Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2014 Shell Belgain Grand Prix Race Sunday 24 August @ Spa-Francorchamps review

2014 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX – SUNDAY 24/08 /2014

Daniil Kvyat (STR9 - 0 4 )
Race Position: 10th

“This was a good but tough race, especially the end where I was defending my position against Hulkenberg who was on new options. That was quite thrilling, as I had to look after my tyres and at the same time fight to keep tenth place. The car handling during the race was good and I was quite pleased that the weather stayed dry. All in all, it was a positive weekend, where we were able to improve step by step and I’m happy to take away a point from this race. I can’t wait to get back into the car in two weeks’ time when we will be in Monza.”

Jean - Eric Vergne (STR9 - 0 1 )
Race Position: 12th

"The start wasn't great. There were some cars already passing me by on the straight and I couldn't do anything to defend myself. It's a bit frustrating to sit in the traffic, with my tyres which didn't last very long and suffering of a lack of performance. We need no w to have a look at all the data to see if there is anything we can do to be back in Monza in a better condition. We are not far from the points but we need to sort a few things out, have a clean weekend and score some points at our home Grand Prix."

Franz Tost ( Team Principal ) "First of all congratulations to Daniel Riccardo and Red Bull for anoth er win. Daniel's race was very exciting, so really well done! As for us, Daniil scored another point which is quite important for the team and for the Constr uctor Championship. Unfortunately, our performance during the race was not on a level to be able to fight and beat the teams which were in front of us . Both our drivers did a very good job, always pushing as much as possible . We leave this great circuit wi th a tenth position and we are look ing forward to our home Grand Prix in Monza."

Ricardo Penteado ( Renault Sport F1 track support leader ) “The race was clean for us in terms of energy and fuel management on Daniil’s car so it was a shame to come away with just one point. On JEV’s car the different car set up possibly offset the pace we could have had, making it difficult to overtake, but the potential is there. It gives us momentum going forward to the team’s home ra ce in Monza in two weeks.”

Sauber F1 Team - 2014 Shell Belgain Grand Prix Race Sunday 24 August @ Spa-Francorchamps review

In the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa-Francorchamps the Sauber F1 Team drivers applied different strategies, which in the end didn’t make a significant difference. Adrian Sutil, who stopped three times, finished in 14th , while Esteban Gutiérrez, who pitted twice, was 15th.

Weather: sunny/overcast and dry, 13-16°C air, 21-31°C track

Esteban Gutiérrez (car number 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Start on soft tyres, after 14 laps change to soft tyres and after 30 laps change to medium tyres

“It was a tough race. The race strategy was to attack straight from the beginning on. Unfortunately, it did not work out as expected, but at least I was able to gain some positions during the first laps. Throughout the race I struggled a lot with the medium tyres. This aspect made things complicated and put us in a difficult position. Our pace was too slow to finish the race in the points. We need to keep working to be in the top ten as soon as possible.”

Adrian Sutil (car number 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Start on medium tyres, after 11, 21 and 34 laps change to soft tyres

“It was an exciting race, but 14th was the maximum today. Unfortunately, I got stuck behind  Felipe (Massa). As I came in for the pit stop, he also went in at the same time. In some sectors on track I was faster than him, but on the straights he was just too fast. Felipe’s engine was simply too strong and I could not overtake him. We then decided to race with a three-stop-strategy, which in the end was the right choice. I felt more comfortable with the soft compound in comparison to the medium tyres. I am satisfied with the procedures over the weekend. The team did a good job without making any mistakes.”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:
“The whole crew delivered a race without any mistakes. However, it is disappointing to see that on a track where power and top speed are crucial, we were simply not fast enough. For the upcoming events it will be important for us to build on the improvements that we were able to make recently on the chassis side during the last few races.”

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering:
“This was a disappointing result after a reasonable race. We expected that we would struggle in dry conditions, and we finally achieved more or less what we could expect. We tried something with Adrian‘s strategy, starting on the medium tyre, which was clearly slower than the soft. This was working until he got stuck behind Felipe Massa. We then decided to switch to a three stop strategy, which didn’t work out because Adrian got stuck behind slower cars. In the end, our drivers finished behind each other.”

