Second season with the team and the Constructors' title for a second time, and Valtteri continues to be impressed and amazed by what this team can do.
"I'm really happy and proud to be part of this team," he said. "This is down to hard work by every single team member, both back at the factories in Brackley and Brixworth as well as here at the race track - they really deserve this title!"
"It's usually only a few people who are in the spotlight all the time, but there are many, many hidden heroes in our team. We have been able to keep it together and push the limits of the sport and of ourselves, even under immense pressure."
"I have been doing everything I can to score points for the team and to be a team player. It wasn't my season but our season. It is impressive what we have been able to do as a team."
For Valtteri, consistency and making as few mistakes as possible were the keys to success. He also had some special words to say for Niki Lauda, who is recovering from an operation. "I hope he is watching," said the Finn. "Without Niki, it wouldn't be possible. That is a fact. His racing mind, his attitude, even though he is not here now physically, mentally he is."
