Toyota and Renault Boosted By Singapore Podium
Toyota and Renault have both declared they have been massively bossted by podiums in the Singapore Grand Prix last weekend.
Toyota boss John Howett was sure that the podium finish, 2nd place for Timo Glock would provide some excitement and further motivation for the Cologne based mechanics after a poor season. He also played down that this result would secure Timo Glock’s future with the team.
“It’s good for the motivation of the guys who work so hard. They worked really hard to get the package ready here.
“It’s quite a complex design on the rear of the car, and the production guys have really been pushing. As a race team, you race to win.
“I think it’s more for the motivation in the team, the belief that we actually can do it.”
Meanwhile Bob Bell of Renault said that their 3rd place was one of their most important results ever following a week of huge controversy with Nelson Piquet Jnr, Flavio Briatore and Pat Symonds in Crash-Gate.
“This result obviously lifts the spirits of the whole team enormously and will be fresh in everyone’s mind as we have back-to-back races this weekend.
“The team will therefore arrive in Japan feeling very upbeat,” said Bell in a team preview ahead of the Suzuka race.
“The race in Japan might not be the easiest for us, but I think the level of motivation will be much higher.”
