This energy and enthusiasm for Formula 1 is what we always want to see around the world, so thank you very much. I am convinced that we will have a Spectacular Grand Prix where we will see all of you supporting your idols,” said Domenicali.

“What a pleasure to see so many people and so many fans following us. I hope to be able to dedicate a victory to all of them this weekend at the Circuit. Nothing would make me more excited than to be able to win at home, since last year we were very close but we couldn’t finish the race. Today is something unique and a great appetizer for the weekend that awaits us,” said Sainz.