Shell Grosser Preis von Belgien - Rennen - Sonntag

  Beim Grossen Preis von Belgien in Spa-Francorchamps fuhren die beiden Sauber F1 Teampiloten mit unterschiedlichen Strategien, was jedoch letztlich kaum einen Unterschied machte. Adrian Sutil, der drei Mal stoppte, kam auf Rang 14, Esteban Gutiérrez lief nur zweimal die Boxen an und wurde 15.

Wetter: sonnig/bewölkt und trocken, 13-16°C Luft, 21-31°C Asphalt

Esteban Gutiérrez (Startnummer 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Gestartet auf weichen Reifen, nach 14 Runden auf weiche Reifen und nach 30 Runden auf Medium-Reifen gewechselt„Es war ein schwieriges Rennen. Wir entschieden uns für eine Strategie, mit der wir schon zu Beginn des Rennen angreifen wollten. Während den ersten Runden konnte ich zwar einige Positionen gutmachen, allerdings ging die Strategie nicht so wie erhofft auf. Ich hatte während des Rennens mit der mittleren Reifenmischung permanent zu kämpfen, was uns letztendlich in eine schwierige Position gebracht hat. Die Rundenzeiten waren zu langsam, um das Rennen in den Punkten zu beenden. Wir müssen uns weiterhin steigern, um sobald wie möglich in den Top 10 anzukommen.“

Adrian Sutil (Startnummer 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Gestartet auf Medium-Reifen, nach 11, 21 und 34 Runden auf weiche Reifen gewechselt
„Mehr als Platz 14 war heute nicht möglich, aber es war dennoch ein spannendes Rennen. Leider blieb ich hinter Felipe (Massa) hängen. Als ich an die Boxen fuhr, kam er zum gleichen Zeitpunkt rein. Ich war in gewissen Abschnitten schneller als er, aber auf den Geraden ist


Caterham F1 Team - 2014 Shell Belgain Grand Prix Race Sunday 24 August @ Spa-Francorchamps review

Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium – 24 August 2014

Marcus Ericsson, P17
André Lotterer, RET

André Lotterer, car #45: “I didn’t even get  the chance to sweat unfortunately. I was really looking forward to a good race and I had a good start, but then I went a bit wide at turn 17 and there was a sudden loss of power. The team and Renault will have to investigate this tonight and see what happened. It’s a shame, but I am pleased with my race weekend – I made no mistakes and did a reasonably good job. Of course it would’ve been fantastic to finish the race and do a whole Grand Prix, but it’s still been an amazing weekend. I can go home happy even though it didn’t really end the way I would’ve liked it to.

“I want to thank Caterham F1 Team for this amazing opportunity – it’s been fantastic to experience Formula 1, I got a lot of support and the team has been great. It’s frustrating to have only completed two laps of the race, but this is motorsport and these things happen.”

Marcus Ericsson, car #9: “I did a very decent start but then I was a bit unlucky in the first corner and I didn’t gain any positions. But I got a really good run after Eau Rouge and managed to overtake Chilton at turn 5. After that it was a long race fighting him – he put a lot of pressure on me throughout the whole race and it wasn't easy to keep him behind, even though I managed to do just that for pretty much the whole race. Unfortunately he overtook me with only two laps to go, which was of course very frustrating as it would’ve been nice to beat him.

“With the performance we’ve had this weekend I think we can be satisfied with our race. I’m happy with both the team's and my work and now we just need to work even harder to continue to develop the car and push forward. I feel we have really taken a step forward this weekend here in Belgium and we just need to build on that and keep pushing.”

Christijan Albers: “The team has done a solid job this weekend, we're moving forward. Marcus drove a strong race and was able to fight for positions during all 44 laps. It’s a real shame that André was only able to race for one full lap before retiring – his weekend up until then had been close to perfect and he has certainly provided us with very useful feedback that will help to continue developing the car.

