Thursday press conference – Malaysian GP – Pt.2

We have a couple of rookies here and normally you have reached the first level to the biggest category, but probably there are some big secret wishes which you don't talk about. Would you maybe reveal your secret wish to this audience?

Jules Bianchi:
I don't think there are many secrets in F1. You just need to work out a lot and be ready for that. I don't see any secrets.

Giedo van der Garde:
I think it's a dream come true [to drive in F1]. You have worked all your life to get here and it's great to be here but to be honest, if you're in the back, some things are different: blue flags, the start is different again, the procedures with the steering wheel. There's a lot of stuff which is quite different to GP2 but I'm enjoying it. The team is letting me learn a lot and I'm making it step by step.

Esteban, you've made it to F1 but does the journey really begin here?

Esteban Gutierrez:
I think that I try to take a very natural approach, try to see every race as one more race, as if it was back in Formula BMW in 2007... it doesn't really make a difference because that helps me to keep the focus on the most important things. Now, for me, the dream is not only to be in F1, the dream is to be successful in F1 and I want to work my way step-by-step to try to achieve it.
