Diseñado por Herman Tilke, y tras más de dos años de obras, Turquía organizó su primer Gran Premio de F1 en agosto de 2005, alojando carreras de Fórmula 1 hasta el año 2011, año en el que curiosamente Bernie Ecclestone dejó de ser uno de los propietarios, casualidades.

Es uno de los pocos con giro en sentido contrario a las agujas del reloj. Estambul, Ímola, Azerbayán, Shakir, y el nuevo circuito de Jeddah en Arabia Saudí, son este año 2021, los únicos protagonistas de esta inusual característica.

Este circuito tiene secciones que recuerdan a otras partes concretas de varios circuitos, como por ejemplo la zona desde la curva 1 a la curva 3, que tiene un cierto parecido con la famosa "Eau-Rouge" de Spa en Bélgica.

Tambien hay que destacar la que fué su innovadora curva 8, que con su amplitud y sus cuatro vértices, la convierte en una de las de más dificil trazada y puesta a punto del mundial. Esta curva tan larga y rápida, con su comienzo en ascenso y final en bajada, es excepcionalmente dura para los neumáticos, sobre todo para el delantero derecho, ya que es el que recibe la carga más alta y contínua en este rápido tramo.

El "porqué" el suministrador de neumáticos Pirelli, ha elegido estos neumáticos:



For the Turkish Grand Prix, which was added to the calendar to replace Singapore this year, the three tyres in the middle of the range have been nominated: C2 is the P Zero White hard, C3 is the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 is the P Zero Red soft. This is one step softer than the nomination made for the Turkish Grand Prix last year, which was held in November after a nine-year absence from the calendar.



The decision to go one step softer is based on the data collected last year, which demonstrated a track with average levels of abrasion and low grip, resulting in an extremely slippery surface that nonetheless showed rapid track evolution.



The track was entirely re-asphalted just prior to the Turkish Grand Prix last year. Since then, the asphalt may have matured slightly and it’s also been completely cleaned with a high-pressure water jet. So this year drivers should benefit from better grip as a consequence of the softer compounds, higher asphalt roughness, and the likelihood of higher temperatures compared to last year.
The best-known corner at Istanbul Park is Turn 8, which has been described as one of the great corners in Formula 1. It’s very long, at 640 metres (or 12% of the entire lap) and taken at high speed, with several apexes that place forces peaking at more than 5g on the cars and tyres.



As a result, Turkey is a tough track for tyres: with plenty of force going through the tyres. The cars consequently run high downforce to help push the tyres onto the ground.



Many other corners place considerable demands on the tyres as well: Turn 1 is approached with a significant descent before heading uphill, and the back straight also contains a swooping uphill kink nicknamed ‘Faux Rouge’ in homage to Spa. The entire track layout makes plenty of use of the area’s natural elevation.



This year’s weather remains a question mark, with the race being held more than a month earlier than it was in 2020. With rain dominating proceedings last year, the teams don’t have much relevant tyre data – especially as the softest C4 compound has never been taken to Istanbul before.



The winning strategy last year, at the grand prix in which Lewis Hamilton won a record-equalling seventh title as well as the race, was a one-stopper with eight laps on the Cinturato Blue full wet followed by 50 laps on the Cinturato Green intermediate. Hamilton was one of only four drivers to stop once, as the majority stopped twice.

Notas de los equipos antes del GP de Turquía:



Turkish GP: Preview - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team is heading to Intercity Istanbul Park, for another helping of Turkey, Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.


Formula 1 first visited Turkey in 2005, with the specially constructed Intercity Istanbul Park located in the Tuzla district on the fringes of the Istanbul metropolis. The culturally and historically diverse city is unique as it straddles multiple continents, with Europe and Asia separated by the commercially vital Bosporus Strait. Turkey's first stint on Formula 1's calendar ran through 2011, after which the popular venue was omitted, prior to returning in November 2020 as part of a schedule heavily affected by the pandemic.


The 2020 grand prix was notable for its lack of surface grip, owing to its recent resurfacing, the weekend-long cold and wet weather, and the absence of support categories on the bill. Turkey was installed as a back-up venue for 2021 and after June's proposed round was dropped due to travel restrictions, the event has returned in a revised October date, enabling Formula 1 to keep moving during the pandemic.


The 5.3km circuit is widely regarded as a classic of the 21st century new-build venues.

The opening sequence of turns has drawn comparisons with Interlagos' Senna S descent, but Intercity Istanbul Park's iconic segment is undoubtedly Turn 8. The complex features a quadruple apex left-hander that sweeps downhill at increasing speed and is a demanding test of driver, car and tires.


For Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) and Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) it will be their first taste of Intercity Istanbul Park as they continue their rookie year in Formula 1.


Can you give us your reflection please on what was a busy Russian Grand Prix for Nikita, both on and off track - with it being his home event, and Mick's first retirement of his rookie season.

Guenther Steiner: "Nikita having his home event and with Uralkali being our title sponsor, there was a lot going on. He did some filming before and after the event in Moscow, so he got the feeling of the reality of what it is to be a Formula 1 driver. On the race weekend itself, the racing was the same. Like every other grand prix, it's about always finding in a short period of time the concentration coming from all these activities around it, but he coped with it pretty well. Mick had his first retirement, but he kept his head-up and didn't get frustrated because up to now he had a pretty good run with no mechanical failures."


Teamwork was truly highlighted towards the end of the Russian Grand Prix with drivers and teams making crucial calls on tire strategy in the closing laps. Were you pleased to see such decisive calls being made between Nikita and the pit-wall at Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi)?

GS: "I was surprised myself how well he worked with his engineer Dom (Haines) when they made the decision. There wasn't a lot of going back and forth. We chose - I wouldn't say the safe strategy, but the best strategy we felt in that moment in time - to take tires because our team manager had an eye on the weather radar, and he was predicting more rain, and it came. All in all, that worked very well and there was no moment of panic, just sheer action."


Last year's Turkish Grand Prix was notable for a lot of unpredictability - due to an absence of several years from the F1 calendar, the weather and the track surface. Returning for a second consecutive season, is the expectation for a more stable race weekend this time around and does having a rookie pairing impact this?

GS: "On the track surface, what I hear is that they cleaned it up more so we should have more grip. On the weather, I can't change that one, if it rains, it rains and there's nothing we can do about it. The promoter and the owner of the track, they thought they could improve the conditions and they did, they tried to prepare the track as best as possible. About our rookie pairing, I think for them going to Istanbul, it's just one of the new circuits of this year for them, there's nothing different. They've been to circuits they've never run before and they've coped well so I'm pretty sure they're getting prepared as good as they can."


There's a lot of talk around next season's calendar with the upcoming FIA World Council meeting taking place following the Turkish Grand Prix. What are your hopes for the 2022 schedule and steps towards possibly more of a return to normality than in the past two pandemic-affected seasons?

GS: "My first wish is that the pandemic goes away, not only for Formula 1 but the world. That people are not dying or getting sick from Covid anymore and that we can all return to a normal life. The second is for Formula 1, and that we can have a stable calendar. If we have a stable calendar, even if there are some events back-to-back or triple-headers, if you know exactly what is coming you can plan a lot better than always having this uncertainty. FOM did a great job to get us through another pandemic year with a lot of events for the fans and hopefully the pandemic will go, and we can go back to normality but otherwise I'm sure they'll find solutions and we have to keep on going for another year, ducking and diving from the pandemic. I really look forward myself to the calendar and look forward to next year anyway."


We come to Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Turkish Grand Prix, and a circuit you haven't raced at before. How does that change preparation ahead of this weekend, especially following a string of races where you've known the track inside out?

Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "Turkey will be an interesting experience because I haven't raced there yet. I probably won't get the simulator time and it will be a steep learning curve experience but nevertheless, it's nice to visit there. This is the track that I came to for my first ever grand prix as a child - my dad took me there when I was seven or eight years old. Memories will come to me and I'm looking forward to it."


Although you haven't raced around Istanbul Park, it's a track that has garnered lots of admiration throughout the years, with many seeing similarities with Spa-Francorchamps and Interlagos. Along with Turn 8 - a very fast left-hander that has created lots of action - where else do you expect opportunities to climb the field?

NM: "From what I know about Turkey, the grip level hasn't been great, but Formula 1 cars have the tendency to improve that the more you use the track. I'm hoping it will be a fun place. Formula 1 tracks are so high level with Formula 1 and FIA at the moment, that it should be good to drive."


Turkey borders both Asia and Europe, and this race marks the last time this season we are set to race in Europe before a tour of the Americas and the Middle East. How would you summarize this leg of the season and is there a different feel to flyaway races compared to when many drivers choose to stay in motorhomes close to the circuit?

NM: "The first part of the season has been good. It's been a learning curve but an upwards one which is a good thing. The way this season has unfolded, I think has been positive because as a racing driver, if you race in Europe first like you did in Formula 2, there are fewer things you need to acclimatize to and learn. I feel ready to move on and explore new tracks, explore the world, and start to get to proper work with time zones, heat acclimatization etc. so I'm looking forward to it."


We come to Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Turkish Grand Prix, and a circuit you haven't raced at before. How does that change preparation ahead of this weekend, especially following a string of races where you've known the track inside out?

Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "It means that we have to prepare well with the team, obviously the team has raced there last year so we'll get experience from them and analyze the data from last year, I can analyze videos to see and therefore prepare myself for the race weekend."

MS: "We are not there yet so we don't know what our competitiveness is going to be but definitely we'll make sure we do our best and hopefully that will be enough to be close to the field and maybe fight them."

How would you summarize this leg of the season and is there a different feel to flyaway races compared to when many drivers choose to stay in motorhomes close to the circuit?

MS: "It was kind of cold! Most races like Spa have been cold, in Russia it's cold, but obviously it's been nice being in Europe but I'm very much looking forward to the overseas races though. I'll be staying in a motorhome in the States as we have a ranch quite close, I'll bring it down so that doesn't change much for me. Mexico and Brazil - a bit like Bahrain at the beginning of the year - I've been in the hotel so that doesn't change much in terms of my preparations."


Can you talk us through a driver's motorhome? What's included, what atmosphere do you create, routine - bedtime? Hard to exercise without a gym?

MS: "I've had the same motorhome since 2013. I've been in go-karts with it, so I've taken it everywhere! I'm very happy with it, I feel very comfy. We don't have a proper gym as such, as that would be huge, but we have a little room where we can do some training. For me, it's just nice to be able to sleep in my own bed, which in my motorhome it is."

Turkish GP: Preview - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "I'm looking forward to getting back to the track after a disappointing end to the last grand prix. Since then I've been spending a lot of time in the simulator, learning from the experience in Russia, and I'm ready to go again.


"The Turkish circuit is a real driver's track and I'm glad we're heading back there again after an exciting race last year. The fans out there are really passionate too, so it'll be great to see them all again. As always, we'll be working hard to keep up the fight in both Championships. We know how important every race between now and the end of the season is, so we'll be pushing hard to score as many points as possible."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Heading back to Turkey! It's a cool circuit which often offers up some great racing. We've been working hard since the last race to make sure we hit the ground running. Given we only went back there last year, we don't have a huge amount of data on how best to set the car up, so we've been doing work in the sim to learn a bit more and allow us to start strong on Friday.


"The fight for third in the Constructors' is really tight at the moment and we know that every point counts, so we're doing everything we can to outscore our competitors at every weekend. We've had a good start to the second half of the season, so we head to Turkey looking to retain and build on that momentum as we approach the final third of the season."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "We head to Turkey with the ambition of continuing our strong run in the final third of the season. Despite a disappointing finish in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) there was a lot to learn and plenty of positives for us to take forward to future grands prix and to build into our preparation for the next race.


"Turkey was a welcome addition to the calendar last year, and we're excited to head back this season. We really feel the support from the local fans, and the race last year was exciting with variable conditions, which could be the case again this year.


"We're coming to a crucial part of the season, and with the calendar now confirmed through to the end of the year, the challenge ahead of us is now clear. Simply put, we must ensure we are scoring as many points as possible every weekend, to maintain this fight for third in the Constructors' Championship. The team, both back at the factory and at track, along with our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP, have done a fantastic job so far to put us in this position, but the battle is still tight. We need to maintain our focus, our intensity and give it everything from now to the end of the year."

Turkish GP: Preview - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "We missed a great opportunity in Russia, as we did not make the best of the chances we had. We have worked since then to understand what we could have done better in order to be as well prepared as possible and back near the front again, starting this weekend in Turkey.


Since Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi), I spent a bit of time with my family in France, not doing too much, mainly relaxing as we will soon be heading into a series of races further away from home which will involve jet-lag, something we have not had to deal with for a long time. I also had quite a few marketing and sponsor appearances taking up time and apart from that it was the usual routine of training and more training, as well as talking to my engineers to be as well prepared as possible.


Last year was my first ever time driving at Istanbul Park. It's a layout I really liked. It's quite unique with interesting corners, a very technical track, complicated when it comes to the driving and I very much enjoyed it last year. It's physically demanding, with corners like the triple left hander at Turn 8 which is never ending. In Qualifying you take it flat and it is really very quick. I reckon you are close to 270 to 280 km/h for quite a while and you're approaching 5G through it. Last year there was very little grip from the track surface, which made it extremely difficult to set up the car in the way I wanted, but in the dry we found a good set-up, although it was more complicated in the wet. It should be better this weekend, I believe they have treated the tarmac to try and improve the situation. We'll have to see what it's like. I'm looking forward to it, because it was a really cool track to drive with several different and interesting lines to take through the corners, so I hope we can be competitive and close the gap to Alpine, who are currently in front of us."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "Russia was a disappointing race for me. Up until Qualifying, everything had gone well and I had made good progress as usual. I felt that, compared to the Spa weekend for example, I had made a step forward in terms of driving on the Intermediate tyres in Qualifying, so it was frustrating to miss the cut into Q3 on Saturday afternoon by just a couple of tenths. In the race, I lost too many places on the first lap, when I had no grip at all and after that I was stuck in dirty air for most of the time.


Since then, I have spent time in the factory, reviewing the last race, preparing for Turkey and training as usual. I now have a home simulator that I can use, so I've been doing a lot of laps! Of course, it's not quite the same as being in the full-scale sim at Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull), which is not like the real thing, but it is the most realistic one I have ever used. The main benefit of the sim is learning about the track and sharpening up my driving. I can also review something that happened in the previous race or I can practice some particular piece of driving. Having the simulator at home now is useful and I can also discuss what I am doing on it with my engineer and simulate a race weekend from FP1 to Qualifying, based on plans made by the engineer for me to use, so we can work on it together.


