Pierre, what should we wish you for the new year?
Health and happiness! Obviously, as a sportsman and F1 driver, I hope to be competitive this season! Toro Rosso’s new relationship with Honda is a great opportunity to achieve something interesting. I am really motivated and focus!
2018… There is the return of the GP of France to the program !
Of course, this is one of my personal goals in 2018. Be successful, at home, on our land. I’m proud that Formula 1 is coming back to France, and that this major event comes when I’m a titular driver. It’s gives me pride and joy.
What do you want for all the audience future spectators of the Circuit Paul Ricard at Le Castellet?
I am one of those who appreciate this famous circuit. It evolves and, in June, we will all discover an improved version, turned to a richer show. I hope French fans will respond present. I wait for them firmly. A pilot, in his cockpit, despite the concentration, is sometimes attentive to what is happening around the track and in stands. I am sure that many times over the weekend I will watch how the GP is welcomed.
The circuit should allow to take pleasure. Drivers and spectators have a nice program in front of them. I think of several points of the circuit, already known and that I advise, like the turn of Sainte-Baume, important to prepare the straight line, but also to this novelty, the Chicane in the straight line of the Mistral which will offer new opportunities for overtaking and therefore show. Reaching over 340 km / h and braking at 100 meters remain action generators. I think taking a ticket here is worth the trip!
