Friday press conference - Japanese GP - Pt.1

First of all it's still open and we're working in our wind tunnel. As you know we are using another facility and in the next couple of weeks we will define what is the problem to be more specific than that, in order to see what's really the time we have to spend by shutting it down and trying to improve the things that are not at the maximum level at the moment.

Q:
Ross, obviously new driver, what sort of promises did you make to him? Obviously all drivers want a winning car, what sort of promises did you have to make in terms of your team, the team which will be building next year's car?

Ross Brawn:
I'm not sure you'd describe them as promises but we set out the path that the team is on, what we're trying to do, the people we have in place to try and achieve that, the facilities we've built up over the last couple of years and, as you do with any driver, you present that vision and the objectives you have for the next few years and that's what we did.

Q:
What sort of pressure are you under from a driver like Lewis, but also from the board as well?

Ross Brawn:
I think all of us here are under substantial pressure but a lot of it is pressure you generate yourself because you want to take part in a very competitive sport. I think none of us have handcuffs holding us to this business, we do it because we enjoy it and it's our ambition to succeed in this business, so there is pressure at every level. There's pressure at John's [Booth] level, he's trying to achieve tenth place, a massive task; we're trying to go forward. Most of that pressure for me personally is the pressure from within, not the pressure from a driver or the pressure from a board.
