Nico feels today was a “great day for the team, for Lewis and a brilliant job by everyone here at the track and back at our factories. Unfortunately my weekend didn't go quite so well and it's a shame that we couldn't have had a two-car finish today.
I got a good start but then Felipe and I came together on the first lap which was unfortunate as I was in front and had left some space for him but his front wing hit my rear tyre. That cost me a lot of positions and it's really difficult to make the places back up on
this track. Then my day came to an early conclusion with the engine failure.
However there are lots of positives for us to take as a team from this weekend and now I really look forward to the upcoming races as we know that we have a quick car and we made the new tyres work for us this weekend.”
