Monteiro looks forward to Turkey
23 August 2006 – Tiago Monteiro has busied himself in the summer break with a street demonstration in Rotterdam. Together with his team mate Christijan Albers the Portuguese Midland driver show the Dutch fans how to play with an F1 car. But now it is back to work. Monteiro is looking forward to the track near Istanbul.
Monteiro said: "Istanbul levels the playing field a bit between all the drivers in Formula 1, because it's still relatively new. It's a fantastic circuit - definitely my kind of track - and the only place where I have as much experience as any of the older drivers. I had a reasonable race here last year and enjoy the city, as well, so I'm looking forward to a good weekend."
Speaking about the past three weeks Monteiro said: "I've had a good break since Hungary, and taking part in the street demonstration in Rotterdam was a fantastic way to gear back up for racing. The team has been busy working on developments to the car, so I am keen to get back on the track and see what we can do."
