Wurz aiming for more points
« on: June 13, 2007, 12:25:50 AM »
The second leg of the North American back to back races takes Formula One to the largest sporting facility of its kind in the world, the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, for the United States Grand Prix this Sunday, 17th June.

Steeped in history, the Brickyard has hosted almost a century of motor racing since it was constructed in 1909 from 3.2 million bricks. However, having made its debut on the calendar as recently as 2000, this year's event is only the eighth time Formula One has visited the legendary track.

Providing venue number seven of this year's Championship, the Williams team will be hoping to extend their demonstrable form witnessed last weekend in a memorable race in Canada with another points scoring performance. The team will be looking to see if it can avoid the poor fortune of the last two races where, despite being competitive, bad luck has prevented both cars from scoring points.

'Coming to Indy is special as it is a race track which has a significant place in motor racing history, in fact, what a name - 'Indianapolis',” said Alex Wurz who finished third in Canada.  “I am really looking forward to the race and of course I come here feeling very positive after scoring some more points in Canada, but of course the US GP is another clean sheet and a new game."

"My goal is to ensure I qualify in the top ten and of course fight hard for some points in the race itself. The set-up for the race is quite similar to Canada, yet there are some subtle differences in the details, for instance the tyre compound is one step on in terms of hardness, so we will definitely have to do quite a lot of set-up work on the car to find its balance on this track.”

I think he and Webber are the tallest drivers in F1. I took him in the grid game, too. Williams has the cars, just not the engines.
