• IN WORDS: We Can Really Go for Broke - Toto

Toto talks F1 finales and Championship celebrations

'We all cherished that moment'

Last week's Championship celebrations are still fresh in the memory, but there's still one more race to go in the 2018 Formula One season...

"The celebrations in Brixworth and Brackley last week were a very humbling experience," Toto explained.

"Claiming the fifth consecutive double Championship - an experience that only very few people in the sport have had before - felt amazing and we all cherished that moment.

"At the same time, everyone is extremely keen to continue to raise the bar together and be even stronger in 2019.

"For now, we have one race to go in 2018 and we want to put on a great show for the fans who supported us through the season, be it at the track, in front of their TV or on social media.

"The Championship pressure is off, so we can look at this as one race where we can really go for broke."

'We all want to add one more'

The Yas Marina Circuit has been a happy hunting ground for us in the past and we're determined to add another victory to the W09's tally, but we know it won't be easy.

"Our Silver Arrow has won 10 races so far this season and we all want to add one more to that score - especially Valtteri, who has lost out on wins this season through bad luck and team orders," Toto added.

"We know, too, that it will be a tough battle because both Red Bull and Ferrari will have the same target of taking good momentum into the winter.

"We have taken four wins in a row at Yas Marina, although it's a track with a lot of slow and medium speed corners.

"We've made some good steps forward when it comes to our car's performance on similar tracks, so we're confident that we can perform strongly in Abu Dhabi as well, and end this incredible 2018 season on a high."
