Alex Margaritis – Triple H Team Hegersport

This is the first time I have raced at Silverstone and so I can't give any impressions about the old track or make comparisons with the new one.

What I can say is that I do like the new circuit.
There are lots of fast left handers and long braking points that encourage drivers to attack and overtake. This will help make things more exciting.

As for qualifying, I was pleased with my fast lap in Q1. We worked hard on the set up to try not to use up the tyres too much; this will be important in the race. It is a shame that we were not faster during qualifying and claim a better starting spot on the grid. Still, I think we should do well and have a chance of coming in the top six.

Everyone has seen the changes some teams have made to the air restrictors and ballast. I think that the FIA will intervene to make further modifications. As things stand, we are in good position and we are optimistic about our chances.
