Nico felt he had a “good start to the race but unfortunately it ended fairly quickly today. In the first corner Grosjean spun into Webber and that also led to my accident.
I began to brake but Senna crashed into me from behind which destroyed my rear tyre and meant that I had to retire.
It’s a shame as I felt very comfortable with my car on the installation lap, and I was confident that we could score some decent points. I’ll now hope for a better weekend in Korea.”
