Lewis is “really happy with our result today. It's been a tough weekend for us but we got through it and finishing in fifth place was some good damage limitation.
My race didn't start well at all. I was looking after the tyres but I really struggled on the first two stints and was falling back. But as the temperatures dropped, the car picked up and then I had the grip that I needed to push and close the gap.
I had so much fun fighting with Mark at the end. We really needed that point and I was so determined to get by. It was good, clean wheel-to-wheel racing.
I'm very proud of what we have achieved over the first four races and to be third in the Drivers' Championship is beyond any of our expectations. But we've got to keep pushing and find more performance. We're hanging on by the skin of our teeth at the moment and, if we can make that next step, then we can close the gap.”
