Monteiro looking forward to the atmosphere
26 July 2006 – MF1 Racing driver Tiago Monteiro is already looking forward to the German Grand Prix. The Portuguese driver is always enjoy the fabulous atmosphere in the stadion section at the Hockenheim track.
Speaking about the upcoming race Monteiro said: "I'm looking forward to Hockenheim, as I like the atmosphere at the circuit. It's probably the best in the world, especially for the spectators in the stadium section. Even as a driver, you can't escape the enthusiasm and I'm hoping there will be plenty of fans there, even if most of them will be cheering for a certain German driver!"
"It's likely to be a very hot race that will be tough on tyres and drivers, especially if we reach the temperatures we had in Magny-Cours again. We've been working hard with Bridgestone and I'm feeling confident about our tyres for this weekend. We had a positive test at Jerez last week and worked on a number of updates, especially with the suspension. We also ran a major tyre programme in preparation for the next three races and found some good aero improvements, which will hopefully help us continue to close the gap to the cars ahead."
