has in store for us for this year but I'm looking forward to enjoying what was a good Grand Prix last year.

Pastor Maldonado: Korea will be another new circuit for me so it will be a hard race. I need to understand a bit more about the circuit to get myself ready ahead of Friday practice. It will be interesting as it will be my first time in both the country and at the track.

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: After a difficult weekend in Suzuka, the whole team has reacted quickly and pushed hard not to have a repeat of the issues that gave us trouble during Friday's practice sessions.

For this 55 lap race Pirelli are providing the Soft and Supersoft tyres, as per Singapore. Last year we saw a large grip evolution throughout the sessions and one should expect the same this year. Currently the forecast is predicting a wet Friday and chances of rain throughout the weekend, so we need to be prepared to adapt our running programme to suit the conditions. This is a medium to high speed circuit with a smooth track surface.

We want to give both drivers maximum testing and set-up time on Friday in Korea in order to optimise the car's set-up. Our aim is of course to score points and to show a clear performance improvement from one race to the next.
