Here it is all about the sport - Theissen

By on

After the emotional highlight in Montreal, the BMW Sauber F1 Team now turns its attention to the French Grand Prix. BMW Motorsport Director Mario Theissen looks ahead to the coming Formula One weekend in Magny-Cours.

"We may have had a party to celebrate the one-two in Montreal, but this did not impinge on our preparations for the French Grand Prix. As we have up to now, we will focus on the next race and are aiming to put in another strong performance at Magny-Cours.

"The atmosphere in Monaco and Montreal is one of the highlights of the season, but personally I also greatly appreciate the rural surroundings of the Circuit de Nevers, as here it is all about the sport. The circuit is very demanding, and the travellers' community atmosphere in the paddock has its own particular charm. I will never forget the moment back in 2001 when we recorded BMW's first pole position since making its return to Formula One."
