Racing Point Force India F1 Team‘s Otmar Szafnauer has said that it will be a “much bigger challenge” to secure sixth in the Championship following a poor result last time out in Mexico.
“After a disappointing outcome in Mexico, there’s even more emphasis on the final two races. We still have our eye on sixth place in the Championship, but it’s a much bigger challenge now.”
He said that they are slightly behind their points target, and it will not be easy to make up the fifteen-point difference.
“We are fifteen points away from our target and overcoming this deficit won’t be easy.”
However, he said the team will try and make the best of the situation to try and pick up and some points.
“We will certainly give it our best shot, continue working hard, but we will need to deliver perfect weekends and perhaps benefit from some good fortune along the way.”
Sznafnauer suggested that the race at Interlagos in Brazil this weekend should present the team with some opportunities.
“Whatever happens, it’s going to be an interesting race this weekend in Brazil.”
