New Zealander Brendon Hartley has told about his expectations of the debut in Formula 1 in the coming phase, in Austin, where it will replace the racer Toro Rosso of Pierre went Out and will partner Daniil Kvyat.
“I was given a manual 50 pages! said Hartley in an interview with Newstalk ZB. I need to study all the procedures in the car, memorize the buttons on the steering wheel. At my disposal will be four hours of training before qualification. I think that should be enough to add.
New Zealand F1 – not Brendon Hartley is one…
From the point of view of lap time difference with the WEC really will be small – seven or eight seconds, which is not much, especially in race pace. I was piloting a very fast machine. Perhaps it is partly for this reason, Red Bull decided to give me a chance. In the WEC are also used complicated hybrid technology, so that in this respect there are similarities.
But in any case, I have an important step. The last time I’ve control formula car six or seven years ago. On the other hand, I try to look at things as simply as possible: it’s just a race car and to go fast, you need to consider the laws of physics. So the approach to work on the track will not change.”
