• Excited to Take on the Challenge - Toto

Toto looks ahead to Round 8 of the 2020 Formula One season, the Italian Grand Prix at Monza!

"Spa had not been our strongest track in recent years, so it felt very good to turn that around this year and leave Belgium with a 1-2," said Toto.

"A few weeks ago, I was trackside in Silverstone to watch our cars go through Maggotts and Becketts; last weekend in Spa, I was watching the onboard of it going through Malmedy and Pouhon.

"Seeing the W11 driven in anger, attacking the circuit with everything it's got, is truly impressive and shows how colossal effort from everyone in Brackley and Brixworth has created a mighty machine.

"The second and third races of this triple-header take us to Italy, with stops in Monza and Mugello.

"The famous 'Temple of Speed' is a real low-drag, low-downforce circuit where straight-line speed is crucial for a good result.

"The race was often won from pole in the past, which makes qualifying particularly important in Italy.

"Both the power sensitivity and the importance of qualifying make Monza a perfect track to test the impact of a new Technical Directive which comes into effect at the Italian Grand Prix.

"TD/037-20 limits the usage of engine modes, requiring teams to run the same ICE mode in qualifying and the race.

"It will be intriguing to see how it affects the absolute and relative competitive order on Saturday and Sunday; we're excited to take on the challenge and turn it to our advantage."
