Hello and welcome to F1 News Today with Tillie! 

Right, let’s take a look at what’s making news in the world of Formula 1 today…

I know I’ve spoken a lot about Lando lately, but well, it’s my podcast and I’ll cry if I want to… 

After two weeks to stew on his Russian disappointment, Lando Norris is set to put that weekend in his rearview mirror and use it as motivation as the F1 paddock heads to Turkey this weekend.

Speaking before the weekend, Norris said…

“I’m looking forward to getting back to the track after a disappointing end to the last grand prix!

“Since then I’ve been spending a lot of time in the simulator, learning from the experience in Russia, and I’m ready to go again…

“The Turkish circuit is a real driver’s track and I’m glad we’re heading back there again after an exciting race last year!

“The fans out there are really passionate too, so it’ll be great to see them all again! 

“As always, we’ll be working hard to keep up the fight in both Championships… 

“We know how important every race between now and the end of the season is, so we’ll be pushing hard to score as many points as possible!”

That’s my boy, we believe in you Lando!

Fernando Alonso could be forgiven for getting all nostalgic this weekend as he returns to Turkey, the scene of his famous 2006 battle with 7-Time World Champion Michael Schumacher…

Although Schumacher’s Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa took the win, all eyes were on the battle for second, as Alonso just managed to hold off Schumacher in a pivotal moment in their battle for the 2006 World Championship!

Speaking about his return to Turkey, Alonso said…

“I have some nice memories of the Turkish Grand Prix!

“It’s a circuit with a good mix of high-speed corners and overtaking opportunities… 

“Turn 8 is a unique challenge and I look forward to tackling this corner in a modern-day Formula 1 car! 

“I had a fun battle with Michael Schumacher there in 2006! 

“He was right behind my gearbox exiting the final corner on the last lap… 

“That was just one of a number of on track battles we had that season… 

“We’ve had some good races this year and importantly we’ve been consistent!

“We need to keep up this consistency and score more points for the team to finish the season on a high!

After scoring points in Russia. Alfa Romeo are hoping for a Turkish Delight this weekend!

Yes, I went there, deal with it…

Ahead of the weekend team boss Frédéric Vasseur said…

“Scoring points in Russia was a big confidence boost, finally bringing home a reward for all the hard work of the team!

“We were able to make the most of the circumstances in the closing laps of the race… 

‘The conditions were difficult, but we achieved a good result! 

‘Now we have to keep up this level of performance, ready to make the most of the chances we may get!

‘Last year we did really well in qualifying in Istanbul, that will be a basis on which to build as we return to Turkey aiming to have another positive race…”

Can they bring home the chocolates? 

Boom tish, oh yeah baby, I’ll be here all week…

Finally, another driver looking to bounce back after Russia is Pierre Gasly!

The Frenchman missed out in Russia, and wants to make amends this weekend…

Gasly said…

“We missed a great opportunity in Russia, as we did not make the best of the chances we had… 

“We have worked since then to understand what we could have done better in order to be as well prepared as possible and back near the front again, starting this weekend in Turkey!

“Last year was my first ever time driving at Istanbul Park… 

“It’s a layout I really liked!

“It’s quite unique with interesting corners, a very technical track, complicated when it comes to the driving and I very much enjoyed it last year!!

“I’m looking forward to it, because it was a really cool track to drive with several different and interesting lines to take through the corners, so I hope we can be competitive and close the gap to Alpine, who are currently in front of us…”

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with more news ahead of the Turkish Grand Prix…
