Lewis feels that it's been a “great weekend for the team and I'm really happy for everyone. Big congratulations to Nico, he's been awesome all weekend here and really deserves that victory. From my side, this weekend hasn't really been the best and we didn't make the most of the opportunity for a one-two finish today.
When the safety car came out, I needed to maintain a gap so we didn't get delayed with the double pit stop but unfortunately the gap was too big and we lost out to the two Red Bulls. That's motor racing and these things happen sometimes.
It's the tightest track in the world here and virtually impossible to overtake unless you are much quicker than the car in front so there was nothing I could do to improve my position. But it's great for the team to have achieved our first victory of the season and I hope we can carry through the performance we showed here to Montreal.”
