Q: In Turkey, you spent one of your strongest weekends in Formula 1. How do you assess it?
Alex Elbon: Nice weekend for me. We tried a lot on my car, which made it more predictable. The team also looked strong enough, especially at the beginning of the weekend. It is a pity that the result was not very high, but there were a lot of positive things at the Turkish stage.
Q: How fun or challenging is it to fly a car in poor conditions and with limited visibility?
Alex ElbonA: It was great to have a different experience, but it’s easy to make a mistake in such difficult conditions. I had to adapt to the situation, find limits and experiment with different trajectories, but it was fun.
Q: The RB16 car has become more comfortable to drive, and you know the track in Bahrain very well. How much are you looking forward to the next race?
Alex ElbonA: We had a really big weekend in Turkey and I am sure we are moving in the right direction. From my side, the situation is changing for the better, and I am satisfied with the work of the car on the simulator. Now I am looking forward to coming to Bahrain to see what results we can achieve.
