DAMS driver, Ayumu Iwasa spoke to the media ahead of the Saudi Arabian round and is ready to race in Jeddah this weekend.
“It’s a very hard and tricky track. Also it’s not easy to overtake even though there are a few long straights. I think it’s completely different to Bahrain.”
“Most important, that’s Sector 1 for sure because Sector 1 has many corners. The approach to Sector 1 is very important in Qualifying.”
“Here, the most important thing is just to push hard and trust myself. The first round didn’t go well, but I saw some improvement on my side and the team. So now we need to focus on this weekend and do our job as much as we can. And I’ll enjoy the weekend as well.”
Due to Jeddah being a very narrow street circuit, Qualifying will be crucial for the drivers this weekend. Despite overtaking being difficult around this track, Formula 2 proved last year that an exciting race is possible and staying out of the walls and out of trouble could be enough for a great weekend.
