Mirco Schultis, Race Driver #31: “I am looking forward to racing in Bahrain and I was already racing at this circuit when it was opened in 2004. We had a good race at the round in Sao Paulo and I felt more comfortable in the car.

We could set steady lap times and improve continuously. It will be special atmosphere in Bahrain when the sun sets during the race. I hope that we can have another good weekend and I am looking forward to driving in the desert.”

James Rossiter, Race Driver #32: “We are coming to Bahrain with a positive feeling. In Brazil, we showed a strong race performance and could prove that we can fight for the podium.

Racing in the desert will be special: the race starts in the afternoon and finishes at night. I am looking forward to it and I hope that we can show another good performance. We have the pace and our aim is to finish on the podium.”