“We have a very busy next two weeks ahead, as we carry on working to bring more updates to the next race in Italy. It’s been a positive start, but now we need to build on this and make sure we get stronger every race. I have total confidence in the team and I know that they are going to give their very best to keep improving the car. We are moving in the right direction.”

Cedrik Staudohar, Renault Sport F1 track support leader: “We had a very smooth race with Marcus and he was ahead of Chilton for a large part of the GP. We tried to give him as much power as possible at the end, but his tyre wear was too high and Max was able to get past. André’s race was very short – his car lost power on the second lap, possibly as a result of running hard over a kerb. We need to look into this tonight in more detail. Overall however it’s been a positive weekend and gives a good basis for the second part of the season going forward."

Scuderia Toro Rosso F1 Team - 2014 Shell Belgain Grand Prix FP3 & Qualifying Saturday 23 August @ Spa-Francorchamps review


Daniil Kvyat (STR9 - 04)
Third Practice Session Best lap: 1: 49.893 , pos. 7th , 11 laps 
Qualifying Best lap: (Q1) 2:10.445, (Q2) 2:09.377 , pos. 11th

“That was a tricky qualifying session and until the last run I wasn’t too happy with the car handling. But we tweaked a few things and in the end I was much more comfortable. I would say that my last run in Q2 was quite representative, even thou gh I th ink we could have been faster if it had been dry. Tomorrow will be a different situation, since the race is very long and anything can happen. We will definitely push hard and hopefully we can grab some points.”

Jean - Eric Vergne (STR9 - 01)
Third Practice Session Best lap 1: 50.535 , pos. 10th , 10 laps 
Qualifying Best lap: (Q1) 2:09.811 , (Q2) 2:09.805 , pos. 12th “ 

Q1 went well but then unfortunately we had an issue with the exhaust system, which compromised my Q2, being able to run only three laps and the timing was not the best one. It's a shame as we had the car to make it to Q3 today. Nevertheless, we have seen d uring the weekend that we have got the pace to do well, long runs looked pretty good. Considering that tomorrow the race should be in dry conditions, starting f rom P12 is not too bad, as everything is possible.”

James Key ( Technical Director ) "A tough session today. Obviously we are disappointed not to have made it to Q3 as, looking at our car performance along the weekend, that was definitely our target. Q1 was very much a game of getting the right tyres on at the right time. The team did a ve ry good job and the drivers responded really well. Q2 was tricky as it started to rain at the beginning of the session. Daniil ran two sets of tyres, unfortunately he didn't quite make it to Q3 at the end for just a tenth. We'll have a look to understand w hy. With J EV , unfortunately he had a c lap on his exhaust system which came loose and needed to be tightened up. That meant that he missed the initial run and he had a single opportunity at the end. I also think we probably could have sent him out a bit la ter than we did, because the track was definitely better towards the end of the session but at that time it was difficult to tell. All these factors really effected his session. All this said, I'm still convinced that we are in a position to fight for the points tomorrow."

Ricardo Penteado ( Renault Sport F1 track support leader ) “ As always in Spa when it rains, it’s very difficult to put everything together absolutely perfectly. We continued to refine the Power Unit maps during FP3 and everything worked well in qualifying, even if we constantly tweaked the settings as conditions evolved. We had the pace for the top 10 so it’s unfortunate to just miss out but we are well placed for the race nevertheless.”

Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium – 23 August 2014

Fastest laps / positions:
FP3: LOT 1:54.294, P21 / ERI 1:55.008, P22
Q1: LOT 2:13.469, P21 / ERI 2:14.438, P22

Total laps:
FP3: LOT 13 / ERI 11
Q1: LOT 9 / ERI 9

André Lotterer, car #45: “This is definitely a speedy way of learning how to drive an F1 car! Yesterday was dry while today was wet, so all this is now covered and I know exactly what to expect in both those conditions. I think it was a very tough qualifying session for me. I had to figure it all out while I was out there, so I’m very happy that I brought the car back without making many mistakes – it was so easy to lose it out there! In the end I managed to complete two decent laps and I’m really happy with my result.

