Nico finished the Airtel Indian Grand Prix at the Buddh International Circuit in second place. "A great job from Sebastian today and his fourth title is well deserved. For our team, it was a very important race today," said Nico. "We scored a lot of points and climbed back up to second place in the Constructors' Championship. I'm quite confident that we can keep that position until the end of the season as the team is doing a great job and our car looks good but it will be a fight."
It was the first runner-up spot of the season for the team. "I had good pace today and we really nailed the set-up here. The team did a fantastic job on the strategy and thanks to the boys for that", added Nico. "The only thing which didn't work out perfectly was when I dropped behind Felipe at the start as it was not easy to overtake him on the track, but then we managed to clear him in the pits. Our target was to be the best of rest this weekend and it worked out perfectly."
