There’s a great atmosphere with all the fans who are always so enthusiastic for the race and you feel all the excitement when you drive in each morning.
Unfortunately, there’s no Danish Grand Prix so I do look on this one as being almost a home Grand Prix for me.
I’ve been on the podium in every category I’ve raced in there and I’ve won there too.
It’s certainly been a good track for me till now so I hope that continues.
We have to keep our feet on the ground and recognise that another point is not a given.
What I can promise, however, is that we’ll be doing our utmost to get the very best from the car and our drivers, just as we do at every event.
The crowd is huge and so passionate even if you’re not British but for a British driver it takes on an extra level.
“It’s certainly the Formula One track that I know the best so I’m hoping that gives me an extra boost along with all the home fan support.
If we can find just a little bit more from the car then we can get into Q2 and from there you’re nearer to points potential in the race.” “We have a few small updates for the Grand Prix as it’s back-to-back with Austria which doesn’t leave much time.
However there is more coming for the test, where we actually have time to evaluate things properly.

At the last Grand Prix we seemed to have improved a few things things that were holding us back.
“We always head to a race wanting the best result possible.