There was no F2 race in Turkey last year, so this will be my first time driving the Istanbul Park circuit. I have watched last year's F1 race and the conditions were very slippery. Rain aside, it was also because of a new tarmac surface, so it could be better this weekend. I hope so. I will follow my usual programme for a new track, building up speed gradually. The last five races I was pretty consistent, but the performance and pace was not so good, so this weekend I think I will try and dial it up a little bit more to be more competitive. Assuming it is dry, this looks like being a physically demanding track with corners like Turn 8. So, it will be tough, but I am looking forward to it."

Turkish GP: Preview - Aston Martin Sebastian: "One of the most rewarding challenges at Istanbul Park is trying to take Turn Eight flat. It's a 260km/h corner, with plenty of bumps, and a blind entry - so it's always fun. I really enjoyed my race in Turkey last year, and I'll be pushing to fight strongly in the midfield once again this weekend."


Lance: "My first experience of Turkey last year gave me one of the best moments of my career when I took pole position before leading laps on Sunday. Those experiences showcased how challenging the track can be. Grip can be difficult to find, but that makes for a constant challenge. I'm looking forward to getting back out there and aiming for points."


Cognizant's Keys to the Race
The battle to the first braking point in Turkey stands in stark contrast to Russia. After a 950m run to Turn Two in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi), there's a Spa-like 220m blast into Turkey's pincer-like Turn One, so there will be fewer slipstreaming efforts and more focus on gaining places under braking.


Istanbul will also provide a return to the 80km/h pitlane speed limit, so it's a switch back to a more conventional 20-second time-loss per pitstop. Multiple-stop strategies in conventional race conditions are therefore more viable than last time out. With the C2, C3 and C4 Pirelli tyres on hand, it's a step softer than last year and could help strategy variance.


Last year's Turkish Grand Prix weekend took place in largely wet conditions, meaning Formula One teams still have limited dry-weather data. Expect particularly busy practice sessions on Friday and Saturday, and unknowns - such as the feasibility of overtaking - to become clearer as the weekend progresses.


https://www.pitpass.com/70900/Turkish-GP-Preview-Aston-Martin


Turkish GP: Preview - Alpine The team extended its points scoring run to fourteen Grands Prix in a row, after an action-packed race in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) that saw Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) take sixth position at the chequered flag. Executive Director Marcin Budkowski discusses the dramatic end to the Russian Grand Prix and the team's approach for this weekend's Turkish Grand Prix.


What are your thoughts following the race in Russia?

Marcin Budkowski: We came very close to securing a podium in that race had it not been for the late downpour. Fernando drove a fantastic race and found himself hunting down the cars ahead in all types of weather and track conditions. It was almost impossible to predict what the track was going to be like towards the end and it became a bit of a lottery. Esteban found himself further down during the race and was unable to make up the sort of ground he was aiming for. Despite all of the challenges during the race, we came away from Russia with some good points to add to our tally in the Constructors' Championship.


The team is on a run of fourteen points scoring races in a row. How pleased are you with this level of consistency?

MB: While we are not exactly where we want to be in terms of competitiveness, the fact that we have been able to score points in fourteen races in a row is a great indicator of how, as a team, we are managing to get the best of our package in all circumstances and of the progress we made this year in terms of reliability. We now need to further consolidate our position in the Championship and extend our lead over Alpha Tauri and Aston Martin, and this can only be achieved through consistent points finishes and being ready to grasp any opportunity, especially when big points are on the table - we have seen that anything can happen this year!


The team heads to Turkey next. What are your expectations heading to Istanbul Park?

MB: Istanbul Park is a great Formula 1 circuit and we're happy to be coming back for a second consecutive year. It usually plays host to entertaining races and the drivers love racing there. Turn 8 is perhaps the most talked about part of the track and it's always incredible to watch the modern-day Formula 1 car taking this corner. We qualified with both cars inside the top seven last year in quite changeable conditions. However, our race didn't go as planned and we were unfortunate with a few incidents at the start. The tarmac was also resurfaced last year, creating quite a headache for the teams, it has been worked on extensively for this year so it will be interesting to see how it changes the track characteristics.


What have you made of the level of excitement in the sport this year?

MB: It's been a very exciting year for Formula 1 with multiple race winners, leaders and drivers stepping onto the podium. We obviously saw Esteban take his first, and Alpine's first win in Hungary, and have witnessed some magical performances by Fernando. Just take the last race in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) as a prime example of this. It's an exciting time for Formula 1 and hopefully this level of competitiveness and unpredictability can carry over into 2022 to coincide with the new regulations.


The Russian Grand Prix ended Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon)'s five-race points-scoring run. The Frenchman showed strong pace in Turkey last year and he is determined to bounce back in Istanbul with a strong haul of points.


What do you like about Istanbul Park and how do you reflect on last season's race?

Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): I like Istanbul Park as it's a really cool circuit. It was my first time racing there last year, as it was for a lot of drivers on the grid, and it definitely lived up to expectations. When it was announced that we'd be racing in Turkey again I was pretty happy as I feel like I have some sort of unfinished business there. It was an interesting weekend last year for many reasons. The track had been resurfaced and at first it was challenging to find the grip on track. Then as the track began to rubber in, it rained on Saturday for Qualifying and it was probably the most challenging conditions I've ever driven in. We made a strong start off the line in the race and certainly there was potential for a good result, but a number of incidents halted any progress, which I'm determined to put right this year.


Are you expecting conditions to be better this time around?

EO: It's an excellent circuit for Formula 1 and hopefully the conditions are better this year and we have more grip as I feel driving a Formula 1 car at full commitment there would be pretty cool. The tyres are a step softer than last season and the weather looks better so hopefully we can put it all together and enjoy a solid weekend. There have been some awesome races in Istanbul in the past like in 2006 between Fernando and Michael, which I remember very well. There are some mega corners there especially Turn 8 and, with more grip, will be a lot of fun.


How do you plan to return to the points after Russia?

EO: I was disappointed not to score points in Russia as we had been on a good run of picking up top ten finishes. We won't hide away from the fact we missed an opportunity at the end of the race with the mixed conditions. Sometimes it falls like that. However, we have spent the week reviewing some things as, in the dry, we were not too competitive, and we missed out a little bit. We've done our homework; everyone is working hard and I can't wait to go to Istanbul. The target is a return to the points and keep up the fight for fifth in the Championship.


Fresh off the back of his sixth-place finish in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi), Fernando returns to the Istanbul Park for the first time in ten years. After narrowly missing out on the podium in Russia, Fernando is eager to continue his rich vein of form in Turkey.


In the last few laps in Russia a 98th career podium looked very possible for you. How do you reflect on that crazy end to the race in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi)?

Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): We were so close to achieving a podium in Russia and I felt it was earnt on merit. I think had it not rained heavier in those final few laps, then it could have been possible. It was very difficult for anyone to predict and we weren't the only ones to lose their positions in the final exchanges. In the end, we came away from the race with some solid points and sixth place, so we can't be too disheartened. We can be quite pleased with how competitive we were in wet and dry conditions and need to take this momentum into Turkey.


You last raced in Turkey ten years ago, are you looking forward to racing at the Istanbul Park again?

FA: Yes, I have some nice memories of the Turkish Grand Prix. It's a circuit with a good mix of high-speed corners and overtaking opportunities. Turn 8 is a unique challenge and I look forward to tackling this corner in a modern-day Formula 1 car. I had a fun battle with Michael [Schumacher] there in 2006. He was right behind my gearbox exiting the final corner on the last lap. That was just one of a number of on track battles we had that season. It's a circuit that I enjoy racing at, and I look forward to returning there once again.


You've pulled off some impressive overtaking manoeuvres at several races this year. What's been your favourite moment so far this season?

FA: I think Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) was possibly one of my best races this year. The car was competitive during the race and the battles with the Ferraris, McLarens and Red Bulls were very exciting towards the end. In just a few laps we were climbing a number of places. Sprint Qualifying in Silverstone was also fun and so was Hungary for obvious reasons. We've had some good races this year and importantly we've been consistent. We need to keep up this consistency and score more points for the team to finish the season on a high.

Turkish GP: Preview - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN heads to Turkey for round 16 of the 2021 championship. This weekend's race will see the team return to the scene of one of the most spectacular events of last season, when a combination of rain, smooth-as-mirrors tarmac and conservative tyre allocation produced one of the most exciting races of the year.


It was also an event that marked a special milestone for the team: on its 500th race weekend, Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN went on to record the first Q3 appearance of the year, with Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) in 8th and Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) in 10th place. On Sunday, things wouldn't work out for the team - a technical issue stopping Antonio, while Kimi finished outside the points - but that was then.


We approach this year's race on the back of our strongest result, with Kimi bringing four valuable points home with P8 in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi). In the deluge that opened up with a few laps to go, driver and team kept their cool to leapfrog their opponents and score the first top-ten finish since Baku, a long-overdue result that had often eluded us for the smallest margins.


Historical recourses are not a reliable predictor, nor is any weekend in Formula One a direct result of the preceding one: finishing in the points in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi), however, is a big morale and confidence boost for everyone in Hinwil and trackside. As Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN head to Istanbul, we're determined to keep this feeling going.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "Scoring points in Russia was a big confidence boost, finally bringing home a reward for all the hard work of the team. We were able to make the most of the circumstances in the closing laps of the race: the conditions were difficult, but we achieved a good result. Now we have to keep up this level of performance, ready to make the most of the chances we may get. Last year we did really well in qualifying in Istanbul, that will be a basis on which to build as we return to Turkey aiming to have another positive race."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It's always nice to finish in the top ten, especially when so many times we've gone so close to this objective. The result happened in very specific conditions, so we cannot read too much into it performance-wise, but at the same time we had to make some calls right and we did. We kept our cool in difficult moments and we were able to make big progress before the flag. Turkey will be another interesting race: last year it turned out to be an eventful day, and we know we cannot rule out the same this time around. We will need to be sharp and see how things shape up as the weekend progresses."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I'm looking forward to coming back to racing in Turkey. The last race weekend was not an easy one and I feel we could have achieved more in the circumstances, but now it's in the past and I'm keen to move on. I remember our experience in Istanbul last year, it was quite a unique race event and, although we can't expect a repeat of the low-grip conditions we had in 2020, we know we need to be ready for anything that may happen. The team's strong result from Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) has been a boost for all of us and we want to build on that this weekend."


https://www.pitpass.com/70902/Turkish-GP-Preview-Alfa-Romeo


Turkish GP: Preview - Mercedes Toto Wolff: There's been a brilliant buzz in the team over the last week or so. Being back on the top step of the podium was an incredible feeling for all of us, and particularly after such a dramatic race weekend.


It was obviously made even more special by being Lewis' 100th race win in Formula One. In the moment, milestones like this are exceptional, but I think it will take time for us to all realise just how remarkable this period of time is, and how privileged we all are to be part of this journey with him.


The final moments of the last race in Russia proved that anything can happen in F1 and fortunes can change in the blink of an eye. This season is keeping all of us on our toes and that's something we're enjoying immensely, but it also means we have to be aggressive with our approach to the season, in order to maximise the points available.


That's our focus for Turkey and beyond. I know Lewis, Valtteri and the entire team are fired up for the battle that lies ahead, and we look set for another exciting race this weekend at Istanbul Park, where there are still many unknowns for us because of the track surface and weather conditions in 2020.


It's an exciting track layout and a good one for racing, so I think we'll be in for another spectacular twist in this brilliant F1 season.


Fact File
The run from pole position to the first braking zone at Istanbul Park is one of the shortest on the F1 calendar, measuring just 170 metres. The track we've just been to, the Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi) Autodrom, has the longest with an 891-metre stretch.


Drivers don't spend as much time at full throttle around Istanbul Park compared to many of the tracks on the 2021 F1 schedule, with just 59% of the lap time and 72% of the lap distance taken at full throttle.


The track's iconic, quadruple-apex Turn 8 corner isn't as challenging for the cars and drivers as it once was, when F1 raced in Turkey from 2005 to 2011. Due to the increased downforce levels of the cars. However, it remains the highest lateral g-force experienced by the drivers over the course of the lap, measuring 4.6g.


Because Istanbul Park isn't as frequently used as other F1 venues and with it being resurfaced ahead of last year's event, the track evolution is high - meaning, the track starts the weekend fresher (or 'greener') and develops more grip as more laps are completed and more rubber is laid down.


The new track surface, very cold temperatures and wet weather on Saturday and Sunday of last year's Turkish Grand Prix made conditions incredibly tricky for the drivers, lacking grip throughout the weekend. We saw the second-coldest temperatures of the season, after the Eifel Grand Prix at the Nurburgring, with an average air temperature of 13°C and average track temperature of 15°C.


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel) still holds the lap record at the Turkish GP with his 1:25.049 from 2011. Last year, we predicted the modern cars would be around four seconds quicker in Qualifying trim, but because of the weather and conditions, the best lap times were in the late 1:40s. Even with dry running on Friday, the slippery new track surface meant the best lap was a 1:28.330 by Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen).


Istanbul Park is one of seven anti-clockwise track layouts on the 2021 F1 calendar, the others being: Imola, Interlagos, Baku, COTA (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/4/austin), Jeddah and Yas Marina. These layouts increase the strain on the opposite side of the driver's neck, which isn't used to experiencing these forces due to there being more clockwise circuits.


Tyre degradation was traditionally quite high in Turkey, but due to the unusual conditions last year, it was difficult to get a reading on tyre degradation and wear. In any case, you can run the tyres down to very low rubber at Istanbul Park because of the smooth new tarmac.


In terms of car set-up, Turkey is what the engineers call 'middle of the pack', because most of its characteristics are pretty average, so not on either end of the spectrum in terms of downforce and power sensitivities.


However, with a fair few slow corners, traction zones and long straights, the one element it is a bit higher on is fuel consumption, so this will be a consideration over the weekend.


We expect the track surface to be higher grip this weekend. The surface has been treated, and it should have naturally aged, too. Plus, freshly laid bitumen (like last year) is greasy, and those oils should have dissipated now with normal weather aging of the surface.


Turkey is one of the better circuits in F1 for overtaking, because there are several big braking zones and corners leading onto longer straights which offer several different lines.

Turkish GP: Preview - Red Bull

This weekend we are celebrating what would have been Honda's last home race in Japan, what will you miss most about the Japanese GP?

Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): I really enjoy the Japanese Grand Prix so it's a shame that we will miss it. I will miss the fans the most, it's always a lot of fun seeing the fans in Japan as they are so passionate about Formula One. I also hope they like the new livery that we have on the car this weekend.


You'll be racing in a unique livery and race suit this weekend, are you excited to see the car and does it feel special to race in a one off race livery?

