Stevens ‘positive’ about maximising Manor package

Will Stevens felt it was important to recharge his batteries during the mid-season break, but is eager to return to the track at Spa-Francorchamps this weekend.

The Manor F1 Team driver remains in a positive frame of mind heading into the weekend in Belgium, and is looking to make the most of the current package at his disposal as the team look to focus on developing their 2016 machine.

“It was nice for me and the rest of the team to have a good long break, but I think we are all ready to get back into the racing now,” insisted Stevens.

“I had a lot of fun catching up with friends and family, and every now and then you do need a reboot, but at the same time it was important to maintain my physical training regime as this next phase of the season can be quite arduous, particularly the long hauls.

“I’m feeling really positive about the work that lies ahead, as it will be a combination of maximising our current package for this year and development for 2016.”

Stevens is happy that the first race after the summer shutdown is at Spa, feeling that it is one of his favourite venues, and one that is a challenge not only for the car but for the driver.

“It’s good to get that underway at Spa, one of my favourite racetracks and a really great challenge for car and driver,” finished Stevens.
