Hispania preview the Chinese GP

After successfully making it onto the grid in Malaysia, Hispania hope to qualify closer to their main rivals, maybe even ahead of them, in China.


Narain Karthikeyan: "I like the Shanghai International Circuit, it's a fast, challenging track. I raced there in Formula 1 back in 2005 and also in A1GP, so I know what we're up against. The conditions are very different to Malaysia, with lower temperatures, so we must try and adapt the F111 to the track and try and get the most out of the new package. The target for the team is to qualify in a good position and, personally, I'm looking to finish the race."

Tonio Liuzzi: "I've got very good memories from the Chinese Grand Prix. I drove one of my best races here back in 2007 when I finished 6th with Toro Rosso. It was a tough race but I really enjoyed it. The circuit isn't too technical but has a very nice shape which allows a lot of overtaking, also the weather is a little bit crazy so the races tend to be a lot of fun, I'm looking forward to racing there again. After the weekend in Malaysia we are lot more confident heading into this race. We are confident the team will work better, we've got a lot more data to work on and have a better idea of what the car needs. We also have some upgrades which will help us be quicker and get closer to our competitors. We are aiming to qualify closer to our main rivals, maybe even ahead of them. Once again we are targeting finishing the race and getting more information on the car in order to be better prepared for the European races."

Colin Kolles: "It's always nice to be in China. The weather conditions will be very different from Malaysia, temperatures will be much lower so we'll face the race in a different way. The track is quite impressive and we'll be looking to make the most of our new parts on the car. We will have small improvements regarding the rear wing and, overall, aerodynamic improvements. So there will be small improvements which are all part of the update package for Turkey."

Here's a man with a lot of reasons to be happy
