Looking ahead, these last two races have been run on cool days and there’s a view, which you may or may not agree with, that tyre temp struggles have been Brawn’s undoing. How do you think things will pan out when you now go to a traditionally hot race? We’re as fascinated as everyone else, really! There has been a little trend there but, equally, there have been situations where that trend has been bucked – Sebastian’s pace was quick in Bahrain, where track temp was over 50 degrees. But in Turkey, Jenson killed us. We had different aero bits on the car there, which we’ve understood the relationship with the tyre a bit better since. Both Sebastian and I are asking for the same thing from the car, which is absolutely king, because that means we’re pushing one car in terms of development. We’re keen to see how Hungary goes – we’re definitely stronger now in aero terms than we were at Monaco in that slow-speed sitiuation. For sure, the weekend was a very poor one for Brawn – the car wasn’t working on the tyres at all – so we expect them to be much quicker at other venues. Hopefully, we still have an advantage … and that’s what we’re really excited about. Any celebrations yet?
