For Nico, “the race was tough today and with my set-up I had an unexpected level of understeer which made it difficult to drive. After my second pit stop, the feeling got worse and I had one front wheel in the air during the corners.
The rear anti-roll bar, which influences the balance of the car, had broken so unfortunately we had to retire the car. It's a shame and I've had a difficult start to the season with two DNFs.
But it's good to have the next race in just seven days time so hopefully we can put this result behind us with a strong weekend in Bahrain. It was great for the team to get another podium today.”
