For Nico, today was saw “a very strange race” unfold: “we didn’t manage to find the right tyre management so I lost two positions towards the end of the race on my last stint which was 26 very long laps.
The one positive thing is that I was able to defend my position against Lewis and keep seventh place, rather than eighth. Once again today we saw a surprising and well deserved win which is good for Formula One. Congratulations to Pastor and Frank at my old team Williams! Now I’m looking forward to my home race in Monaco in two weeks with some updates on the car.”