MV: It always feels special to race for Honda, even without the special livery. For us as a Team and for Honda to miss out on the Japanese GP is a shame, but it's cool that we can do something in Turkey instead to celebrate. I'm excited to see the it and it's really special to have the car look different for a race so I'm looking forward to that.


What are your happiest memories of racing with Honda?

MV: My happiest memories with Honda are of course the wins, especially my first win with them, that was very emotional. Working together with Honda has been such a pleasure and they are super motivated every single race and they are super passionate in terms of delivering the best they can all the time. So it has been really enjoyable working with them.


Last year's Turkish GP was one to forget, how are you feeling heading into this race weekend?

MV: Last year's Turkish GP was of course not the best weekend for us as a Team but I think it will be quite different circumstances this year, hopefully the tarmac will be a bit more grippy. I think it will be quite a new weekend in general for everyone, there will be a lot to learn so I'm looking forward to seeing how competitive we are there.


You had a strong race in Russia, leading multiple laps, has that given you the confidence going into the final seven races?

Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): I am very confident in this car, I think lately we have been showing good signs of pace, but I am conscious we must put it together to get the car where it deserves on the grid and then back into scoring those big points, to get us where we want to be in the Championship, come the end of the season.


You've been working hard at the factory with your Team since the Russian GP. How beneficial has that been?

SP: Yes, we did a lot of work after Russia to analyse what went wrong and what went right and where we can look to improve. I have spent some more time on the sim ahead of Turkey too, so we have done some pretty intense homework for this weekend. I am looking forward to the last seven races now and I am sure our luck will turn, we are performing well on track but now we must show that with our results on a Sunday, I want to be back on the podium this weekend.


We would have been racing in Japan this weekend, what will you miss about the Japanese GP?

SP: I am very sad to not be racing in Japan this weekend, it was going to be something very special to race there with a Honda engine but instead we will be aiming to deliver the fans watching back in Japan, a great result this weekend, in their honour.


This weekend we are celebrating what would have been Honda's last home race in Japan. What is your experience of Honda so far?

SP: I have been very impressed with Honda and I am very proud to be a part of such a historic brand. I love the Japanese culture and how the team at Honda work, the moment you speak to anyone there, they start working

Turkish GP: Preview - Ferrari

Formula 1 fires up its engines for round 16 of the season at the Istanbul Park circuit on the outskirts of the Asian side of the Turkish city. The circuit is 5.338 kilometres long and features 14 corners, six to the right and eight to the left. This venue dropped off the Formula 1 scene after 2011, hosting a Grand Prix again in 2020, after the Covid-19 pandemic turned the calendar on its head and it is back this year.


Istanbul Park is a favourite with the drivers as it features several changes of gradient and boasts several demanding corners. Among the most interesting is the first one, which plunges steeply downhill to the left immediately after the start-finish straight and the infamous turn 8, with its four apexes. This section is tricky for the drivers, spectacular for spectators and very hard on the tyres that, at one point, are under load for around six seconds. There are two DRS zones: one on the main straight and the other on the back one, just before turn 11 to 12. The race runs over 58 laps, equivalent to 309.396 km. Last year, grip levels were particularly low, but for this year's race the track has been resurfaced.


As was the case for Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) in Russia, in Turkey Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) will take a completely new power unit fitted with the new hybrid system. Therefore he will start from the back of the grid with the aim of climbing up the order to try and score some points.


Mattia Binotto will not attend the Turkish Grand Prix, but as was the case several times last year, the Team Principal will be based in the Maranello factory to focus on development of next year's car. He will of course follow all sessions and the race from the Remote Garage, with a permanent link to the team at Istanbul Park.


https://www.pitpass.com/70906/Turkish-GP-Preview-Ferrari




Turkish GP: Preview - Pirelli For the Turkish Grand Prix, which was added to the calendar to replace Singapore this year, the three tyres in the middle of the range have been nominated: C2 is the P Zero White hard, C3 is the P Zero Yellow medium, and C4 is the P Zero Red soft. This is one step softer than the nomination made for the Turkish Grand Prix last year, which was held in November after a nine-year absence from the calendar.


The decision to go one step softer is based on the data collected last year, which demonstrated a track with average levels of abrasion and low grip, resulting in an extremely slippery surface that nonetheless showed rapid track evolution.


The track was entirely re-asphalted just prior to the Turkish Grand Prix last year. Since then, the asphalt may have matured slightly and it's also been completely cleaned with a high-pressure water jet. So this year drivers should benefit from better grip as a consequence of the softer compounds, higher asphalt roughness, and the likelihood of higher temperatures compared to last year.


On October 18 at Paul Ricard in France, Alpine will carry out the day of testing with 18-inch intermediate and full wet tyres that was originally scheduled for Magny-Cours.


Track Characteristics
The best-known corner at Istanbul Park is Turn 8, which has been described as one of the great corners in Formula 1. It's very long, at 640 metres (or 12% of the entire lap) and taken at high speed, with several apexes that place forces peaking at more than 5g on the cars and tyres.


As a result, Turkey is a tough track for tyres: with plenty of force going through the tyres. The cars consequently run high downforce to help push the tyres onto the ground.


Many other corners place considerable demands on the tyres as well: Turn 1 is approached with a significant descent before heading uphill, and the back straight also contains a swooping uphill kink nicknamed 'Faux Rouge' in homage to Spa. The entire track layout makes plenty of use of the area's natural elevation.


This year's weather remains a question mark, with the race being held more than a month earlier than it was in 2020. With rain dominating proceedings last year, the teams don't have much relevant tyre data - especially as the softest C4 compound has never been taken to Istanbul before.


The winning strategy last year, at the grand prix in which Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) won a record-equalling seventh title as well as the race, was a one-stopper with eight laps on the Cinturato Blue full wet followed by 50 laps on the Cinturato Green intermediate.

Hamilton was one of only four drivers to stop once, as the majority stopped twice.


Mario Isola: "Turkey was one of the most dramatic and unpredictable races of last season, mostly due to a very slippery track as a consequence of low grip from the new asphalt. The slipperiness of the circuit, exacerbated by the rain, caught many people by surprise, and that's why this year we've opted for a softer tyre nomination, also with the race taking place more than a month earlier, which should result in higher temperatures.


"Following our tyre nomination, the track has undergone a high-pressure water cleaning process, which should lead to greater roughness and more grip, so there's also the possibility that with softer compounds we will face higher wear levels compared to last year. That's something we will only find out when we get there, so the work done in free practice will be very useful. Because everything was so new last year, we took the conservative option of coming with the hardest tyres. Going a step softer this weekend will probably open up the possibility of a few different strategies as well."

A Alonso hoy le han preguntado por su salida de pista en la salida del GP de Rusia, se le han hinchado y no se ha callado ni una pizca. Este es el Alonso que le gusta a McH. :sisi1:



Algunas cosillas que ha dicho:



ALO: "Durante la mayor parte del mundial, he sido el idiota al que han adelantado por fuera de la pista en las dos primeras curvas y nadie dijo nada. Cuando yo hago las cosas, tiene una repercusión distinta. Tras Sochi quizá cambien lo que se puede y lo que no se puede hacer en las dos primeras curvas de las salidas".


ALO: "No quiero estar llorando en cada carrera por lo que hacen los demás. Si le decimos al árbitro que están jugando con las manos dentro del área y no hace nada, entendemos que nosotros también podemos jugar con las manos dentro del área. Así que lo hacemos" #BBC (https://twitter.com/hashtag/BBC?src=hashtag_click)





También le han preguntado su opinión sobre la no sanción a Norris al pisar la línea blanca en la entrada al pit lane.



ALO: "Hay reglas diferentes según el piloto. A ver quién es el próximo en cruzar la línea blanca para entrar a boxes, de dónde es y la sanción que se lleva. Esto es sólo para confirmar que cuando yo hago algunas cosas, tienen una repercusión diferente".

FORMULA 1 ROLEX TURKISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Estambul - Intercity Istanbul Park
Resultados FP1
Viernes, 8 de octubre de 2021


Lewis HAMILTON comienza el fin de semana en Turquía marcando el mejor tiempo y, además, con diferencia ya que el segundo, Max VERSTAPPEN, ha terminado a casi medio segundo.

La tercera posición ha sido para LECLERC. Tras él han finalizado BOTTAS y Carlos SAINZ, que estrenaba motor.

Fernando ALONSO ha terminado 9º a más de un segundo.

Checo PÉREZ sigue finalizando demasiado atrás. Ha sido 10º.

Durante la sesión ha habido bastante viento, con ráfagas que han llegado a los 40 km/h.

La pista está mucho menos resbaladiza que el año pasado. Parece que el tratamiento que le han hecho al asfalto, ha funcionado.

Interesting note on this pic from @amsonline (https://twitter.com/amsonline) There are two optical sensors that measure the movement of the red dots on the socket. These measure the number of turns the nut has been fastened on with. Teams started using this last season, so its not related to the new 'delay'



https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FBL3oAnXIAASPWi.jpg:large


https://pbs.twimg.com/media/FBL3oZBX0AE7uM3.jpg:large





The gun also has a torque sensor, but with a cross threaded nut, meeting the torque threshold doesn't mean the nut is on. Knowing it's been turned 'x' number of turns is another means to crosscheck with the torque sensor that the wheel is secure.

Impresiones de los equipos después de la jornada de Prácticas del Viernes:



Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Mercedes Lewis set the pace in both practice sessions on a much-improved track surface at Istanbul Park, enjoying the increased grip levels. Valtteri banked consistent running while experimenting with a range of balance configurations, with both drivers running the Medium and Soft tyre compounds.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): The track felt so different to last year - in 2020, oil was rising from the new surface and the grip was so difficult to find. Coming into this weekend, I didn't know what to expect when we went out there but the level of grip was intense, it was awesome. The track is so much more enjoyable to drive.


We started off with a really great setup in FP1, the first session was strong. We made some changes between the sessions and combined with track evolution, the car didn't feel quite as good but we made some important learnings, for sure. We're fairly close to the maximum we can extract from the package but we always find something overnight, so we'll be working hard to take our pace into tomorrow - hopefully it isn't raining! I have a lot of work to do on Sunday and I need to just focus on getting the best out of tomorrow, obviously aiming for pole to limit the loss of the penalty.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was a lot faster than last year! FP1 today was over 10 seconds faster than last year and it's actually become one of the grippiest tracks we have on the calendar which makes it a lot of fun - I enjoyed it today. Last year the balance was geared towards correcting understeer with the low grip but now we can be a bit more aggressive with the car.


In FP1 we were all trying to adapt and read the balance. Our starting point was a bit off but by FP2, the car was feeling was pretty good. No big issues and no red flags so a lot of running and it feels like it could be a strong weekend for us. Looking at the timing board, it looks like a good track for Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) but I'm sure Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) have a lot more to come, as we all do. It's going to be close.


Andrew Shovlin: We've had a solid day; both cars are showing good pace on single lap and long run. We had to move the setup quite a bit over the course of the day as the track had more grip than we were expecting but it looks like we have ended up in about the right place. We need to go through the data to understand where the three tyre compounds are in terms of pace and degradation; we'd expected them to suffer a bit more given the high energy corners here but they seem to be holding up surprisingly well.


It feels like other teams may have come in with the same preconceptions, as we saw a lot of soft tyres being used over the course of the day. The indications from free practice are that it's going to be quite a challenge for Lewis to overtake on track but we're looking at all the options available to us in strategy and on car setup to allow us to fight back on Sunday. Valtteri has had a good start to the weekend and looked to have the edge on Max today. We'll be working hard to try and keep that edge as it's obviously a big boost to both championships if we can get Valtteri in front on Saturday and Sunday.


https://www.pitpass.com/70928/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-Mercedes


Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "It's a super nice track especially with the improved conditions but it looks like we have a lot to go through this evening because today wasn't the best of days. We tried a few different things going from FP1 to FP2 but we're still looking around for improvements as we don't have a lot of data on these cars for this track. Of course, Lewis is taking a penalty on Sunday but we have to focus on ourselves, hopefully we can make improvements before qualifying tomorrow as we have some challenges, we'll see what we can do. I'm just looking forward to the rest of the weekend and getting back out there on track."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "It has been a positive Friday overall and with the work we will do this evening we should be looking good for qualifying. The amount of grip surprised me today; it is more like a standard track out there now, but it is still very challenging because the grip is not consistent.

Sometimes on the entrance to the corner you have less grip than on the exit, so as a driver it is difficult to adjust to that aspect of this track. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) look strong here but hopefully overnight we are able to chip away a couple of tenths and be in the mix for tomorrow. It is all about compromise because if you try and get the ideal balance for qualifying over one lap then you compromise the long run pace a bit, which is important here because overtaking is relatively easy. There is the potential of rain for qualifying tomorrow, but we will be well prepared, whatever the weather."



https://www.pitpass.com/70921/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-Red-Bull




Turkish GP: Practice team notes - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "It felt good to be back in the car and to get things going again. It's been a decent Friday, quite different conditions to what we had in Turkey last season. It feels like a different track altogether. I think we learned quite a bit today in preparation for tomorrow and the race. Friday was exactly what we needed, and we'll try to do better again tomorrow."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Firstly, it was fun, in terms of the track and the level of grip. It was so different to last year and definitely more enjoyable. I'll be very surprised if a driver says otherwise! It's pretty high speed and sections of it are pretty relentless, which just makes it a good track to drive around.

I think the time doesn't really represent the feeling in the car today. I feel a lot better than where we are on the timesheets, so we're not concerned about that. We've still a bit of work to do on setup, but nothing too crazy. We'll push on tonight, do some productive work and come out swinging tomorrow."


Andrea Stella, Executive Director, Racing: "The circuit we've used today is very different to the one we had last year, with asphalt much closer to 'normal' in terms of grip. Our main objective today was understanding tyre behaviour in preparation for qualifying and the race. We had two good sessions, didn't face any major problems and have gathered a lot of data. We're in a pretty good place in terms of being prepared for the race, but of course before that we have qualifying, and the forecast shows there's some inclement weather around. It looks like it's going to be an interesting Saturday."


https://www.pitpass.com/70927/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-McLaren




Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Aston Martin Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "Today was about discovering a circuit that has recently had work done to improve the grip compared to last year, not to mention the tricky wind conditions for everyone out there. On our side, there are positives to take from today, but we know we need to find more pace in the car for the rest of the weekend. I am confident we can do so and we are targeting improvements in the balance of the car too. The main thing is that we know what we need to do. We will go away tonight and work hard to move forward."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "Overall, I think we had a decent start to the weekend. We found a baseline in FP1 and, in the afternoon, we were exploring the limits and trying different things. I think there is more that we can learn in FP3 tomorrow ahead of qualifying, which is positive. After the recent work here, it still feels very much like the same circuit but with different grip conditions, so the targets have not changed much. For example, we know it is very important to have a strong front end, or it can be quite costly across a lap. Our task now is to optimise what we learned in both sessions and have a good qualifying session tomorrow."

Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Alpine Alpine F1 Team finished with both cars inside the top ten in both Friday practice sessions at Istanbul Park, as preparations got underway for the ninth edition of the Turkish Grand Prix.


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) - returning to Istanbul Park for the first time in ten years was seventh - with Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) finishing his Friday 0.012secs behind his teammate in eighth.


Drivers ventured into the relatively unknown in Free Practice 1, with question marks on the track condition of the 5.338km circuit. Those concerns were eased in the early running with the track clearly in much improved condition than last season. Fernando began his day on Mediums (C3) and an aero rake fitted to his car with Esteban on Hards (C2). Esteban finished the morning in sixth as the only driver to complete his fastest lap time on the Hard compound with Fernando in ninth.


In Free Practice 2, both drivers aimed to continue from their positive start to the weekend by assessing the Softs (C3) in qualifying trim. Fernando's 1min 24.660secs slotted him into seventh. Esteban built up his run plan and found improvements throughout the session, ending the day narrowly behind Fernando in eighth.


After the chequered flag during practice race starts, Esteban suffered a small issue on his A521 where he was unable to select first gear on the grid. The team is investigating the cause.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's been a solid Friday for us today and probably one of the most interesting Fridays we've had this year. We arrived here not knowing what the conditions were going to be like and it turned out it was much improved in comparison to last year with very high grip; probably one of the highest levels of grip we've experienced this season. It's great to take on this track in these conditions and experience the layout. We had very good performance in FP1, inside the top five throughout, and then again in FP2 we were well inside the top ten. We've learnt a lot today that we can put into action tomorrow, so I'm looking forward to seeing what we can do."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "Today was like discovering a new track for the very first time. I think it was the same for everybody after the issues with track grip from last year. It seems the grip is back to normal, which is good news and it means we can have confidence in the car during a lap. We didn't really change much on the car in both sessions, so we were mostly experimenting the tyres today. Again, the weather is the biggest unknown heading into tomorrow, but I think we should be ready for any forecast."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was a productive day today. The circuit has improved significantly since last year with high grip right from the start of FP1, which allowed the drivers to get quickly up to speed. Both Esteban and Fernando were on the pace straight away with some positive feedback on how the car felt on track in the early running. We tried some different set-ups and ideas to find further pace in FP2 and we have a good idea on where we can keep improving ahead of tomorrow. We will keep working and see what the weather is doing tomorrow as there is a chance of rain. It was important to have a good practice day and we're now looking forward to taking on the rest of the weekend."

Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Ferrari Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) produced a solid performance this Friday of the Turkish Grand Prix. During the 120 minutes of free practice at Istanbul Park, both drivers got through their planned programmes without experiencing any problems. As was the case a fortnight ago in Russia, Charles and Carlos each had very different job sheets. In a reversal of the Russian weekend, it was Leclerc who worked in both qualifying and race trim, while Sainz focussed almost entirely on the Grand Prix, given that he starts from the back of the grid, after his car was fitted with a fourth power unit, featuring the new hybrid system first seen on his team-mate's car in Sochi (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/24/sochi).


Carlos thus got to grips with the new hybrid system, completing 59 laps. In the morning session, he only ran the Soft tyres, setting a best time of 1'24"860. In the afternoon, he also ran the Medium compound, before setting his fastest time on the softest tyres in 1'24"903.


Charles also only used the Softs in the morning, posting a time of 1'24"654, completing a total of 27 laps. In the afternoon, he started off with the Medium tyres, doing a 1'24"102, before setting the second fastest time overall, a 1'23"970 on used Softs. In the second part of the session, the Monegasque concentrated on running in race trim, lapping at a constant pace. He did a total of 56 laps.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): Compared to last year, the track has more grip. The car felt really good today, and I really enjoyed driving as I could play with the rear of the car and rotate it like that. This seems to have worked out well for now, as we were quite competitive.


Although things are looking positive so far, it's only Friday. We need to keep our heads down and work on fine tuning the car to have a good qualifying.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): A bit of a different Friday for us obviously, knowing we will start from the back of the grid due to the penalty for changing the PU. We checked everything was running smoothly, tried different set ups and worked with the Soft and Medium tyres, focusing on the long runs. It felt quite strange to go into a Friday without attempting to go fast in the short runs, but our target this weekend is to make up places on Sunday.


The car looks competitive and the track has changed a lot since last year. There's a lot of grip, probably one of the highest of the season so far and it's important to understand how it affects the tyres and the car performance.


https://www.pitpass.com/70926/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-Ferrari


Turkish GP: Practice team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "Today I haven't felt that great in the car, but we've still come away with two strong positions which is positive, and I believe there is more we can give again tomorrow. I wasn't too happy with the balance of the car, as I was experiencing a lot of understeer, so that's something we've got to work on. I believe it's something that a lot of drivers have been experiencing, so we need to go away and analyse what we can do to improve this and hopefully we can continue to improve our performance in FP3."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I think this is a really amazing track and I've really enjoyed my first two sessions here at Istanbul Park. I've been building my confidence up gradually and this afternoon I think we've shown some good pace. The conditions today have been windy but fairly good, however tomorrow there may be rain, so this could prove trickier again. We'll have to see what happens with the weather, and prepare as much as we can for that, but we're happy with the performance of the car so far this weekend and I think we've shown a big improvement."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "We came here with a number of unknowns surrounding how the tyres would behave, given what we all observed last year, alongside what the impact of the measures the circuit have taken to improve the grip here for this weekend would be.

We planned for low-grip conditions but were pleasantly surprised when the first push lap was already faster than anything we achieved in the dry last year, so we were back to more normal conditions. This meant that the car wasn't optimised for the track condition we had in this morning's session, so we had to make a number of changes ahead of FP2. These were for sure in the right direction, but we still faced balance limitations and there is still plenty of room to improve the car for tomorrow. We also approached the weekend differently with Yuki and so far, this has worked - he has more confidence and has performed well. The weather could pose some further excitement tomorrow, particularly in FP3, but we are confident we can find some additional performance in the car overnight."

Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN had a productive first day of practice for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix. Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) got plenty of mileage under their belts to provide the team with all required data ahead of tomorrow's qualifying on the Istanbul Park circuit, with the two drivers ending the day in P10 and P15 respectively.


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "There is obviously a lot of potential in the car and we'll need to unlock it all tonight. In the first practice sessions, we still lacked a bit of balance so there is work to do but we're confident we can turn it around overnight. There is a lot more grip than we expected so we will adapt to those conditions and see where we end up in qualifying."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "I was very happy to find a lot more grip in the track, right from the first lap of FP1. It really feels like a completely different circuit and it's been good fun, especially as we had good balance in the car - so, overall, a good Friday of work. Finding the right feel for the car is easier when there is grip, we could lap confidently and the first indications for tomorrow are promising. We need to see what the weather will do tomorrow: we looked good in the dry but we'll take whatever the conditions will be."

Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Haas Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship began with practice on Friday at Intercity Istanbul Park as teams prepared for Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix.


FP1 commenced with Schumacher straight out on the Pirelli P Zero Yellow medium tires while Mazepin sampled the White hard compound to start. Both drivers banked a handful of wake-up laps before their respective VF-21s were kitted out with the Pirelli Reds for some baseline running - the soft tires delivering Schumacher a best lap of 1:26.363 (P19) and Mazepin a 1:27.019 (P20). High fuel stints concluded the session with Schumacher returning to his mediums and Mazepin on the hard set.


FP2 once again saw Schumacher and Mazepin split their tire strategy to start - the German sampling the hard rubber for the first time and the Russian debuting the medium compound. With the track rubbering in lap times dropped - Schumacher placing P19 setting a best lap of 1:25.480 on softs during his qualifying sim. Mazepin finished directly behind his teammate in P20 having clocked a best lap 1:25.698 on the soft tires. Friday's circuit activities ended with high fuel runs through to the checkered flag.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "It was very interesting because as a rookie and going into one of the very few tracks in Europe that I haven't driven on, I wasn't really sure what to expect. The feedback I received from other drivers and what you can read on social media is that it was incredibly difficult to drive. Ever since I got out there for the first time, I thought the grip was improved. The layout is quite special, it's quite flowing so you need to get a rhythm, which I enjoyed, and I think it could make for a good race weekend."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "The increase in grip was there and the car felt good today. I think we were a lot closer to the pack than usual which is very promising, and I think for tomorrow we have a good idea of what we want and what we need. It's very flowy, it's a very nice track. I got the chance to drive it in the simulator and it definitely lived up to what I drove there so I'm very happy to be racing here this week. I'm going to be doing the rain dance soon."


Guenther Steiner: "It was a productive day today in terms of both drivers getting lots of laps in at a track that's completely new to them - I think we logged over 100 so that's not bad for a Friday.

Both sessions were drama free, which hasn't always been the case this season, so that undoubtedly helped us just work consistently through our run plan. Obviously, it looks like the track has a little more grip this year, which is a plus, the downside being I believe we've got rain on the forecast for the weekend - so we'll see how that plays out. I'd say it's been a positive and busy day from our side."



https://www.pitpass.com/70920/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-Haas


Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Williams Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: As we had hoped, the track conditions are much better than last year, and this has allowed us to concentrate on car set-up. We got off to a good start in FP1 with both drivers happy with their cars. Tyre management at high fuel is a little tricky, especially in turn eight and we have a bit of work to do tonight to understand how best to deal with this on Sunday.


This afternoon we weren't quite as quick as we had hoped on low fuel, but we are confident that we can improve this overnight. Our high fuel pace remained reasonable and we made some progress with the tyre management. The weather forecast remains uncertain for tomorrow and this will impact our plans. However, we are confident that we can do a decent job whatever the weather does, with both drivers showing excellent pace recently in wet and mixed conditions.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70929/drivers/66/george-russell): Our high fuel pace looked pretty strong today, but our low fuel pace wasn't quite as good. We need to go into more detail with the data tonight so we can find something for tomorrow but with rain forecast for overnight and in the morning, it may mean the track conditions will reset quite a lot ahead of qualifying. We have to take these opportunities where conditions are changing to our advantage and we've done that really well in the last few races. It will be a very tricky race on Sunday as no car has done more than 12 laps in a row on a single set of tyres and we've got to do quite a lot more than that during the Grand Prix.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): The surface is not as I expected it to be, particularly from what I saw during the track walk at least, but in a positive way. Obviously, the grip is much higher than last year, and it actually feels much higher than most other tracks in general. Now that the grip is there, it's a really fun circuit to drive and is very fast and flowing. It's quite an enjoyable feeling and it's exceeded my expectations. I'm still struggling to get the tyres in the right window, especially on the low fuel, so I think there's more work to come there but in general the car doesn't feel in a bad window. There's definitely some fine tuning to do but I think we can make a good start tomorrow.


https://www.pitpass.com/70929/Turkish-GP-Practice-team-notes-Williams


Turkish GP: Practice team notes - Pirelli Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) set the pace in free practice at the Turkish Grand Prix, with his best time in FP2 on the P Zero Red soft C4 tyre (1m23.894s) breaking Juan Pablo Montoya's circuit record from 2005, which had already been surpassed in FP1. In the morning, Hamilton was also fastest on the soft, with a time of 1m24.178s. Hamilton and Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) were the only drivers to get under the 1m23s barrier.


The Istanbul Park track - which isn't used much during the year - showed improved grip compared to last year. Hamilton's best FP2 time was around 4,5 seconds faster than the equivalent time in 2020, when the tyre nomination was a step harder.


The FP2 session was run in conditions that peaked at 23 degrees centigrade ambient and 32 degrees on track, with some gusting winds as well: especially at the crucial Turn 8. However, the weather forecast is more uncertain for the rest of the weekend, with a chance of rain tomorrow and drier conditions expected on Sunday.


Istanbul remains one of the biggest challenges of the year for the tyres, which are subjected to a 4.5g load under braking following the long run to Turn 1, while the multi-apex Turn 8 is taken flat out, with the tyres under maximum load for around six seconds. The entry to Turn 12 is another heavy braking area at 5g.


The estimated performance gaps so far between the three compounds are reasonably small here: around 0.5 seconds between P Zero White hard C2 and P Zero Yellow medium C3, and 0.4 seconds between medium and soft. With track evolution (and no major support races on the schedule) those gaps may change over the course of the weekend as more F1 rubber is laid down.


Mario Isola: "From the beginning it was clear that track conditions were much better than last year, with drivers reporting improved grip, and times in both sessions considerably faster than 2020. It's hard to compare this year to last year, because the weather conditions are different and our tyre nomination is a step softer. The track has also been pressure-washed recently, and this has washed off the surface bitumen, although the level of roughness seems to be unaltered. As a result, we've seen consistent grip throughout the lap - albeit slightly affected by today's gusting winds - and all three tyres providing solid performance, with a bit of graining as expected, especially on the front-right. With so many new aspects compared to last year, the teams will be relying heavily on the information collected today to work out the optimal strategy, rather than the data from 2020. However, there's a risk of rain tomorrow that could cause yet another variable. For the race, what we've learned today is that the hard and medium tyres could be favoured to achieve a one-stop strategy, but the soft could also come into play if the teams are able to mitigate wear."

FORMULA 1 ROLEX TURKISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Estambul - Intercity Istanbul Park
Resultados FP3
Sábado, 9 de octubre de 2021


Pierre GASLY ha sido quien ha marcado el mejor tiempo en estos libres que han estado pasados por agua.

Tras él han finalizado los Red Bull de VERSTAPPEN y de Checo PÉREZ. Tras ellos, los Ferrari de Carlos SAINZ y LECLERC, seguidos por Fernando ALONSO.

La sesión comenzó con bastante lluvia y con la pista muy mojada, obligando a quienes se decidieron a salir a montar neumáticos de lluvia.

La lluvia fue bajando de intensidad y la pista fue mejorando mucho, llegando a estar al final casi para montar slicks, aunque nadie lo hizo.

Muchos pilotos decidieron no rodar a penas, ya que la previsión de lluvia para la calificación es menor que para estos entrenamientos, aunque la previsión de que llueva va aumentando.

La acumulación de agua en algunas zonas del circuito ha provocado varias salidas de pista y varios trompos, todos sin consecuencias, excepto la salida de pista de RUSSELL que le obligó a abandonar al quedarse atrapado en la puzolana. Eso sí, sin daños ni para él ni para su coche.

