Sutil: We've got a big battle on our hands

“Of course we were disappointed by the Japanese event,” confessed the Kingfisher Airlines billionaire. “We didn't make the most of qualifying and we had a double retirement in the race. We've got some work to do to maintain our advantage in the constructors' championship, but I am confident in our own reserves, our drivers and our ability to maintain it until the finish.

“To this end, we've put a lot of effort into the Korean Grand Prix. We've got some changes to the front wing and a small mechanical update that we didn't use at Suzuka because of the weather. We are also looking at introducing some new aero tweaks to strengthen performance, but of course we want to make sure any effort is targeted and will give a genuine improvement.

“It's going to be a very interesting event for us as a team. It's a new track and a new country that very few people in the team have been to before, so it will be a big challenge for us to address. We've tried to gather us much information on both the facility and the area in advance to make it as smooth as possible.

“For myself, I'm very excited about the prospect of another race in Asia, and particularly a race in this market. There is a large amount of industry and potential worldwide business to come from an Asian tiger such as South Korea, which has the fourth-largest economy in Asia and the second-largest metropolitan city in the world in Seoul. It's got a lot to offer F1 and I hope we can, in-turn, bring a lot to the region as well.”
