      He likes a very low downforce setup compared to other drivers.. it makes him accelerate much faster down the straights. While a low downforce setup usually makes a car lose grip at the corners, "His slip control on the throttle coming out of the corners is just remarkable" - Andrew Green, Aston Martin Technical Director
