Nico feels that this hasn't been “one of our best weekends and it feels like everything was a little compromised from the outset. It's a real shame as the pace of the car looked really good in the race but we weren't able to take full advantage because of the issues from yesterday.
It's so important here to feel comfortable with the set-up and I wasn't able to get the car as I wanted after losing the time in third practice. I tried everything to overtake Nico for the extra place today but he was very quick at the end and it didn't work out. Now we'll look forward to Singapore in a couple of weeks. I love street circuits so hopefully that will be a better weekend for us.”
