Nico finished the race in Barcelona in seventh place today. His car unfortunately lost radio communication early in the race, and his overtaking ability was hampered by a DRS malfunction. Nico followed the same strategy as Michael, stopping one lap later than him on laps 11, 27, 42.
“It was a difficult race for me after I lost radio communication with the team early on which was tough, and my DRS was not working properly which made any overtaking almost impossible. I had fun in the battle with Michael for P6, although I wasn’t able to attack him fully and was therefore stuck behind him for most of the race. I’m now looking forward to my home Grand Prix in Monaco. I love the track and I’m sure we can be closer to the front there.”
