Not long to wait to be on track again

May 24, 2011

I got back home to Monaco on Monday morning, after a very disappointing weekend at the Spanish Grand Prix. We had hoped to do much better than this in performance terms and also I suffered our first technical failure of the season. We had expected our main rivals to be strong in Barcelona, given the fact our car is not quite as efficient as theirs in terms of aerodynamic downforce. However, what we had not expected was to suffer so much on the new Hard compound tyre that Pirelli had introduced for this race. We had already found life difficult on the original version of the Hard and we had seen that we struggled a bit more than the others on these. Then with these new hards we discovered we were having an even tougher time to get them to work properly and I would say we lost two or two and a half seconds when compared to our lap times on the Soft. You could see the effect clearly in the race. Myself and Fernando were both able to fight at first with him doing better than me as he was actually at the front thanks to his start, while I was fighting with the Mercedes guys, passing them to move up to sixth. But after that, once I fitted the hard tyres, it was almost impossible to drive the car. I ended up losing all the places I had gained, then I had a spin and eventually with a few laps to go, I had to park the car at the side of the track as I could not select any gears. Meanwhile Fernando went from leading the race to being one lap down within the space of about 40 laps which is an unbelievable situation. I would say that in Spain, it looked as though Red Bull and McLaren were the only teams able to exploit the hard tyres properly.

在西班牙度过了一个非常失望的周末之后,我星期一早上回到了摩纳哥的家中。我们原本预期可以表现的很好但是我遭到了本赛季的第一次技术故障。预料之中,红牛和麦克拉伦在西班牙依然很强势,我们赛车的下压力依然远远不如他们。但是倍耐力本站带来的新的硬胎给我们带来的困难,是我们没有想到的。原来的硬胎我们就一点也不适应,和其他车队相比,我们显得更加挣扎。而这次新的硬胎,我们发现要让他们达到理想的工作温度是一件很困难的事,硬胎一圈要比软胎慢上2s或者2.5s。在比赛中你们可以很清楚的看到这个问题。比赛开始时,我和费尔南多都有竞争的实力,费尔南多良好的起步让他一度领跑比赛,而我也轻松超过罗斯伯格和舒米,上升到第六。换上硬胎后,要很好的操控赛车很困难。我开始渐渐丢失我的位置,在比赛还剩下几圈的时候,我滑出了赛道,很遗憾我挂不了档,不得不退赛。与此同时,费尔南多在比赛还剩四十圈得时候从第一一路跌至落后一圈。整个周末,只有红牛和麦克拉伦非常适应新的硬胎。

Staying on the subject of tyres, starting with free practice this Thursday at Monaco, we begin a run of three Grands Prix using Pirelli’s Soft and Super Soft and that should work better for us. They will definitely suit the characteristics of our car which is a positive factor. We have seen this year that the biggest factor when it comes to passing another car is the tyres and we will have overtaking this year, even in Monaco,  because of that. When a car in front of you is struggling with worn tyres, it will have very poor traction and even in places such as the exit to the chicane after the tunnel, if you don’t have traction, you will lose position before Tabac. I believe degradation will play a significant role on this track.

继续关于轮胎的话题,从本周四在摩纳哥的一练开始,我们开始要连续三站比赛使用倍耐力提供的软胎和超软胎。这对我们来讲是一个好消
