It’s nice to change a bit of environment. And actually a lot of the people here I know in the paddock. There’s a lot of drivers I’ve raced against and even the teams, there’s a lot of junior teams, mechanics that I know around, so a lot of familiar faces as well.
But it’s nice to start something fresh. It’s almost back to basics again, the drivers have the same catering, we just spend a bit more time together.
