Following the final round of testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, the Brit said: “The focus is on the driver, the performance, being ready for the job at hand – that’s one thing I’m noticing is a little bit better here.”

“We still have sponsors, we still have sponsors’ appearances, we still have filming days, so there’s no huge, huge difference in how they go about their business, They want me to be as ready as I can be physically and mentally, and want to do everything possible to make sure that everything is take care of.”

“I’m still in the racing team, I’m still devoted to helping the team move forward. It’s just a new environment and I’m absolutely loving it. I’m so happy working with the people that I’m working with. They’re all so enthusiastic, want to improve and they’re really, really making a huge effort to communicate with me and get up to speed.

“They’ve obviously made some good steps forward compared to last year and I think they’re on the right track to improve in the right direction. So I couldn’t really be happier with them.”
