Verstappen looks to build in Brazil

JOS VERSTAPPEN believes Arrows are more than capable of taking another step towards improving on their current position in this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix.

The Dutchman ran as high as third in the Malaysian race and just missed out on a points finish, coming home in seventh place.

But Verstappen believes the improvements gained from further testing in Barcelona will help him in a tough race at Interlagos.

"Hopefully we can make the car a little bit better and have another good race," said Verstappen. "I am still very motivated after Malaysia."

The anti-clockwise race offers a huge challenge for the drivers, particularly on their neck muscles and although Verstappen says he is well prepared, his inexperienced team-mate Enrique Bernoldi will find it tough in his home race.

"I want to finish the race this time, especially as it will be in front of my friends and family," said Bernoldi, who has not yet passed the checkered flag in a race this season.
