The belgian Stoffel Vandoorne starts this coming weekend on his second F1 season. Vandoorne goes with a good feeling and full of confidence in the direction of Melbourne, where the GP of Australia, the first race of the F1 season 2018 takes place.
“Melbourne really is a cool season opener, “says Vandoorne forward to the first race of the new F1 season. “The first race is the day before my birthday and I have good memories of my first grand prix as racepiloot for the team. Now I’m in my first F1 season behind me, I go with confidence and relax in the direction of Australia. I can’t wait to go again and win the race.”
Vandoorne worked over the past winter not only in the sweat to be physically on top to be ready for the new season. Also with the rest of the team tried Vandoorne the season as well as possible to prepare.
“I have spent the past winter greatly trained hard and I got together with the engineers a lot of time in the factory spent this year to prepare well. Even though the lines remained reasonably stable, there is a lot that you should learn about our new package because it is greatly different from that of last year. It will also be interesting to see how the riders and the fans react to the first grand prix with a Halo.”
For Vandoorne, it may not be fast enough Friday. To 2am Belgian time jumps the light at the end of the pitlane for the first time on green for the first training session. The F1-season 2018 is going to really start.
“I am very excited, it is the beginning of a new challenge for all of us. I look forward to Friday as much time as possible on the circuit to spend and our adjustment for the rest of the race weekend, as well as possible to prepare. We are also not too many get carried away because we still do not know where we are in relation to the other teams. Now the winter is over, I can’t wait for the F1 season 2018 to start,” concludes Vandoorne.
