Top Ten Car

In a sentiment reminiscent of stock car racing, Spyker is aiming for a top ten finish in the upcoming Monaco Grand Prix. Managing Director Colin Kolles is optimistic.
“Until Spain, we were behind Toro Rosso as they had a better finishing record than us, but the double finish moved us back ahead, which showed we were making progress,” he explained, “It might not seem a lot, but it’s very important for us to be in the top ten. We cannot be happy with this in the long-term, of course, but we have to make the most of what we can achieve at present. The atmosphere is good as we can see we are moving forward.
“Monaco is known as a hard race and you can never predict what will happen. You could start on pole and then be knocked out at the first corner, or start at the back, it rains, you get the strategy right and suddenly you’re in the top eight. If we keep out of trouble and are reliable, we could be in the top ten.”
Both Sutil and Albers know Monaco well, with the German holding the current F3 lap record from 2005, when he was team-mate to current F1 sensation Lewis Hamilton. While Sutil has yet to make his F1 debut in the Principality, however, Albers has raced there twice, in 2005 and 2006, getting his car to the finish on both occasions, and Kolles is happy that this experience will be sufficient for an encouraging result this weekend.
Although Spyker is a smaller F1 team, I think they are good for the sport. They are always fighting to be more competitive. They remind me of the old Arrows team.
