Nico Thursday press conference in Bahrain

Nico Thursday press conference in Bahrain

Four days after his maiden victory in China, Nico took part in Thursday’s official press conference. Here are some edited highlights…

On the Bahrain track and having only 4 days to enjoy his first win…

“This is a track I really enjoy, I’ve had some very good memories here but again it’s just difficult to know where we’re going to be exactly. In Shanghai of course we did very well but previously we did have a few issues in the races, so it’s possible it’s going to be a bit more difficult here.”

On the tyre situation and setup…

“The engineers and everybody have really been making some good progress on the car, setup-wise and things like that. So we’re learning very quickly, so it wasn’t a coincidence that we were fast in Shanghai. No, we did a good job and got the best out of it – but the situation could be different here with the temperatures and that might prove a little bit more of a challenge but I don’t know.”

On his preparation prior to the Grand Prix…

“We have been preparing to the best of my possibilities and the team’s also.”

On his getting back in the cockpit after his first win…

“Niki Lauda said right after the race, ‘Nico, believe me, the first win is by the far the most difficult and after that it becomes much easier.’ So I’ll go for that, he should know."

On his dominant weekend in China…

“Everything came together. I was on top of my game for the weekend in qualifying and the race, but also the set-up – the car was working very well still, I think, in qualifying. Even in Shanghai, we were stronger eventually in the race but of course it was enough to win by some margin. All in all, it was a really strong weekend."
