Summer break was good to get back to work – Kovalainen

Published

on

Aug.20 – The Finn F1 speedy Heikki Kovalainen come-back to F1 in a optimistic mood, he says the summer break was a good to get back to work. Heikki is expecting to capitalise on the always unsteady weather situation in a bid for points, with the squad yet to finish higher than 12th during their F1 career.

“After a really good break in Finland it’ll be good to get back to work,” Kovalainen told GPupdate. “I’m feeling better than ever and it’s always exciting heading to Spa. Eau Rouge is, of course, the corner everyone talks about and while it is still flat-out it’s actually not that hard for us now, but it’s still a big thrill. Any corner you take at 300km is pretty quick so you hang on the wheel pretty hard so that you don’t get any snap out of the corner, build up a good speed down then you feel all that compression as the car bottoms out through the corner and then you’re up the hill. It’s still very exciting!

“It’s been said so many times before but Spa is what a racetrack should be – hardcore corners, massive speed, overtaking opportunities and passionate fans, and, anything can happen with the weather. Actually, we’ve had rain following us all season so in Spa maybe we’ll have a hot and sunny weekend for once! I doubt it. It’s almost certain it will rain somewhere on the circuit at some point over the weekend and that could well be an opportunity for our team. We just have to keep pushing and make sure we’re in the hunt if there’s an opportunity to be grabbed, work hard all weekend and keep taking little steps forward.”