La lluvia sólo apareció en el inicio de la Q1 y de manera muy ligera y por muy poco tiempo, lo que ha permitido que la pista mejorara mucho.

El más rápido ha sido Hamilton, a pesar de sus errores y de no montar un segundo juego de neumáticos blandos para hacerlo. Tras él, Verstappen y Gasly.

Alonso pasa el corte al terminar 8º. Carlos terminó justo detrás, por lo que también pasa a Q2. Ferrari decidirá ahora si sale o no en Q2. Dependerá de si necesitan que le eche una mano a Leclerc para que pase a Q3 dándole algún rebufo.

La sorpresa es ver a Schumacher pasar el corte y a Ricciardo quedarse fuera.

De nuevo Hamilton es el más rápido al marcar el mejor tiempo en Q2, seguido por Bottas, Verstappen, Gasly y un gran Alonso.

En un principio, Carlos no salió, pero Leclerc, debido al trompo que hizo, estaba fuera y salió para darle rebufo en su última vuelta. Finalmente, Lecler pasa a Q1 en 7ª posición.

Todos los que pasaron el corte lo hicieron con el medio, excepto Tsunoda, que lo hizo con el blando.

No hay sorpresas esta vez, aunque pesaba que Ocon sí pasaría el corte, y los eliminados en Q2 son:


11 Vettel
12 Ocon

14 Schumacher
15 Carlos Sainz (sin tiempo)

Resultados Sesión de CALIFICACIÓN
Sábado, 9 de octubre de 2021


El más rápido ha sido Lewis HAMILTON, que no logra la pole por sus 10 posiciones de sanción al montar su 4º ICE. Lo que sí se lleva es el récord del circuito al parar el crono en 1:22.868.

A 130 milésimas ha terminado BOTTAS, que será quien salga desde la pole mañana. Compartirá línea de salida con Max VERSTAPPEN, que intentará ponerse primero en la salida, ya que sabe que el ritmo de los Mercedes es mejor, lo que le complica adelantar a Bottas después de la salida y aguantar a Hamilton cuando llegue a ponerse tras él.

LECLERC ha sabido superar su error en Q2 y el haber tenido que necesitar de la ayuda de SAINZ, que no tenía previsto salir en Q2, para lograr pasar a Q3 y ha relizado una gran última vuelta para terminar en 4ª posición, lo que le permite mañana salir 3º por la sanción de Hamilton.

A su lado tendrá a Pierre GASLY, que ha vuelto ha tener un gran sábado.

Tras él saldrá Fernando ALONSO tras realizar su mejor clasificación del año. El asturiano ha terminado muy contento hoy con su rendimiento y el de su Alpine.

En la salida tendrá a su lado a Checo PÉREZ, que sigue sin pillarle el punto al Red Bul a una vuelta, en carrera ya es otra historia, pero no puede permitirse quedar siempre tan atrás. Mañana tiene que aguantar detrás a Hamilton sea como sea.

NORRIS lleva todo el fin de semana bastante discreto. Parece que todavía está dándole vueltas a la victoria perdida en Rusia. Aún así ha terminado 8º por la 16ª posición de RICCIARDO.

En 9ª posición ha terminado STROLL y tras él TSUNODA, que de los 10 primeros, es el único que montó el blando para pasar a Q3. Mañana, todos los que tendrá delante salen con el medio, así que querrá aprovechar a adelantar en la salida.

Notas de los equipos después de la sesión de Clasificación:



Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Mercedes Lewis put on a commanding display on Saturday in Istanbul, finishing P1 in all three qualifying sessions but will incur a grid penalty for tomorrow's Grand Prix as a result of changing his internal combustion engine (ICE).


A strong performance from Valtteri saw him finish Q3 just 0.1s behind his teammate to go second quickest in what would have been a front-row lockout. He will inherit pole position for tomorrow's race, which both drivers will start on the Medium compound tyre.


Yet again this season, changeable weather conditions and rain showers made tyre selection and the timing of runs extremely difficult for all teams.


Valtteri's pole position moves him level with fellow Finn Kimi Räikkönen on 18.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): It's so good to be back in Turkey, last year was an unbelievable visit here for myself and the Team! Coming back, the track is completely different - the grip level we've got now is absolutely awesome. The session today was really tricky because there were still some damp patches and getting temperature into the tyres for the first lap wasn't easy. But it was a really, really great job by the Team, they got us out at the right time and put in a great performance. Tomorrow is going to be difficult, but I'll give it everything! Overtaking isn't the easiest at the moment and we're all on the same tyre so I imagine tomorrow is going to be difficult to move up. We've got the long straight down the back so we'll see what we can do. Hopefully we can give the fans here a good race!


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was a good Quali - not easy conditions, especially in Q1 which was on the edge with the damp parts and still in Q3 there were damp sections but I put together some good laps! On the final lap, I missed a little in the last sector with some understeer but other than that, the lap was really nice. I enjoyed it and obviously as a team result, today was pretty ideal.


Max is starting next to me and the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) has looked strong this weekend, so it'll be a tough race but we'll give it our all. We have a good race car, I just need to keep the focus on my own race, avoid mistakes and stay ahead. Strategy will always play a part but I'm feeling confident and looking forward to the start and getting the job done.


Toto Wolff: The big positive today is that the car is very quick and Valtteri starts on pole tomorrow, but the negative is that it would have otherwise been a weekend with a front-row lockout for the team. Progress will be tough for Lewis with all cars in front of him other than Tsunoda starting on the Medium tyre and yesterday in the long-run we could see that it's difficult to follow here. But Lewis has made phenomenal recovery drives time and time again, and there's no one else you'd want in the car. Strategy will play a big part and we'll be there to support him. Valtteri has been strong all weekend and he has got a great opportunity tomorrow. He clearly wants the win and it will also help Lewis so he'll be going all-out for it.


Andrew Shovlin: A great job by the team and drivers on a front row qualifying and well done to Lewis on getting P1 today. That was close to the perfect result for us; not quite perfect as we'd have preferred Lewis to be on the Hard tyre for the start tomorrow but that felt like we'd have been taking too much of a risk getting through to the final session given the tricky conditions. Lewis drops back with his engine penalty but it's great that Valtteri inherits pole; he's been on strong form recently and has everything to play for with nothing to lose tomorrow. It's going to be interesting to see how the car and tyres perform tomorrow. Clearly everyone is wary of the Soft tyre and most have kept their options open for the race as far as tyre choice is concerned. Our long runs were looking good on Friday, both in terms of pace and degradation so hopefully we can achieve our goals. It's going to quite a challenge for Lewis to fight through without a tyre advantage. There are some strong cars in that midfield pack and Sergio won't be doing him any favours but we've seen brilliant recovery drives from Lewis in Imola, Silverstone and Budapest so hopefully he can make it happen once again.

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "I am of course happy with third and starting on the front row tomorrow. We improved a little bit from yesterday and the balance is a bit better but overall this weekend has been a bit more difficult. I hope for a clean get away tomorrow but starting on the inside will be tricky, as there is very low grip in both dry and wet conditions compared to the outside, so we are expecting to lose out there slightly. We also need to consider the gap behind us, it's much tighter than usual. We'll aim to make the best of it and try everything we can tomorrow to keep the Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) behind but it's not going to be easy, they've had great pace all weekend."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "We are showing good progress and I think we should be able to continue that into race day. With the mixed conditions in Q1 we lost a set of new softs, meaning we only had one set for Q3. We did a banker lap on the used softs which was a decent time and then we didn't manage to improve as much as we wanted to on the second run, which meant we didn't get the lap time we were looking for. I am feeling positive and I am looking forward to trying to get through the grid and score some good points for the Team. It is a pretty long race around here, overtaking is possible and the tyre degradation will be pretty high out there, so there is everything to play for. I believe if we can get a good clean run into turn one then we will be looking good for the rest of the race and a podium could be possible. We are up for the challenge; we have good strategy and pace."


Christian Horner: "The guys have made a good recovery overnight and fixed some issues we needed to work out. I think the whole engineering Team, both trackside and back at the factory in Milton Keynes, have done a great job to make the progress that we have, hopefully that puts us in better shape for tomorrow. With Max qualifying in third, but starting the race from second, it's going to be vital he gets a good start and tries to get ahead of Bottas early on as Lewis has looked the quickest he's been all year so far around here, so he's going to be coming through pretty quickly. Checo's times on the scrub tyre and the medium tyre were strong, it was just that last run on the new set of softs that didn't come together. The strategy we've picked tomorrow for him should see him be able to make good progress. We think we can be closer to Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) tomorrow than we were in qualifying, so we've got to get our heads down, keep plugging away, get the strategy right and try to capitalise by getting the maximum points we can for both drivers."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A tough day with tricky conditions. We were just lacking pace today, so it was very tough to achieve a lot more than what we did. There was a slim possibility we could've got P7 but even [Sergio] Pérez was quite a bit quicker than us. Not the result we wanted, but I think it was the best result we could really achieve, so we'll try again tomorrow and see if we can do better."


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "Obviously not where we want to be. The track was steadily drying and everyone just kept improving a chunk on that last lap. We didn't make as big a step on that second set of Softs, and we've found it tricky with the Soft most of the weekend so it's just unfortunate to be so far down the grid. We'll find a way to come back tomorrow and try to understand the Soft tyre a bit better. It was probably also a bit of timing, we got quite a few yellow flags in Turn One which put us out of sync early. But I've already moved on from it, so now we'll put our head down for the race tomorrow."


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "A challenging qualifying session for us today with a disappointing outcome, despite working hard overnight to unlock more performance from the car. We haven't made a large step forward on performance and that meant we struggled for pace today - especially on the Soft tyres. That resulted in an early end to Daniel's session, qualifying P16, and Lando, after getting through to Q3 on the Medium tyre, qualified P8 and will start P7. Tomorrow is another day, we're expecting dry conditions and will work hard again this evening to see if we can unlock a little more performance in race trim, with the aim of moving both cars forwards."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Aston Martin Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "After practice yesterday, we made some helpful changes to the car overnight and I think that showed in our performance today. Overall, I am satisfied and it was a good effort. I had a small off during my final run in Q2, but my previous lap was strong enough to make it into Q3. Tomorrow, we will be starting the race from eighth on the Medium tyre, which should put us in a good position for the opening stint. There are a few quick cars out of position on the grid - because of the conditions and various grid penalties - so we will have to capitalise on that, fight until the end, and push every lap to see where we end up."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "The conditions today were always improving and, although the track was mostly dry, there were still some damp areas where I struggled. It was not easy to find a rhythm. I lost most of my lap time in those damp areas, especially in Turn One. After that, it was difficult to make up the deficit on the remainder of the lap. I think we had more pace in the car today so I am not happy to qualify 11th, but starting from 10th means we have a good opportunity to fight for points tomorrow."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "On a drying track Sebastian narrowly failed to get through to Q3, missing out by just 0.153sec. He will start tomorrow's race from P10 , from which grid slot he will be aiming to move up to a points-scoring position. Lance was ninth in Q2, moving smoothly through to Q3 therefore, and repeated ninth in Q3 [net P8], from where he too will be aiming for a good points finish tomorrow."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Alpine Alpine F1 Team will start tomorrow's Turkish Grand Prix with Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) fifth and Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) twelfth on the grid after a hard-fought Qualifying at Istanbul Park.


Fernando reached Q3 for the second time in as many races and qualified in sixth place with Esteban in twelfth after narrowly missing out on the top ten. Fernando moves up a spot on the grid to fifth as a result of Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton)'s grid penalty, meaning his best starting position since the 2014 Japanese Grand Prix. Esteban will occupy the sixth row of the grid for tomorrow's 58-lap race with the seven-time world champion.


After a wet Free Practice 3 on the outskirts of Istanbul, conditions dried ahead of Qualifying at 15:00 local time. The threat of rain continued right up until the start of the session as all cars looked to set a lap-time as early in Q1 as possible. Both Esteban and Fernando were comfortable throughout and, on their second runs on Softs (C4), both drivers improved their lap-time to advance into Q2.


In the second segment of Qualifying, both drivers ran new Mediums (C3) along with all but three cars in the field. Fernando knocked on the door of the top three and progressed to Q3 on a 1min 23.914secs. Esteban was in a tight battle for the top ten and was forced to abort his second run on Mediums with traffic and fell short of reaching the top ten shootout.


[B]Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "It's disappointing not to be in the top ten today as we probably had the pace to be there. Unfortunately, I had to abort my Q2 lap due to traffic and I wasn't able to complete the lap. It would have been close to reaching Q3, but it happens like that sometimes. We're fighting some inconsistencies with the car at the moment, which we're working hard to fix. We'll keep working as a team to progress and get on top of it.

Our focus is immediately on what we can do tomorrow, and the aim is to try and work our way back to the points."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It felt good today and I am happy with the result. The car felt fast, and I think we made the correct choice on which tyres to use in all of the sessions. We were also fast enough to qualify on the Medium tyres in Q2, which was a nice luxury to have! We seem competitive so I think we have a good chance to score points tomorrow.

Let's see if we can keep the pace with those around us. I think strategy will be key, as we saw tyre graining was quite high in dry conditions. We'll be looking at the weather forecast and take it step by step."


Davide Brivio, Racing Director: "It was a tricky session with the weather and the possibility of rain during Q1, so we wanted to get out early and complete a lap time for both cars. It never really rained heavily enough to have a big impact, but it was nevertheless very challenging conditions for the drivers and for the Team. Fernando did extremely well today and will start fifth tomorrow with Lewis' penalty, so that is a good result for us. Unfortunately, Esteban couldn't improve on his final attempt in Q2 meaning he starts in twelfth place. He will have a free tyre choice tomorrow, so let's see if it can be an opportunity and we'll try to recover some places for him and target a top ten finish. The car has shown some good potential this weekend, so let's see what we can do tomorrow when it all counts."

[h=1]Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Ferrari Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) did well in qualifying for the Turkish Grand Prix. Charles secured a spot on the second row thanks to a great last lap in Q3, when he set the fourth fastest time in 1'23"265. It means he starts ahead of all the team's direct rivals in the Constructors' battle.


It was an exciting 60 minutes with rain falling for a good part of Q1, rendering conditions tricky for the rest of the sessions. Everyone in the team, the drivers, those on the pit wall and in the garage, did an impeccable job making the most of every opportunity. Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) played a very important role even though he was always going to start from the back of the grid having changed his PU. He thus did all he could to help the team, firstly by getting into Q2 and eliminating one of the main rivals in the Constructors' battle and then by giving Charles a tow on his final run in Q2.


