"We have two races to go in the 2019 season and we want to end this season on a high. The next stop takes us to Brazil which brings back fond memories from last year when we were not only able to win the race but also secure the Constructors' Championship at Interlagos.
"It's a very short track which makes Qualifying particularly challenging as the margins are very small.
"We have generally not had the fastest car on Saturdays since the summer break, but we were able to take pole in Austin and will try to fight for a front row start again at São Paulo.
"Brazil will also be the first race since 2013 that I won't attend. With both Championships secured, it gives me more time in Europe to focus on other open topics.
