After the Japanese Grand Prix, Tiago Monteiro heads directly to Sao Paolo, Brazil, to prepare for the final round of the 2006 FIA Formula One World Championship.
Monteiro comments, "I can hardly believe that it's already the last race of the season already. This year has just flown past. I'm looking forward to the Brazilian weekend as we had a positive performance in Japan and I'm determined to finish the season on a high in front of my fans, my sponsors and Brazilian followers."
"I really like the Interlago circuit and am physically well-prepared for the challenge of the traditionally bumpy track. It's also one of just three circuits we race on that runs in an anti-clockwise direction after Imola and Istanbul. The circuit is really challenging with altitude change and the combination of two straights with a section of slow, technical corners in the infield. It should suit our Spyker MF1 car very well."
"We'll have to keep an eye on the very changeable weather conditions which have in the past played an important role in the outcome and been responsible for some very exciting races. Last year, a mechanical problem prevented me from finishing the race. I hope that won't be the case again and I'll be doing everything to make sure we get into the second qualifying knock out session so we have a good grid position for the race."
