Quotes of drivers about track:

  • Shane van Gisbergen: “What a crazy track. Itโ€™s really cool. Itโ€™s going to be hard work, 250km, limited passing… itโ€™s going to be all about qualifying.”
  • Scott McLaughlin: “It’s full on […] Itโ€™s so technical. Youโ€™ve got to try and work out one corner, youโ€™re sacrificing one corner to help you regain in three corners time. Itโ€™s really bumpy too in places. It has everything a driver wants.โ€