“The most difficult part of this weekend is figuring it all out in such a short period of time: understanding where the grip is, where to brake, how to handle the throttle and the power... I’ve accumulated a lot of experience in a very short amount of time and I feel that I can do a good race tomorrow. I did some long runs yesterday and I found a good rhythm. Hopefully the conditions won’t be too tricky, because if not I will need to find out where the limit is while I’m racing – that’s my biggest concern. Nevertheless, I’m really looking forward to tomorrow’s race, I’m ready for it!”

Marcus Ericsson, car #9: “I think we could’ve been quite competitive in the rain but unfortunately we were in the wrong place on track all the time so I didn’t get a single clean lap. I’m disappointed because we could’ve done much better if we had put a lap together.

“It doesn’t really matter what weather conditions we race in tomorrow, I think we’re going to have a tough race anyway, but we need to make the most of the opportunities that come up during the race tomorrow. In the dry this morning we were out early on the option tyre, so that’s why we were a bit off the pace, but the car felt a lot better today in the dry, so if there’s a dry race tomorrow I think that there’s potential to do well.”

Cedrik Staudohar, Renault Sport F1 track support leader: “Given the track conditions everything went very smoothly on the engine side of things, with no issues. We had to manage the energy management lap by lap as the track improved, which kept us busy, but we extracted the best performance we could from the Power Unit. The drivers are quite closely matched and Andre did a good job considering it was his first time in the wet in this car. There’s everything to race for tomorrow, particularly if the conditions remain changeable.”

Sauber F1 Team - 2014 Shell Belgain Grand Prix FP3 & Qualifying Saturday 23 August @ Spa-Francorchamps review

Qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix in Spa-Francorchamps saw Adrian Sutil clinch 14th position, while Esteban Gutiérrez was stuck on P20. Once again over the course of this weekend he became a victim of technical issues. In Q1 there was a problem with the battery pack, which forced him to stop out on the track.

Weather: wet/dry and overcast/sunny, 10-13°C air, 17-22°C track

Esteban Gutiérrez (car number 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 20th in Q1 (2:13.414 min / wet tyres)3rd practice: 18th (1:51.898 min / soft tyres / 15 laps)

“It has been an unfortunate weekend so far. It is very disappointing considering all the technical issues. The team is pushing hard to put everything together. Also from my side, I am trying to extract the most out of the car. However, under the current circumstances we are very limited on track time. With the mixed conditions it makes it even more challenging, and it is very difficult to get the most out of what we have. It is an unacceptable situation, and we need to change something to sort out all the technical issues. We have to make sure it does not happen again in the next sessions.”

Adrian Sutil (car number 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Qualifying: 14th in Q2 (2:10.238 min / intermediate tyres)3rd practice: 15th (1:50.962 min / soft tyres / 12 laps)

“Again a wet qualifying in Spa, the same as last year. It was difficult to assess the situation on track, especially trying to work out how much water was still in the corners. Particularly during the rainy sessions, the car is still difficult to drive. Based on the weather forecast for tomorrow’s race, we chose a dry car set-up for qualifying which resulted in the balance of the car not being optimal. Under these circumstances we can be happy and it was important to finish qualifying without making mistakes. The team did a good job, and I got the best out of the car. I am satisfied with the outcome of qualifying.”

Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal:
“Adrian put in a solid performance and got what we could expect here. We will see tomorrow what this means for the race. Regarding Esteban, it is disappointing that his weekend has so far been dominated by problems with the powertrain. This makes it very difficult for him and his crew to find the optimal set-up for the car, because track time is so limited. No doubt he is in a difficult position for the race.”

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Head of Track Engineering:
“It was a challenging session with difficult weather conditions. However, on the procedural side of things everything went smoothly and the team did a good job. Unfortunately once again we lost a car due to a technical issue with the powertrain. Esteban had to stop out on the track due to a problem with the battery pack. This is frustrating because we are losing valuable time in preparation for the race. Adrian did solid job and is more or less where we can realistically expect to be. Now we have to make the best out of this for the race.”

