Nico had a tough day: “as nice as it was to start from pole this afternoon, it was just as hard to finish in ninth place. I didn't feel comfortable in the car today and it wasn't much fun out there really.
We switched to a four-stop strategy at the end of my third stint but it wasn't enough. We were using the rear tyres too much and at the end, I was really struggling and wasn't able to push hard enough.
There is a lot of work ahead and we need to focus on why our race performance isn't matching the pace that we can show in qualifying. Hopefully we can make some steps here before the European season starts.”