It looks like being a very busy race tomorrow. Charles starts from third on the grid with a chance of an excellent result. Carlos will be hoping to fight his way up the order from the back row, but the thought of the fight is no doubt an extra motivation. One unknown for both drivers is how the tyres will behave over a long run, an area in which there is still a lot of work to do.


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): I am happy with my qualifying. P4 is a good result for the team, finishing just behind the championship leaders who, at the moment, are still tough for us to beat. We definitely maximised our car's potential today.


Q1 and Q2 were tricky for me, as I opted for a lower downforce set-up this weekend which is the right choice for the race and hopefully should pay off tomorrow. But in today's wet conditions, I slid around quite a bit and had to fight for it.


It was great to see Carlos being there and giving me the slipstream on the final straight in Q2. It was good teamwork and helped us make it to Q3. I am happy with my final lap in the last session and look forward to the race. If the conditions are dry, I am confident that we have good potential.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): It was a pity we were not trying for a fastest time, especially seeing the performance of the car in dry conditions. It is difficult to take, but looking at the big picture it is better to take the penalty now and have a better engine for the remainder of the season.


Our plan was executed perfectly today. In Q1 we took calculated risks to make it comfortably into Q2, bumping one car out which turned out to be a McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren). Then in Q2 I stayed in the garage and went out on a perfectly timed strategy to help Charles with a bit of a slipstream on his Mediums.


For tomorrow, it all depends on how the car feels in traffic and how we can go through the field without damaging the tyres too much. The pace has been encouraging all weekend so we are ready to fight our way up the order as much as possible. Bring it on!


Laurent Mekies: It was a hectic and closely fought qualifying session and the result shows we did a good job of preparing for this Grand Prix. It wasn't easy managing all the variables today, starting with the weather and the choices to be made in terms of levels of aero downforce, especially for Charles. He did a great job, keeping calm even when the situation looked complicated and then he pulled it out of the bag in the end with a wonderful lap. Carlos showed great team spirit, yesterday getting on with a different but useful programme which we hope will pay off tomorrow and today he also played his part when the need arose.


We are well aware the points are given out tomorrow and that tyre management will be very difficult in the race, but we will do our best as always.

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm very happy to have qualified fifth today, and then to be starting P4 tomorrow after Lewis' penalty. The team have made such a big improvement to the car since yesterday, as I was really struggling with understeer. It wasn't the easiest to see if these changes had worked this morning, as FP3 was wet, but as soon as we got to Qualifying, I was competitive and that was really positive. I'm confident heading into tomorrow's race after the big step-up we've made with the car today and I'm hopeful we can score big points in the race."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "I have to say I'm still slightly disappointed with my performance today, I really believe that the pace of the car was there, and I could've been starting tomorrow further up the grid. The team did a fantastic job but unfortunately, I just couldn't put it all together in Q3. I'll be starting tomorrow's race on the Softs, which is a different strategy to most of the other cars around me, so I'll have to prepare tonight and take every opportunity I can tomorrow. It's still positive to qualify in the top 10, the main goal for me this weekend is to finish in the points, and I hope that tomorrow I can do that from a strong starting position."


Jonathan Eddolls (Chief Race Engineer): "Following FP2 we made some big changes to the car to improve the balance, as both drivers were continuing to struggle with this in yesterday's afternoon session. Due to FP3 being wet, we didn't get the opportunity to try our dry settings ahead of Qualifying, but we saw that these still worked well in those conditions, which was positive ahead of Quali. We used the session to complete some further tests to increase our understanding of the tyres on a wet track and we also continued to show the good pace we have here this weekend. Heading into Quali, we decided to use a slightly different tyre plan with each driver. We wanted Yuki to get the highest possible starting position, so we gave him an additional set of Softs, whereas for Pierre we aimed to optimise his race strategy by using just the Mediums in Q2. Pierre managed to maximise every lap and had a fantastic Saturday afternoon, it's a shame to be so close to P4 but the improvements we've made overnight to minimise the gap to Leclerc have worked really well. Likewise, Yuki has really made a step up this weekend and it's great to see him back in Q3. The whole team has done some great work so far to have both cars starting in the top 10 tomorrow."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN had a challenging day in Istanbul as Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) qualified in P18 and P19 respectively for the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix.

On a damp track after this morning's persistent rain, the Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN team couldn't turn their pace into positions and saw both drivers bow out of the session after Q1.


Both Antonio and Kimi will make up at least a place owing to penalties to other drivers, and will aim to make up ground in tomorrow's race.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "It's obviously disappointing not to turn what had started as a promising day into a good qualifying result. We had looked strong in the rain in FP3, but when it came to this afternoon, we weren't able to put together the laps we needed. We need to regroup and recapture the form we had earlier in the weekend ahead of tomorrow: it's a long race and the conditions are still an unknown, so we could have a good chance to make up ground and come home with a good result."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "We were pretty good in the rain this morning, so it's a shame not to make it past Q1 today. We tried our best but we couldn't really put the laps together. When we finally got the right grip at the end of the session, we were stuck behind another car and that was it. A lot of small things went wrong today, so let's focus on tomorrow. Hopefully we will have some changeable conditions and a bit of chaos to help us make up places."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We looked ok coming into qualifying, but we didn't put everything together when we had to. The conditions were difficult, some parts of the track were drying but others rather wet: in the end, it is what it is and we need to work to make it better for the race. It's only Saturday, we race tomorrow and we will give our best. Our race pace was not too bad: if we have a good first lap, we can have our say."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) qualified 14th and 20th, respectively, for Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix, Round 16 of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship at Intercity Istanbul Park.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) exited qualifying in P20 after Q1 - the opening knockout round, while teammate Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) progressed to Q2 courtesy of P14 in a frantic session. With the threat of rain imminent, little time was wasted and both Schumacher and Mazepin successfully ran three new sets of Pirelli P Zero Red soft tires in Q1.


Track conditions remained tricky after the earlier rain shower which blighted final practice. Schumacher set his best lap of 1:25.555 on his final tour - moving on to Q2 for the second time in his rookie year in P14. Mazepin's last lap was his quickest, a 1:28.449 to place 20th overall - however, the Russian will start P19 on the grid with Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) starting last following a grid penalty for a PU change.


Schumacher joined the top 15 competing in Q2, the German setting a fastest lap of 1:25.200 to secure P14 on the timesheets - equaling his highest grid start of the season from the Russian Grand Prix.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "I went out there and obviously the grip was good enough on most of the track for the slick tires but Turn 1 caught me out so we boxed from that set and then I wasn't really sure where to push, how to push. In these conditions I was caught out as we expected the rain to come so I had two laps to do, but obviously the rain didn't come. I needed to do a lap and I did a lap, but it wasn't good enough today."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "Those tricky conditions were fun to drive, I enjoyed it and I think we as a team took the right decisions at the right time. We analyzed it properly, we went through all the steps we usually do and found the right set-up for the right conditions. It's gone well from FP1, it's been a nice feeling on track in the car so I'm happy. We got to drive, show our performance and I think maybe we even had a tenth or two in there. Tomorrow, hopefully we're able to keep the position or even be a bit further forward."


Guenther Steiner: "All in all, a good day for the team today with getting Mick into Q2 and participating in it, unlike last time where he couldn't. He shows with hard work - even if your car is not as good - you can still achieve results. Everyone did a great job, Mick driving and the team making no mistakes in a difficult situation with the rain coming and going, everything was done right. For Nikita, we tried our best but he just doesn't get along with Turn 1 here. When he was on a fast lap, his time was disallowed because of exceeding track limits in Turn 1 so he couldn't get a complete lap in. The team did a good job today and what more can you wish for at the moment."

Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Williams George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70943/drivers/66/george-russell) qualified 13th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 17th for the Turkish Grand Prix. George reached Q2 using the soft Pirelli tyre, setting a best lap time of 1:25.417 in Q1.


Nicholas recorded his fastest lap, a 1:26.086, on his final effort of Q1 using the soft tyre but unfortunately missed out on progressing to Q2. On his final flying lap in Q2 using the medium tyre, George looked set to progress to Q3 but lost time running wide in the final corner and failed to improve on his best time of a 1:25.007.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Both drivers showed excellent pace today in tricky conditions, but both were unlucky at key moments. The rain held off longer than we expected at the start of Q1, but we adapted and were in decent positions. George was able to improve and make Q2 but for Nicky, a small mistake at T1 cost him his first effort and we then had to decide whether to push again or prepare for a final push lap. We opted to push again but with conditions improving, other cars had the opportunity to better his time and unfortunately, he missed out.


In Q2, we opted for a strategy similar to Austria and George was on an excellent lap on the Option tyre when a small mistake at the last corner robbed him of a certain place in Q3.


The car has worked well this weekend and we made some good decisions today, but the margins for error are so small in Formula One, that we are left frustrated by the end result. More rain is expected overnight and so there are likely to be further opportunities tomorrow when we hope to enjoy some better luck.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70943/drivers/66/george-russell): There were too many mistakes on my side today. At the end of Q2, I was on a really strong lap which would have easily been good enough to get us through to Q3. I unfortunately lost all the time in the last corner which is a big shame as the lap up to that point was incredible. I'm really trying to push the boundaries at the moment, but I went over it today and it's not good enough from my side. The conditions weren't easy but it's the same for everybody and I expect more from myself.


It's going to be an interesting race tomorrow as the green track means that nobody knows for sure what the right strategy is going to be and how the tyres are going to perform. Unfortunately, it's now going to be much harder for us starting from 13th rather than inside in the top 10, so it's frustrating.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): The car was feeling decent and the track conditions were quite changeable, with the rain starting and stopping, so it was about being on the track at the right moment and setting a lap when it mattered. Every time I was doing a lap, it was consistently putting me in the top 15. But on the last two laps, when the track was at its driest, we didn't execute it. It's very frustrating as the performance has been good enough to progress into Q2 in the last few races.


https://www.pitpass.com/70943/Turkish-GP-Qualifying-team-notes-Williams


Turkish GP: Qualifying team notes - Pirelli The pole position lap was set by Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton), using the soft C4 tyre to beat last year's pole (set in wet weather) by 25 seconds and break the Istanbul Park track record that he set yesterday. With Hamilton dropping out of the top 10 tomorrow due to an engine change penalty, pole position effectively belongs to his team mate Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas), who qualified second.


The weather was one of the main influences on the action today, with drivers jockeying for position in Q1 to set a banker time, after heavy rain was predicted shortly after the beginning of qualifying. This never materialised although conditions remained humid and cool, with the session getting underway in ambient temperatures of 20 degrees ambient and 23 degrees on track. The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) duo were the only drivers to get through Q1 on just one set of soft tyres.


The drivers all ran the soft tyre in Q1 and Q3, but the P Zero Yellow medium was seen in Q2: which dictates the tyres the top 10 on the grid use for the race start. All 15 drivers in Q2 set their best time on the medium compound, with the exception of Alpha Tauri's Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda) and Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) driver Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher). Only Tsunoda managed to get in the top 10, so he will be the sole driver who qualified in the front half of the grid to start on the soft. Tsunoda was also the only driver to run the medium in the first part of Q3.
The FP3 session in the morning was held in wet conditions from start to finish, with the drivers running the Cinturato full wets and intermediates.


The fastest way to approach the 58-lap Turkish Grand Prix is a two-stopper, with one stint on the P Zero Yellow medium and two on the P Zero White hard. This is because two stops minimise graining and wear, allowing drivers to push harder during shorter stints.


Next-quickest is a one-stopper, going from the medium to the hard (and the next-fastest strategy after that involves doing two stints on the medium and one on the hard). So the nine drivers who got through Q2 on the medium tyre, and will therefore start the race on this compound tomorrow, have a few options available to them (depending on which tyres they have available).


However, a more aggressive two-stop 'sprint' strategy using the P Zero Red soft tyre to start the race might also pay off under the right circumstances - so the strategy is finely balanced. Those starting on the soft tyre will need to stop relatively soon into the race due to the high wear rates on this compound (also because of the pressure-washed track surface) but after that they also have options.


The pit stop time loss penalty in Turkey is one of the lowest of the year at 20 seconds, which works in favour of a two-stopper: especially if it turns into an eventful race.


Mario Isola: "The rain had the effect of re-setting the track, but even in the wet conditions of free practice, the drivers reported a lot more grip compared to last year. The drivers then got to grips with the rapidly-evolving track on slicks again during qualifying, with nearly all of them choosing the medium for Q2. A two-stopper using the medium for one stint and the hard for two stints is on paper the fastest strategy tomorrow, but a medium-hard one-stopper or a 'sprint' strategy using the soft can't be discounted either, so there are some interesting possibilities. The weather will also have a part to play, with the risk of rain still present. If this turns out to be the case, the wet running in FP3 will have been extremely valuable. The crossover points between both wets and intermediates as well as intermediates and slicks are lower than other tracks, and this will have an influence on strategies in changeable conditions."

FORMULA 1 ROLEX TURKISH GRAND PRIX 2021 - Estambul - Intercity Istanbul Park
Resultados CARRERA
Domingo, 10 de octubre de 2021


Después de más de un año, Valtteri BOTTAS vuelve a lo más alto del podio al llevarse la victoria en Estambul, en una extraña carrera con pista mojada pero sin lluvia. Bottas ha hecho una muy buena salida y ha dominado la carrera de principio a fin, demostrando su control aumentando su ritmo en la últimas vueltas para marcar la vuelta rápida en la última vuelta con un crono de 1:30.432.

VERSTAPPEN mantuvo la segunda posición en la salida y en ella llegó a la meta.

Gran carrera de Checo PÉREZ, que avanzó varias posiciones en la salida y logró mantener tras él a Hamilton sin amilanarse, regalándonos una bonita pelea entre ambos. Su buen hacer hoy le ha valido para subir al podio.

A las puertas del podio se ha quedado LECLERC, que intentó acabar la carrera sin entrar a boxes ya que estaba en primera posición pero que comenzó a perder tanto tiempo que se vió obligado a entrar.

Otro que intentó no parar fue Lewis HAMILTON. Su equipo le llamó en varias ocasiones para hacer su parada pero él no estaba nada convencido. Al final lo convencieron para que entrara a falta de 8 vueltas, lo que le dejó en la 5ª posición y con muchas dudas de si debería de haberse quedado fuera.

Tras él cruzó la meta GASLY, que en la salida tocó a Fernando ALONSO cuando este estaba adelantándole en la primera curva y que le costó una penalización de 5 segundos a él y caer al fondo de la cola a Fernando. Fernando recibió también una sanción de 5 segundos al tocar a SHUMACHER y hacerle trompear cuando intentaba recuperar posiciones a toda costa.

La 7ª plaza ha sido para NORRIS, que ha tenido una carrera sin complicaciones.