Shell Grosser Preis von Belgien - Qualifikation - Samstag

Das Qualifikationstraining zum Grossen Preis von Belgien in Spa-Francorchamps brachte Adrian Sutil Rang 14, derweil sich Esteban Gutiérrez mit Rang 20 begnügen musste. Einmal mehr wurde er an diesem Wochenende Opfer der Technik. Bereits in Q1 blieb er wegen eines Problems mit den Batterien auf der Strecke stehen.

Wetter: feucht/trocken und bewölkt/sonnig, 10-13°C Luft, 17-22°C Asphalt

Esteban Gutiérrez (Startnummer 21):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 01/Ferrari)
Qualifikation: 20. in Q1 (2:13.414 min / Regenreifen)3. Training: 18. (1:51.898 min / weiche Reifen / 15 Runden)

„Bis jetzt war das ein sehr unglückliches Wochenende. Es ist einfach enttäuschend, wenn ich alle technischen Probleme betrachte, die wir hatten. Ich weiss, dass das Team sehr hart arbeitet, um alles in den Griff zu bekommen. Und auch ich versuche, alles aus dem Auto herauszuholen. Leider ist jedoch unsere Zeit auf der Strecke sehr limitiert. Bei diesen wechselhaften Wetterverhältnissen ist es wirklich schwierig, so das gesamte Potenzial abzurufen. Diese Situation ist nicht akzeptabel, und wir müssen dringend etwas ändern, um die technischen Probleme in den Griff zu bekommen.“

Adrian Sutil (Startnummer 99):
Sauber C33-Ferrari (Chassis 03/Ferrari)
Qualifikation: 14. in Q2 (2:10.238 min / Intermediate-Reifen)3. Training: 15. (1:50.962 min / weiche Reifen / 12 Runden)

„Wieder ein nasses Qualifying in Spa, so wie im letzten Jahr auch. Es war schwierig, die Situation auf der Strecke richtig einzuschätzen, vor allem wie viel Wasser noch in den Kurven stand. Insbesondere im Regen ist das Auto nach wie vor nicht einfach zu fahren. Aufgrund der Wettervorhersage für das morgige Rennen wählten wir für das
Qualifying eine Trockenabstimmung, wodurch die Balance des Autos nicht optimal war. Unter diesen Umständen waren wir trotz allem gut unterwegs, und es war wichtig, das Qualifying fehlerfrei zu beenden. Das Team hat gute Arbeit geleistet, und auch ich habe mein Bestes gegeben. Ich bin mit dem heutigen Tag durchaus zufrieden.“

Monisha Kaltenborn, Teamchefin:
„Adrian zeigte eine gute Leistung und setzte das um, was wir hier erwarten konnten. Wir werden morgen sehen, was damit im Rennen möglich ist. In Bezug auf Esteban ist es enttäuschend, dass sein bisheriges Wochenende von Problemen mit dem Antriebsstrang geprägt wurde. Das macht es für ihn und seine Crew sehr schwierig, eine optimale Abstimmung zu finden und sich auf das Rennen vorzubereiten, zumal die Anzahl Runden und die Zeit auf der Strecke sehr limitiert sind. Seine Ausgangslage fürs Rennen ist sehr schwierig.“

Giampaolo Dall’Ara, Leitender Ingenieur an der Rennstrecke:
„Angesichts des Regens war es ein schwieriges Qualifying. Das Team hat gute Arbeit geleistet und logistisch einen fehlerfreien Job gemacht. Unglücklicherweise haben wir ein Auto erneut wegen eines technischen Problems mit dem Antriebsstrang verloren. Esteban musste sein Auto bereits im Q1 mit einem Defekt an den Batterien abstellen. Das ist sehr frustrierend, weil wir so natürlich sehr viel wertvolle Zeit auf der Strecke verlieren, um das Rennen vorzubereiten. Adrian hat eine gute Leistung gezeigt und mehr oder weniger das aus dem Auto herausgeholt, was möglich war. Jetzt müssen wir im Hinblick aufs Rennen das Beste aus dieser Situation machen.“
