"I've been testing there a few times and I like the track," enthused the 15-year-old Briton. "It's got some really good corners, the first section and some of the faster ones I really enjoy."

The Jenzer Motorsport driver is please with progress in his first formula season. "I think we go forward with the car every time we test, we did struggle a bit at Vallelunga but in general it is getting better and better. I feel we are well prepared for this weekend, of course it can be different when everyone gets out on track so you never really know till then but I think it will be good."

"From the weather forecast it could do anything but I'm not worried about that, we tested in the wet in Misano and that was OK so it doesn't matter too much."

The 16-year-old Norwegian was due a lot more from the opening weekend and wants to make up for it. "I've been dealing with school exams this week and I can't wait to get out there, I'm hungry for that first win this season and I just hope that what happens is in my hands this time," stated Hauger referring to the very odd fuel issue that saw his qualifying times erased at the last event.

The Van Amersfoort Racing driver is ready for Misano. "We had a test, that was my first time there and it went well, a lot of drivers there and I was P2 so that was not bad. Some of the other cars were quite quick in a straight line, they seem to be like that and then they are normal when it comes to the race. The Prema cars do have pace on the straights but we have the edge on them in the corners so that's OK."

"It's an interesting track, the first section is slow to medium speed, then it opens out to a fast slipstreaming section down the back. That's in the middle of the lap, so you've got to make sure you are well positioned coming it to that to get the slipstream," he added.
