Haug: Results are satisfying as build-up to 2012
1 November 2011 – Norbert Haug, while admitting that a result such as fifth and sixth places in the Indian Grand Prix is by no means the target for Mercedes GP, does add that the improved form is promising as the Brackley-based team looks on to next season.
“A strong result for our team, considering the possibilities that our technical package currently has,” Haug, Mercedes’ Vice President for Motorsport, said of Sunday’s Indian Grand Prix. “It is satisfying for everybody to extract the maximum and to achieve the best possible result. Our lap times looked consistent throughout the race, which shows that we handled the tyres well and found a setup which suited the track.”
The German now focuses on Round 18 of 19:
Last year at Yas Marina, Rosberg came home in a respectable fourth position although Schumacher was involved in a scary first-lap crash with Vitantonio Liuzzi.
