Monza ‘should suit our car well’ – Felipe Nasr

1 Mins read

Felipe Nasr believes the Autodromo Nazionale Monza should suit his Sauber F1 Team due to its high-speed nature, and admits he is looking forward to driving a Formula 1 car there for the first time.

Like many drivers, Nasr rates the Parabolica as his favourite corner on the circuit, and hopes to find a set-up in Italy this weekend that will enable the Brazilian driver to fight for points, having failed to score a top-ten finish since the Monaco Grand Prix in May.

“Monza is an historic track,” said Nasr. “I know the circuit well from every series I have come through. It reminds me a lot of the time when I moved to Italy in 2009. Back then I lived just 40 minutes away from Monza.

“It is a unique circuit for me. The flow is really nice, with Parabolica being my favourite corner. I am looking forward to driving the circuit again, and it will be my first time there in a Formula One car.

“The high-speed track should suit our car well. We need to find an efficient balance for being fast on the straights and not losing too much time in the corners. A good braking stability, as well as traction for coming out of the chicanes, is important.”
