2011 Italian Grand Prix
Jarno Trulli says he will be able to use Lotus’s new power steering again in Monza.
The upgrade, which Trulli used for the first time in Hungary, was taken off the car in Belgium as it wasn’t powerful enough. However Trulli will be able to use it for next weekend’s race in Italy.
Trulli said: “The car felt really good in Spa, and I know we have the revised power steering system I used in Hungary back for this race, so I think we’ll be ok.
“We had very strong race pace in Belgium, and if we can carry on like that in Italy we’ll be just fine.”
Team principal Tony Fernandes said the team don’t expect to be challenging the midfield at the power circuit:
“This weekend we are not going to be challenging the teams ahead quite yet in outright pace, but clever use of strategy and very strong drives from both Heikki and Jarno gives us a chance to hold our own in the race, so the target for Monza has to be to maintain the reliability record established in Spa and look for another two car finish at the chequered flag, as high as we can reasonably hope.”
