“It was a great day for us as a team and we can be very happy of our performance here this weekend” said Nico after the race. “It was a good feeling to be competitive and to be able to set fastest lap times during the race.
Thanks to all of you at the team for all the hard work, results like these are very well deserved. Of course, it was disappointing for me having to hold position but I understand the team's decision to safeguard our positions and to make sure that both cars got to the end with a strong team finish, especially in light of the tough times behind us.
There are a lot of races to go and our performance today makes me look forward to fighting for more podium finishes in the future.”