Gran remontada de Carlos SAINZ desde la 19ª plaza hasta la 8ª realizando muy buenos adelantamientos. Carlos podría haber quedado más arriba de no ser porque su parada duró nada menos que ocho segundos.

Las dos últimas posiciones de puntos han sido para STROLL y para OCON, que ha sido el único piloto que ha completado la carrera sin cambiar los neumáticos.

VETTEL fue el único piloto que se la jugó a montar slicks. Paró y montó neumáticos medios pero tras dar una vuelta, viendo que era imposible mantenerse dentro de la pista, volvió a parar para montar intermedios.

El comportamiento de la pista ha sido de lo más raro, ya que no han logrado que se secara a pesar de que no ha llovido. Al principio daba la sensación de que en pocas vueltas la pista iba a estar lo suficientemente seca como para montar slicks pero todos se/nos quedamos esperando. Esto ha hecho que los pilotos tuvieran que gestionar los neumáticos esperando que se secara lo suficiente como para parar y montar slicks hasta el final pero pasaron las vueltas y ese momento nunca llegó.

Ha sido una carrera super-extraña, con agua, amenaza de lluvia constante, gotas, etc, pero basicamente ha sido como una carrera en seco sin obligación de montar dos tipos de neumáticos.

Impresiones de los equipos tras la Carrera:



Turkish GP: Race team notes - Mercedes On a persistently damp track with light rain hovering above, Valtteri completed an impressive victory at the Istanbul Park Circuit, also claiming the bonus point for fastest lap in the closing stages.


Lewis secured P5 having started the race in P11 after taking a ten-place grid penalty for an ICE change, completing a number of fine overtakes in the opening stages.


All drivers started the race on the Intermediate tyre with stubborn rain clouds lurking overhead and misty drizzle in the air. At one stage, it looked like Lewis could reach the chequered flag without stopping and nurse his bruised set of starting Inters home to claim P3. However, with 15 laps to go, Lewis's tyres dropped off and, losing time to the cars behind, he needed to pit for a fresh set. He emerged in P5 without sufficient laps remaining to bridge the gap to the cars ahead.


Having gained a 7 point advantage over VER last time out in Russia with the Dutchman taking an engine penalty, Lewis lost 8 points today with his own engine penalty.


Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen) (262.5 points) leads the Drivers' Championship from Lewis (256.5), with Valtteri in P3 (177 points). The Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes)-AMG Petronas F1 Team (433.5 points) lead Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) (397.5 points) by 36 points in the Constructors' Championship.


Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas): Today was probably one of the best races I've had ever - apart from that one little slide, everything was under control. The car has been fantastic in every possible condition this weekend and I had great confidence with it. It's not easy to choose the strategy here with these conditions - when to stop, which tyre to choose - but I'm glad everything went smoothly for me. When there's only one drying line it doesn't take much for you to go off, you need maximum focus all through the race and so today feels like a well-earned victory. My first win of the year too which feels great and I was happy to bring it home. It also took points off Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) so great for me and the team.


Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton): Today was frustrating but it is what it is - it felt good to be in third and I thought if I could just hold on it would be a great result from 11th. Strategy calls in conditions like today can be so tough. I'm naturally a risk-taker and being third, I was aiming to miss the stop when everyone pitted for new Inters, hopeful that I could get the opportunity to switch to slicks later and gain some good positions. Then the team made the call to come in and you have to rely on your team, accept the choices they make and hope it's the right one - as I always say, we win as a team and we lose as a team. Overall, the car was great this weekend and Valtteri did a great job today. If we can continue to perform like that over the next few races, we'll be in a good position come the end of the season.


Toto Wolff: Absolute dominance from Valtteri today, a 10/10 drive from the get-go from him. He had the race under complete control, not only with his pace but his management of the tyres was fantastic. Well done Valtteri, a very strong weekend.


For Lewis, we had difficult decisions to take throughout the race. We thought we could maybe hold out with him, not stopping, and take third place. Or, if a dry line appeared, maybe even bring him in and switch to the Soft tyre. The balance for us therefore was between pitting, taking it conservatively and fighting with Leclerc and Perez on track for P3 or, by taking a calculated gamble, have a chance to win the race or finish P3.


As it unfolded, we could see Leclerc's pace dropping off on the old Inter, shortly followed by Lewis and then we knew we couldn't go until the end and needed to stop. At that stage, Lewis was losing 1.5 secs to Gasly and Perez and it would be a matter of time before he was caught. We settle for P5 and I'm happy with the decisions we took.


There is always an absolute view and a relative view. The relative view is that in the last race, Red Bull (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/8/red-bull) were very happy to only lose 7 points from a grid penalty - today we lost 8 points so it isn't the end of the world. The absolute view is that today, we could have scored another 3, 4 or 5 points more. But that's fine, the championship is wide open and the fight continues.


Andrew Shovlin: A superbly accomplished drive by Valtteri in the wet today, he had the race under control from start to finish and his fastest lap at the end shows just how much he had in reserve. The only awkward point of his race was giving up the lead to Charles in order to cover Max but that came back to him pretty quickly. Lewis had a busier afternoon - he'd made good progress considering there was no DRS to help and got himself up to fifth, almost passing PER for fourth. At that stage, most cars were stopping but we decided to leave Lewis out for the chance of either running to the end or transitioning to the dry tyre. It started to become clear to us that it was never going to be right for the slicks and our strategy tools were showing that we'd get beaten by PER and LEC anyway if we stayed out, so we took a fresh set of Inters to cut our losses.
We've extended our lead in the Constructor Standings and whilst we've lost a little ground in the Driver Championship, the car pace has been really encouraging here, both wet and dry. We're looking forward to Austin where hopefully we can continue our current run of good form.


https://www.pitpass.com/70967/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Mercedes


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Red Bull Max Verstappen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/46/max-verstappen): "As a Team, to finish second and third here was a great result. It was a pretty straight forward race today and I think in general we had a decent day.

The race was all about managing tyres, to make sure they lasted to the end which means it wasn't the most fun race to drive as you always want to push hard. Nevertheless, I think we maximised the result today and it's good to be leading the Drivers' Championship again. I do wish I had a bit more pace in the car but we are still in the fight, we'll keep pushing and we'll see in the coming races how competitive we will be."


Sergio Perez (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/13/sergio-perez): "This podium is very special because it was not an easy race for me, it was hard and exhausting at times, so I am very happy this evening. It has been a while since I have been up there, I think the last two or three races we should have been on the podium, but we have been so unlucky. I got a good start, I think there was some contact between Fernando and Pierre into turn one so there were three cars, including me, and I thought we weren't going to make it but in the end, it was a good result for me. After that I didn't feel comfortable in the first stint with the car and I lost a lot of ground but then the second stint was all about pushing at the right time and using my experience to get a podium for the Team. Lewis was closing in really fast and at that time I was struggling quite a lot with my tyres, he had good pace and I thought he might get past me but it turned into a good fight and I came out on top. Lewis is a top driver and it was enjoyable racing with him. When I was standing on the podium I saw a lot of Mexican flags in the grandstands, we are so far from home here in Turkey so it was lovely to see. I think there is a lot we can learn from this race, it is a good result for the Team and now we're looking forward to Austin."


Christian Horner: "A double podium for us was a great result to come away with this weekend. Max has regained the lead in the drivers' championship at a track that has traditionally been strong for Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes), we limited the damage and it was a great team job with lots of constructor points, so we'll keep fighting. The lead for the championship keeps changing hands and the rest of the year is going to be incredibly tight, we have some big races coming up and it's good to be putting Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) under pressure. For us the crucial moment today was when to pit Checo, we could have kept him out to keep holding up Lewis, but we decided to pit him because we didn't believe Hamilton's tyres were going to make it to the end of the race. Checo did an amazing job today, he raced Lewis just as hard as Max does. He went wheel to wheel with him and he actually ended up in the pit lane when Lewis ran him out there, and then it was a drag race down the start-finish straight and he just stuck with it. The next race in Austin has been a Hamilton strong hold so we are going to have to be at the very top of our game, it's great to be in this fight and the whole team is really enjoying it."


https://www.pitpass.com/70965/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Red-Bull


Turkish GP: Race team notes - McLaren Lando Norris (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/60/lando-norris): "A very long and tough race today mainly because of the conditions. It was very difficult to keep the Inters in a good window during the race, but I think we achieved everything we could in the end, so I have to be happy with P7. It was damage limitation for us at this track, but we came away with the best result that we could. So, happy with that and we just need to make more improvements for the next one. It's important we recover and keep pushing next time out!"


Daniel Ricciardo (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/15/daniel-ricciardo): "I think we had maybe four laps in the race where we had good pace but the rest was hard. In the beginning we struggled a lot with front grip, so it was really hard to stay close to the others, and then we pitted for a new tyre. After that I didn't have great rear grip to start and was struggling but after a while it came good.

We had probably four good laps in that stint where I could feel like I could really push on the tyre, which was what I was looking for. Of the entire race, that was the positive. I got a bit excited because I thought maybe it will just keep getting better and better, but it lasted four laps and then the rear dropped away again, so the last ten laps were a bit painful, just trying to hang on.


"Obviously, we were fighting for the points and that strategy was our best chance, but it was just really unpredictable. I know others went longer, with one going the entire race on one set, but at the end I saw my tyres and they were on their last legs.

Unfortunately, it wasn't a strong race but we'll try to analyse it. On the positive side, we've got plenty of brisket to eat very soon. That makes me happy, bring on Austin!"


Andreas Seidl, Team Principal: "We leave Istanbul with six more points in our Constructors' Championship battle, after finishing P7 and P13. We achieved everything that was on the table for us today. With the pace we had all weekend and the picture unfortunately also not changing today in wet conditions, there wasn't more we could do together with Lando and Daniel. Thanks to everyone here at the track, back home in the factory, our drivers and our colleagues at Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) HPP. Everyone worked very hard this weekend. On to the next one."


https://www.pitpass.com/70963/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-McLaren


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Aston Martin Lance Stroll (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/57/lance-stroll): "I am happy with today's result and I think we got everything out of the car, so it is a job well done by the team. It was tricky out there because the track was so slippery. There was also the challenge of the circuit drying in some places, which was causing graining of the tyres, and the question mark about a switch to slicks was always there. All things considered, ninth was the maximum we could achieve today. We lost a little bit of time during the pit stop, but I don't think it made much of a difference to our final result. I am excited to head over to the United States next because it is a chance to spend a bit of time at home in Canada before we focus on fighting for points in Austin."


Sebastian Vettel (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/21/sebastian-vettel): "The gamble did not work out today. Something inside me was calling me to try dry tyres because there was nothing left on my Intermediate tyres and I thought the dry tyres might work, even if the track was still damp. But as soon as I left the pits, I knew it was the wrong decision: there was no grip and I could not make them work. It probably cost us a point or two because we ran inside the top 10 until that moment. I was really surprised how slowly the track improved and it was similar to last year because it just did not dry out."


Otmar Szafnauer, CEO & Team Principal: "Lance drove superbly in incredibly tricky conditions, and, despite a slow pit stop, thereby scored two valuable world championship points as a result of his excellent ninth-place finish. Sebastian also started well, and was running in a solid top-10 position for the first half of the race, but he then took a gamble on a change to dry tyres [Mediums] which did not work out - he had no grip at all. The very next lap he consequently had to come back in for new Inters, but by that time his race had been compromised too severely for a points-scoring finish to be a possibility. It was one of those things: a gamble that simply did not pay off, which is how it goes sometimes when conditions are so difficult."


https://www.pitpass.com/70959/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Aston-Martin


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Alpine lpine F1 Team extended its points scoring run to fifteen races in a row after Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) finished tenth in a rain affected Turkish Grand Prix. Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso) finished outside of the points after a first corner collision with Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly) put paid to his promising starting position.


The race started under wet conditions with a constant light drizzle dampening the 5.338km Istanbul Park. Both drivers managed their starts well and Fernando momentarily took fourth position at the exit of Turn 1, before heavy contact from behind by Gasly's Alpha Tauri span his A521 the wrong way and demoted him towards the back of the pack.


Esteban avoided the first corner drama and found himself on the cusp of the top ten positions after the opening exchanges. Following his first corner incident, Fernando attempted to climb back up the order and during his steady ascent, he clipped the rear of Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher)'s Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) going into Turn 4, which he later received a five second time penalty for.


The race then settled into a rhythm with little action. With the track remaining damp, Fernando opted to fit fresh Intermediates on lap 31 and served his time penalty during the pit-stop.


Meanwhile, Esteban continued to apply pressure to those inside the top ten positions and decided to stay out for the entire duration of the 58-lap race. Thanks to his excellent tyre management, Esteban was able to climb into the top ten and despite some late pressure from a charging Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi), managed to hold onto tenth position at the chequered flag by just under a second.


Fernando was stuck in sixteenth for the latter part of the race to end a frustrating day for the two-time World Drivers' Champion.


Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon): "Scoring one point today does feel sweet after a challenging weekend and a very long race. It was good to take a risk today by going to the end on one set of tyres, which you don't see very often. It was also nice to give the guys a break from doing pit-stops for the afternoon! I remember at this race last year the same could have been possible; it was difficult, but the tyres just about lasted and we have a small reward for that in the end. I enjoyed the fights on track out there too, we managed to muscle our way through, which was fun. One point is nice and hopefully we can keep building for the next race."


Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso): "It was very tricky conditions today and very slippery. Unfortunately we had the two collisions, which damaged our race. Pierre [Gasly] was in a sandwich going into the corner and hit the rear of my car. And then I am sorry to Mick [Schumacher] for hitting his car going into Turn 4. I went for the overtake but it was very difficult to see everyone around you in the wet conditions. It was bad luck today and it's a shame we weren't able to capitalise on our excellent starting position.

Nevertheless, as a team we still scored a point today and we'll pick ourselves up for Austin where hopefully our luck changes."


Marcin Budkowski, Executive Director: "Today was a very meagre outcome for the team. Fernando was pushed out by Gasly at Turn 1 and then had another incident with Schumacher. From there his race was heavily compromised. He couldn't find the pace even after the graining phase of the tyres and we have to check if there was any damage to the car from the two earlier contacts. It's a frustrating outcome for him after starting from fifth, especially seeing where Gasly finished the race. On Esteban's side, it was a masterclass in tyre management. He covered the whole race distance on one set of Intermediates to salvage a point, which, starting from twelfth in a race with no attrition, is a pretty decent outcome. Even if we extend our points scoring streak to fifteen races in a row, we lost points in our fight for fifth in the championship. We're now turning our focus on the next race in Austin where we aim to bounce back."


https://www.pitpass.com/70961/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Alpine


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Ferrari Scuderia Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) attacked all race long to bring home 16 points, which is less than it might have been given the potential shown on track. A fourth place for Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) and an eighth for Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) has not changed the order in either championship although the team has significantly closed the gap to McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) in the Constructors' classification.


