SÃO PAULO (lento, mas OK) – Peço perdão aos leitores pela lerdeza do tradutor malaio, mas por outro lado creio que devemos dar um crédito a ele. Notei que em alguns casos seu poder de síntese foi bastante razoável, e a preocupação com aspectos técnicos é elogiável, assim como seu amplo conhecimento musical e a capacidade de desvendar a alma humana sem preconceitos.
Pela primeira vez, estamos publicando uma foto do tradutor contratado. Ele é um desses aí, de verde. Pelo que me disse, os demais da equipe ajudaram-no da difícil tarefa. “Mas a supervisão e a versão final foram minhas”, garantiu.
ALONSO, FERRARI – “I touched with Vettel: it was a surprise to find him there, almost stopped and I don’t know what speed he was doing. Despite the fact the car was damaged, it didn’t seem to be too bad and we decided to keep going. It was certainly a shame, when you think how many off-track excursions there were in Australia. Now we are already focusing on China and Bahrain, so that we arrive in Europe with as many points as possible.” TECLA SAP – “Eu toquei Vettel: foi uma surpresa encontrá-lo, e quase parei porque não sabia que velocidade ele gostava mais. Despistamos todo mundo e ele disse que não estava ruim e a gente decidiu continuar. Foi pena [que acabou rápido], ainda mais quando me lembro das nossas excursões na Austrália. Agora espero vê-lo de novo na China e no Bahrein, e quando a gente chegar na Europa vou tocá-lo em todos os pontos possíveis.”
MASSA, FERRARI – “Today’s race was really complicated, on a track that was very damp at some points and completely dry at others. I can’t say I’m satisfied, but I am happy to bring home a good points haul.” TECLA SAP – “Essa raça é muito complicada, tem um treco que fica muito úmido em alguns pontos e completamente seco em outros. Não posso dizer que fiquei satisfeito, mas fiquei feliz de levar para casa os últimos discos do Raul.”
SUTIL, FORCE INDIA – “An early end to a race that promised so much for us. Both cars had the same problem with the wheel nuts and it cost us a lot of time in the pits.” TECLA SAP – “Prometeram um monte pra nós, mas os bostas dos caras tiveram problemas com as notas [falsas] e o custo disso foi que o time recebeu um lote de pitos.”
BIANCHI, MARUSSIA – “It was not an easy day though as we made life more difficult with a not so good start and opening lap and this really hurt the first part of my race. The lap time was really coming towards the end of the first stint but I was stuck and unable to do much with it.” TECLA SAP – “Não foi um dia fácil, a vida é difícil, mesmo quando começa bem. Abrir um boteco na Lapa foi realmente algo que me machucou. Aqueles tempos da Lapa chegaram ao fim quando o estuque começou a cair e eu não pude fazer nada contra isso.”
KALTENBORN, SAUBER – “We now have a better understanding of those areas in which we have to improve. This will help us to exploit the full potencial of the car.” TECLA SAP – “Agora entendemos direito em quais áreas poderemos provar [o carro]. Isso vai ajudar quando a folha de potência indicar que temos de explodi-lo.”
BOTTAS, WILLIAMS – “I had a good start but then I drove off the dry line racing van der Garde and ran wide dropping to the back of the field.” TECLA SAP – “Foi um bom começo, mas aí tomei um dry [Martini] e quando saí dei de cara com a van do guarda. Chupei um drops e virei de costas, mas ele me fodeu.”
VETTEL, RED BULL – “I messed up today. I would love to come up with a nice excuse as to why I did it, but I can’t. I can understand Mark’s frustration and the team not being happy with what I did today; I owe an explanation to him and the whole team. I will try to explain to them later. We talk about this situation happening many times and what we will do if and when it happens and normally it doesn’t, but today it did and I should have translated the call into action. I got the call and I ignored it. Mark and I are used to fighting each other when we’re close, but with the tyres how they are now, and not knowing how long they will last, it was an extremely big risk to ignore the call to stay second. We could have ended up finishing eighth or ninth after destroying the tyres in those two laps; I put myself above a team decision, which was wrong. I didn’t mean to and I apologise. I’m not happy I’ve won, I made a mistake and if I could undo it I would. It’s not easy right now and I owe apologies to Mark and the team.” TECLA SAP – “Fiz merda.”
WEBBER, RED BULL – “I think Sebastian has respect for me and I have respect for him, but the situation today was not handled well. It’s hard to put your finger on it all now after the race; when we’re racing on the limit and pushing as hard as we can, then it’s the worst situation for a team. I am sure they are bricking themselves and know that things can go wrong. There’s a bit of history to this as well; my mind in the last 15 laps was thinking about a lot of things, but I was happy with the way I drove. I tried to isolate what happened at the end and we got something out of it today, but of course I’m not satisfied with the result. This puts heat on a few people and unfortunately there’s no rewind button. I know people want raw emotion from us after these situations and it’s there, but we need to remain cool. There’s three weeks until the next race, so time for us to work on things.” TECLA SAP – “Fez merda.”
HORNER, RED BULL – “Before getting into anything else, it was a phenomenal team performance from the car and pit crew today with the pit crew recording fantastically fast stops. We recorded our fastest ever time on Mark’s second stop, which is possibly a new best-ever in the pit lane. Obviously there’s an awful lot of debate about what happened at the end of the race. Our position after that finial pit stop was all about managing the race until the end and conserving our tyres, getting the cars to the finish and achieving maximum points. Unfortunately drivers’ interests can sometimes come into conflict with the teams’. Sebastian decided to take things into his own hands today and race Mark, thankfully making a clean pass and switching the order to the flag. It’s frustrating. Formula One is both a team and an individual sport and sometimes there is a conflict between a driver’s desire and a team’s interest. What happened today is something that shouldn’t have happened. It’s something that Sebastian has apologised for and it’s something that we will discuss internally as a team.” TECLA SAP – “Puta merda.”Comentários (40)
