In the Airtel Indian Grand Prix, Lewis crossed the finish line in sixth position. "Massive congratulations to Seb on becoming four-time World Champion today. That's an awesome achievement and he's put in some incredible performances this season. I really hope we get to take the fight to him next year," said Lewis. "Looking at my race today, it's great that we got some good points, particularly with Nico's podium, and that the team are back to second place. The car has been pretty good this weekend but the race was frustrating for me."
Lewis finished in sixth place after spending much of the race stuck behind the slower Ferrari of Felipe Massa. "I tried so hard to get past Felipe but it just wasn't possible and unfortunately I destroyed my tyres in doing so", added Lewis. “Finishing in sixth place is never satisfying but we've got three more races and we'll keep pushing. I'm confident that we can get some more good results to keep the team in second place and we'll keep fighting to achieve just that.”
Nico and Lewis scored 26 points between them in the Indian Grand Prix. This takes the team back to second place in the Constructors’ Championship.