The track remained wet throughout and for almost two thirds of the race, Charles was third, very close to the leaders, running at a great pace. When the leading pair made their stops, the Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) driver and the team decided to go for the win, extending the stint as much as possible. Once in the lead, the aim was to try and make it all the way to the chequered flag without stopping, but when the intermediate tyre performance collapsed, Charles had to pit which put him back in third place, where he would have been if he had pitted at the same time as the leaders. Graining in the first few laps made him vulnerable to attack from Perez and so a podium that would have been well deserved, slipped from his grasp. Nevertheless, it had been worth trying to go for the bullseye.


For Carlos, the first half of the race was very exciting. Having started from the back row, he pulled off successive overtaking moves to get into the points zone as early as lap 13. However, there was a problem at his pit stop on lap 36, which saw him rejoin behind Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon), whom he had overtaken earlier, the Frenchman still on his original set of Intermediates. In these conditions the used tyre had the advantage so he was not easy to pass, but once Sainz managed it, his pace was excellent and he almost caught up to Norris. The fans also appreciated Carlos' efforts as he was voted "Driver of the Day".


Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc): Overall it was a positive race. We were very competitive, especially in the first stint and the car felt good. We went long on the first set of Inters and once the rest of the field had stopped for the new set, we found ourselves to be quite a bit faster on the used ones. But after just a few laps, the other drivers started to clear the graining they were struggling with and found a lot of performance, so we knew we would have to stop too.


We were a little out of step with the others on my stop that happened late in the race so we never got over the graining phase and couldn't fight back. It's a shame that we lost out on a podium finish, but the performance was there which is a positive.


Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz): This was one of my best races, and probably my strongest with Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)! That first stint in those tricky conditions was very intense but good fun. I overtook at different parts of the track and using all kinds of lines, so I really enjoyed myself.
It was a pity we had a problem during the stop, because the pit stop itself was fast, but we need to analyse why it took so long to release the car. Instead of coming out behind Ocon I would have come out closer to Lando, and during the last ten laps I was one of the fastest on track, so I feel we could have finished the race further up. Anyway, these things can happen and I definitely have a lot of positives to take from today.


I am starting to have a lot of fun with the car and to understand it better and better, so I look forward to the upcoming races and to keep building momentum.


Mattia Binotto, Team Principal: This was a very intense race and it confirmed the good signs that had already emerged in very different dry track conditions on Friday. Istanbul is a very demanding track and we showed we were competitive, at least on this track and that's why we can't be entirely satisfied with the 16 points we picked up today.


Charles had a great weekend, both in qualifying and the race. Together we tried to bring home an even better result and it's a shame that in the end he didn't make it to the podium, as that would have been well deserved. Carlos who came to Turkey with the grid penalty hanging over him, staged a great climb up the order, which took him all the way to eighth place.


We continue to make progress but there's still a lot of work to do to be regularly fighting for the win. We have to be realistic and continue to push to improve in every area. We can approach the remaining six races with confidence, in the knowledge that we have a package that allows us to fight right to the very end for third place in the Constructors' championship, one of our stated aims for this season.

Turkish GP: Race team notes - AlphaTauri Pierre Gasly (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/53/pierre-gasly): "I'm really happy to be back finishing in the top six, I think this is probably one of our best performances this season, particularly in these difficult conditions. To be finishing just 10 seconds from the podium, after a five second penalty, is really good for us. The Turn 1 incident was a bit unfortunate, I was sandwiched between Sergio and Fernando, we touched a little bit but it was just enough to spin Alonso, so I want to say sorry to him. After that though, the pace was really strong, and I'm pleased with the performance of the car this weekend, it feels nice to have been fast straight from Friday again."


Yuki Tsunoda (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/71/yuki-tsunoda): "It's a real shame today, as I think I could've been in a position to finish in the top 10. I used too much tyre early on, battling with Hamilton, and after that it was really hard to keep up the pace. Unfortunately, I then had a spin, and this ruined my whole race. Today was another big learning curve for me, completing so many laps on the Intermediate tyres, but I'm disappointed as I was really hoping to get points to help the team in the championship."


Franz Tost (Team Principal): "We have had quite a successful weekend here in Turkey. Yesterday, we finished Qualifying with both cars in the top 10, so Pierre started today's race in fourth, after Hamilton's penalty, and Yuki in ninth position.

Unfortunately, Pierre had a collision with Alonso at Turn 1, and this resulted in a five second penalty for him, which he had to serve at the first pitstop. However, he managed to keep his sixth position, as Norris was seven seconds behind him. After the pitstop, he drove the sixth place home, doing a fantastic job despite today's difficult conditions.

This was the first time that the drivers have been out on the Inters for this many laps, so no one from the engineering side knew how long the tyres would last for or how well they would work. This is why it was not an easy call to decide when to pit, but I must say that our strategy group did a really good job, particularly with Pierre, who stopped at exactly the right moment. Yuki also had a good start today and spent quite a few laps in eighth position, managing to keep Hamilton behind for a long time, showing a great performance. Later on, he unfortunately spun and went back to 14th position. It was an enormous learning process for him, as he had not driven in the wet that often, so he now understands more about how the Intermediates work and he is more familiar with the car in these conditions. Generally speaking, the team showed a good performance this weekend and we've managed to score more points for our battle for fifth in the Constructors' Championship. We're now looking forward to heading to the United States."

Turkish GP: Race team notes - Alfa Romeo Alfa Romeo (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/15/alfa-romeo) Racing ORLEN produced a strong race at the 2021 Turkish Grand Prix, with Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi) and Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen) just missing out on the points in 11th and 12th after fighting their way from the back of the grid. It was a performance from the team that deserved the reward of points, a result that would have no doubt come had the race been just one lap longer, with both Antonio and Kimi rapidly closing in on a struggling Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon).


Starting in P16 and P17 respectively after a challenging Saturday in which their best laps were cancelled, Antonio and Kimi produced brilliant starts to close the first lap in 12th and 13th - the highlight, a daring move by Kimi around the outside of Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) in turn eight.


The race was fairly uneventful for both drivers, as they extended their stints on intermediate tyres, but in the closing stages, both were able to display good pace to close the gap on Ricciardo, passing the McLaren (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/5/mclaren) with a lap to go and chasing down Ocon - unfortunately not being able to make the move for P10 before the chequered flag.


Frederic Vasseur, Team Principal: "The team had a very strong race, with good pace and both drivers keeping ahead of Ricciardo, Russell, Alonso and others on merit. After yesterday's challenging qualifying, we made a good start with both cars and that set us up for a shot at the points. The conditions out there were not the easiest but both drivers kept their cool and gradually closed in to the top ten: in the end, we were among the fastest cars on track and could pass Ricciardo, but we were just one lap short from catching and passing Ocon for the final point. Finishing in P11 and P12 is always frustrating, we were close to making it two races in the points in a row, but we will take this as an encouragement ahead of Austin."


Kimi Raikkonen (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/17/kimi-raikkonen): "It was a good race, but in the end we didn't get anything out of it. The conditions were ok, very consistent throughout the race and we had some decent pace. Still, it was quite hard to get past anybody until the end, when some were really struggling with their tyres. We went really close to the points but ran out of laps to make it."


Antonio Giovinazzi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/58/antonio-giovinazzi): "We were just one lap away from being in the points, and this is really frustrating. The race wasn't bad, despite starting from the back as a result of yesterday's qualifying, which made everything harder. We gave it our best but unfortunately it wasn't enough - for the smallest margin, just one second. We had good pace in the last couple of races, so let's focus on getting back in the points for the next race in Austin."

Turkish GP: Race team notes - Haas Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team drivers Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin) classified 19th and 20th respectively at Sunday's Turkish Grand Prix, held at Intercity Istanbul Park - Round 16 of the FIA Formula 1 World Championship.


In wet conditions Schumacher took the start from 14th position on Pirelli Cinturato Green intermediates but unfortunately was involved in an early collision with Alpine's Fernando Alonso (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/1/fernando-alonso). Schumacher was tipped into a spin through turn four and dropped to the back of the field. Stewards determined Schumacher was the innocent party and handed down a time sanction on Alonso. Schumacher dropped to the rear of the field and came in on lap 41 of 58 to take on another set of intermediates. He preserved the car through to the checkered flag to classify in 19th place.


Mazepin also started on intermediates, owing to the conditions, and took the green flag from 18th. Mazepin avoided drama to hold position before ceding one spot to Williams (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/11/williams)' Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi). Mazepin cycled through for his pit stop on lap 36, remaining on intermediates, and came home 20th, as every driver reached the checkered flag despite the conditions.


Uralkali Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) F1 Team returns to action at the United States Grand Prix, scheduled for October 22 to 24, at the Circuit of the Americas (https://www.pitpass.com/circuits/4/austin), in Austin, Texas.


Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin): "The race organizers have done an amazing job since last year to improve the conditions for the drivers. From my side, it was pure joy to be here all weekend. I did a clean race out there, stayed out of trouble in the first lap and drove the best I could. Unfortunately, you know the conditions were very weird today in the respect that the track never really dried out. I didn't anticipate that the intermediate tires needed time to get into the slick condition to give us good times. These conditions are priceless because as much as they're difficult to drive in, they're very useful."


Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher): "We knew it was going to be tough and I think because there was no real chaos, the result that we drove today was realistic anyway. Again, we learned a lot, we learned how to be competitive at the race start and we just have to analyze how we do it even better. Overall, it's been a very positive weekend. There's no reason for me to be sad because I'm not in the championship fight, so anything good from this weekend - I'll take it - and anything bad I will leave it behind and learn from it."


Guenther Steiner: "Not the race we wanted to have. After Mick got away pretty good at the start, he lost a couple of positions and then got hit by Alonso, and that put him back where we were and we couldn't get out of that hole. Once we got into blue flags, it's a downwards spiral. We got to the end of the race without issues. Staying out there and learning about the conditions was the only thing we could do and that's what we did today - the cars are back safe and it's again in our book of learning."


https://www.pitpass.com/70957/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Haas


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Williams George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70966/drivers/66/george-russell) finished 15th and Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi) 17th in the Turkish Grand Prix. George started 13th with Nicholas 16th, both on the intermediate tyre.


Both drivers ran a one-stop race, switching to a fresh set of the intermediate tyres, with George pitting on lap 35 and Nicholas lap 34 respectively.


Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance: Today's race was dominated by the track condition, which stayed damp for the duration. Like everyone else, we tried to make the intermediate tyre last until the track was ready for slicks, however, once it became apparent that this wasn't going to happen, we were all faced with the decision of whether or not to fit a new intermediate. As Ocon and Ricciardo demonstrated, pitting early or not at all made little difference to finishing position, with only the fast cars that started out of position really making progress.


George and Nicholas both lost ground in the opening laps, with George losing positions after fighting with Ocon and having Alonso spin in front of him, and Nicholas himself spinning. Both recovered well and showed reasonable pace at times whilst also managing the tyres.


The season continues in two weeks in Austin and we are looking forward to getting back to Texas for the first time since 2019.


George Russell (https://www.pitpass.com/70966/drivers/66/george-russell): It was definitely not an easy race today. The first 10 laps or so felt pretty good but as the intermediate tyre started to wear down on the dry line it became increasingly difficult. The conditions were quite unique as, even though that dry line was appearing, because of the cloud cover and the temperature it wasn't close to switching over to the slicks. We can definitely learn something from today though as, even though we didn't quite have the pace we would have hoped for, it was very difficult for everybody to manage.


Nicholas Latifi (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/62/nicholas-latifi): My race came undone by spinning on the opening lap and from then on, I was too far back to try and recover the ground I had lost. I also lost quite a lot of time trying to pass the two Haas (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/12/haas) cars of Mick Schumacher (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/69/mick-schumacher) and Nikita Mazepin (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/70/nikita-mazepin). However, it was my first full Grand Prix in the wet and that was a good experience. Obviously, it was not the result we wanted but our pace was good at times. I tried to make up the time I had lost but in conditions like these you have to be very reserved with how you push. That's part of the learning so there are still positives to take from today, but it is frustrating as you still want a positive outcome.


https://www.pitpass.com/70966/Turkish-GP-Race-team-notes-Williams


Turkish GP: Race team notes - Pirelli Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Valtteri Bottas (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/3/valtteri-bottas) won the Turkish Grand Prix from first on the grid, using a one-stop strategy with two sets of Cinturato Green Intermediates. The same strategy was adopted by nearly all the drivers. Bottas then took the lead from Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari) driver Charles Leclerc (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/61/charles-leclerc) with 11 laps to go, with Leclerc having stayed out much longer on his original set of starting intermediates.


Many drivers undertook very long opening stints on the intermediate tyres, with the track featuring a range of wet and damp conditions from start to finish. Mercedes (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/7/mercedes) driver Lewis Hamilton (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/9/lewis-hamilton) stopped after 50 laps for a second set of intermediates, eventually finishing fifth from 11th on the grid following a grid penalty (having set the fastest time in qualifying). Alpine's Esteban Ocon (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/54/esteban-ocon) did not stop at all for a tyre change, finishing the race in 10th on just one set of intermediates.


Ferrari (https://www.pitpass.com/teams/2/ferrari)'s Carlos Sainz (https://www.pitpass.com/drivers/47/carlos-sainz) made up 11 places with two stints on the intermediates, coming from 19th on the grid (after an engine change penalty) to eighth at the finish. The Spaniard was voted driver of the day.


Conditions were cool with intermittent rain throughout the race, finishing with 17 degrees centigrade ambient and 19 degrees on track.


Mario Isola: "Following wet conditions in Saturday's free practice, we had wet weather from start to finish of the grand prix today. However, this was never heavy rain that required the full wets: instead it was perfect territory for the intermediates, which showed themselves to be very well-suited to a wide range of changing wet conditions.

The drivers who changed their tyres in the final stages of the race found a slightly drier track, leading to a bit more graining. Those stopping earlier were able to limit graining on a wetter track, and this was a key advantage in the intermittent rain conditions.

Bottas ran the perfect strategy under the demanding circumstances: a one-stopper with two runs on the intermediates. Many other drivers delayed their pit stop: also because it wasn't clear to what extent the track would dry out before the end of the race, perhaps even allowing a final run on the slicks. Going for the whole race on the intermediates though was not what we would advise, and in fact we alerted some teams to the potential risk of doing that. Nonetheless, the performance of the intermediates was very strong here, without a single driver retiring despite the slippery conditions over all 58 laps."
