Taking It Step by Step in Australia

Excited to be back in Melbourne

We saw encouraging steps forward at the last round in Saudi Arabia, but we still have a long way to go. As the Team heads to Australia for round three of the 2023 Formula One season, we're taking things one step at a time and pushing to get the most from every opportunity.

"The progress we saw in Saudi Arabia was encouraging. We maximised the package we had and scored some solid points," said Toto.

"More importantly, we continued to learn and understand more about the W14 and our development direction. Everyone back at base has been hard at work to turn these learnings into performance.

"The signs we are seeing back at the factory are promising. We have got to take it step by step, though, and won't get carried away until we see performance translated into lap time on track.

"The competitive order behind Red Bull is tight, with small margins having a big effect on points scored. There remains a significant gap to the front and that is ultimately what we are interested in closing.

"We are looking forward to Australia. It's a country serious about its motorsport with a great racing tradition, and the fans are super passionate. Albert Park is a circuit with unique characteristics, which we will have to work hard to adapt to with the W14.

"As always, we will look to maximise the car we have, and score as many points as our potential currently allows. We are not where we want to be - but that won't stop us from racing hard and giving it everything we've got."
