“The car felt fantastic today” said Lewis after the race, “and I had good grip for the low-speed corners but we just weren't quite on the pace of Seb and Fernando. I was on the maximum that I could possibly drive and we got absolutely everything out of the car today.
It would have been nice to have kept second place of course but Fernando was very quick today and it was difficult to keep him behind. I got close to taking the place back but he was just that little bit too fast.
Still I'm very pleased with third place and it was a strong points-scoring day for the team with Nico's fifth place as well.
We've taken a step up in the Constructors' Championship which is great for the team and gives us a nice boost going into Silverstone.”
