I’m quite positive about the next few races – Heidfeld



June.10 – The German Nick Heidfeld is positive mind of upcoming Canadian GP this weekend after he and the Renault team made development in considerate their single-lap difficulties.

The Lotus-Renault GP team Principal Eric Boullier was critical of the German after the Monaco GP, singling out his qualifying performances as a problem. He characterized Heidfeld’s overall performance this season as “good, but not good enough.”

“I was also frustrated after Monaco qualifying,” he said when asked by AUTOSPORT whether he agreed with Boullier’s comments. “But it’s definitely something I’m working on. I’m easy on the tyres, which can be good in the race. But I don’t get them working quickly enough. I don’t blame the tyres; it’s up to me to change it.

“I’m confident that I can do that together with the team. Everybody is fully behind me and we are working.

“I’m quite positive about the next few races because the team understood some issues that we had with the car. Hopefully we will be able to turn things around quickly and make a bigger improvement than other teams. Qualifying here will not be as important in Monaco and we have seen in other races that you can still have a good race performance. But the further forward you start, the better the race can be.”

“There are many areas,” he said. “It’s the set-up of the car and my driving. We are looking into what we might improve. It’s obvious that some cars are strong in qualifying, but fall back in the race irrespective of who is driving the car. It’s several different things.”
