Spanish GP

“We were leading, it was there for us… Mercedes had their mistakes on Lap 1 and the race was in our hands. And then we went to three-stop strategy, and did it too late as well – Seb had already jumped us… So then not only I was required to pass Seb, I had to pass three cars when we know we are down on speed and it is a hard track to pass…”

“I thought at the time we were doing it because everyone else was – it didn’t make sense, I thought that at the time. It’s frustrating – normally the guy in the lead gets the better strategy.”

“I think we just threw the win away today.”

“It’s frustrating and a shame to be out of the race more or less from the first lap onwards but these things happen with racing. After the start I felt a big hit. I saw Seb come into me but it looked like he got hit as well. We had a lot of damage and had to pit. We thought we’d try the mediums but that wasn’t really working. Unfortunately the damage was so much that we didn’t really learn anything from today’s race and we don’t know what our pace was. Barcelona and Monaco should be better, so we have a few races to be excited about.”
