2005 TURKISH GRAND PRIX - comments and race

Notapor Invitado » Vie Ago 19, 2005 3:49 am

Welcome to round 14 of the FIA Formula One World Championship and the
series' first ever visit to Turkey and the Istanbul Park circuit - another
Hermann-Tilke designed masterpiece, but one that promises to be very
different from his other famous tracks. It is not just the venue that is new
this weekend - Italian driver Enrico Toccacelo will be making his Grand Prix
debut as Minardi's third man in Friday practice...

THE FRIDAY PREVIEW - POSITIVE FIRST IMPRESSIONS

No race car has turned a wheel here yet, but already Herman Tilke's Istanbul
Park has proved a big hit with the drivers thanks to the varied character of
its format.

"I'm impressed with the circuit, not only the facilities here in the paddock
I also think the track is a little bit different compared to all the new
circuits we have seen the in last three or four years, Bahrain or China,"
series leader Fernando Alonso said. "I think to go up and down is the most
interesting thing from a driver's point of view because we really enjoy the
lap, like Spa or some of the other circuits."

"I was really impressed," thought new Ferrari signing Felipe Massa, after
borrowing Christian Klien's supermoto bike and doing a lap. "I think it is a
very complete circuit, you can find everything: quick corners, slow corners,
change of directions, heavy braking and everything. I think we can see some
overtaking in the race, so I think it is a fantastic circuit, just looking
like that. Tomorrow we will have some better idea, but I was really
impressed and I think they did a really good job."

Rubens Barrichello, officially confirmed this week as leaving Ferrari for
BAR next year, agreed: "Since I came into the track I saw great facilities.
It is difficult to know the circuit before we actually get to see the grip
level because it is so wide you can take so many lines into the corners, so
it is going to be good to get going tomorrow. I walked it; I haven't done
the last bit, but up to there is was quite nice. I have a feeling that the
first corner is going to be one where you always tell yourself you can brake
later and later because the braking point is still quite plain and then it
starts to go down and there will be times when you will just overdo it and
there are times when you will tell yourself you could have done more. So it
is quite interesting because you don't see the turning point of the corner
and I think there are some facilities to overtake as well."

As far as the racing is concerned Alonso admitted that he was disappointed
not to add to his points score in Hungary, where his game plan after the
first-lap brush with Ralf Schumacher was to do enough to get a decent
qualifying start position here. "I think it is good that nobody knows this
circuit. Normally we are quick on the hot tracks. We saw that in Malaysia
and Bahrain. I think all these new types of circuit, with high temperatures,
is not bad news for our car so I'm really confident to have a good race
here. The qualifying position will not be great for me and Giancarlo, but I
also think Rubens and Juan Pablo (Montoya) will not be in a much different
position compared to us, so we have to be really concentrated this weekend.
We need a good result."
