German GP - FIA Press Conference

The German Grand Prix weekend at Hockenheim gets underway today with the first practice session at 9am. As I type, it's hammering down with rain at the circuit and both cars have been out for their installation laps. The press commitments started early with Adrian Sutil as one of the four German racers involved attended the FIA Press Conference. Here's the edited highlights.

As you could well appreciate Mr Michael Schumacher was given the bulk of the interview but this is what Adrian had to say about his home race and the strength of his team. 

Q: For four of you it’s your home race. Just a quick word on what it means to you. Your hopes and expectations. How much you enjoy it or maybe you don’t enjoy it

It is very nice to be here. I like this circuit and it is a home grand prix, so for a German driver it is something special. I want to perform well. I like it. A lot of people come here, a lot of guests, a few people from my  family as well, so it’s nice. I will enjoy it definitely.

Q: Adrian, what is affecting Force India at the moment? It seems to be very much up and down. Sometimes you qualify and race really well and other times it doesn’t go so well. 

I don’t think it is up and down to be honest. I am very consistent in the points and I think the only driver who has scored points in every race since Barcelona, so it is a very consistent team and good performance of the car.
Sometimes it is very close to go into Q3, sometimes it is enough but it is just a very close competition to go into Q3. Williams did a little upgrade on their cars and they are much stronger. Also Sauber did a good step forward. We are not struggling, no.
We have to optimise everything a little bit better. We lost out in qualifying in the last two races in my opinion as we could not use our tyres in the best way. But there are all reasons behind that and everything is going well and we should be able here to get another good result, another good points’ finish. The car is strong enough.
