STC SAUDI ARABIAN GRAND PRIX
Jeddah Corniche Circuit
17-19 March 2023


Guenther Steiner – Team Principal




Several days removed from the opening round in Bahrain – what are your reflections on the race weekend as a whole and specifically the performance of the VF-23?



“It was quite challenging because we had pre-season testing and then there was very little time before the race. All in all, even if we had struggles in the race, qualifying was good. We got one car into Q3 and for Nico to come back after three years of not having a full-time drive, it was a very good result for the team. We could’ve done better than tenth, but we were happy with it.


In the race it didn’t start too well, for Nico it wasn’t an ideal start knocking off the front wing endplate, and Kevin was the only one on the hard tire to start which put him in difficulties.


All in all though, I think the performance is there in the VF-23, we just need to get it out permanently at all the races – so I’m really looking forward to those races.”





Looking at the Bahrain Grand Prix as a whole, what stood out for you across the field and was there any element of surprise to other cars in race-trim from what you’d initially observed in testing?




“Like everyone, we were surprised by the positive performance of Aston Martin and Alonso. I think they’ve done a very good job over the winter with their car and now they’re tipped to be on top this year. During the race they had very good race pace with Red Bull, and those two cars stand out in the field at the moment.”




The driver pairing of Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen feels like a familiar partnership already – was this echoed in what you saw of them working together across testing and the first race in Bahrain? What elements did you see Nico bringing to the table at the likes of session debriefs etc?




“They’re working well together and there is respect between them. It’s very good for Kevin to have a teammate with experience and what Nico brings with him is experience.


The race engineers clearly feel like they get a lot of information from him after each session, which will bring the race weekend forward, but also overall the race team forward, performance-wise.”





Next up we head to the Jeddah Corniche Circuit for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. What are the key learnings from Bahrain that will be applied across the weekend in Saudi Arabia?




“Jeddah is a little bit different in terms of layout compared to Bahrain but everything that we learned in Bahrain will help us set-up the car better for Saudi Arabia. Hopefully we get it in a good window and then we can extract the full potential of the VF-23, resulting in points.”
