D’Ambrosio: Sunday will be a big day for me

Virgin Racing’s F1 rookie, Jérôme D’Ambrosio who replaces Lucas di Grassi for the 2011 season says he can’t wait to make his F1 debut in Melbourne this weekend. “Now that it’s just around the corner, I’m really starting to get excited about the first race in Melbourne.” Said the young Belgian driver “It’s kind of strange because I’ve been driving for the team since September last year and after four Friday free practice sessions and five tests since that time I still have my F1 debut to look forward to.” “It’s been pretty busy until now but it has started to hit home and I’m really looking forward to it. Sunday will be a big day for me.” “I’ve had the best preparation I can imagine with so much running in all of the pre-season tests. I’ve also spent plenty of time in the simulator to prepare for Albert Park specifically. I’ve also spent the weeks since the last test in Barcelona really consolidating my fitness and I’m ready to start racing now. I’ve never been to Melbourne but I’ve heard great things, so I can’t wait to see it for myself.”
