Q. Fernando, after a disappointing race in Japan, how is the mood of the team ahead of the Brazilian Grand Prix?
FA: Although we didn't get the maximum from the race in Japan, the mood in the team is still very positive. We know that the car is quick, but we were just unlucky in qualifying, which was a shame as I think I could have scored some points if I had started the race in a better position. We know that we have a very tough battle in the championship against Williams and BMW and so any points I can score in the final two races will be very important.
Q. What memories do you have of racing in Brazil?
FA: Interlagos is a circuit that will always be very special to me because I won both my world titles with Renault there. It's one of the most enjoyable races of the year because the fans are so passionate about Formula 1 and there is an amazing atmosphere all weekend.
Q. Talk us through the challenge of racing at Interlagos...
FA: The track surface is usually very bumpy so you need a car that can ride the bumps. As the circuit is anti-clockwise, it's more demanding for the drivers because there are several long left hand corners, which put high g-forces on your neck. To find the right set-up is not easy as there are quick corners, slow corners and a very long straight. The secret of a good lap-time is to have an efficient aero package and a car with good mechanical grip for the middle section of the lap.
Q. Romain, after five races, how are you finding life in Formula 1?
RG: I'm just as happy as I was when I made my debut in Valencia in August. Being a Formula 1 driver has always been my dream and each time I get in the car still feels very special. Interlagos will be another new experience - are you looking forward to it?
Yes, I'm really excited about racing in Brazil and I don't want the season to end. Interlagos is probably not the easiest circuit, but it's a famous track and driving there will be a great experience for me.
Q. How do you prepare for a new circuit?
RG: There are two aspects to my preparation for Brazil. Firstly, because Interlagos is anti-clockwise, I have done lots of training, especially on my neck, to prepare for the physical demands of the track. Also, as I have never driven there before, I have been watching lots of videos to learn the circuit layout. I plan to arrive in Sao Paulo at the start of the week so I can walk the track and experience it for myself.
Q. What are your aims for the weekend?
RG: My objectives are to continue learning about Formula 1 and to gain experience so that I can improve and be as close to Fernando as possible. Hopefully I can have a trouble-free race, the car will be competitive, and I can score some points for the team.
