“So I don’t know if I’ll be doing him any favours in the sense of giving him a win, I don’t think he needs that I think he thinks he can do it himself.

“All I can do is try and make sure I’m supportive throughout the process and the weekend. I’m always really open with my set-up, so I’ll continue to do so.

“It would be great for Valtteri to finish on a strong note, feel better in the car and finish off strong,”

“I think last year he finished off strong and that really set him up for the beginning of this year, which I think he started off strong again, so that is always naturally a good thing.” he added.
