“It’s been a very tough day. We didn’t get what we were expecting on the ultrasofts. On the supersofts, we made it as good as we could for as long as we could. We got the maximum out of the tyre life. Then on the ultrasofts, we were having problems we were just not expecting. There was a lot of rear degradation. I decided to pit again under the final VSC (Virtual Safety Car). It didn’t make a difference in finishing with Kevin. It was very close. Just a tough day.”

Kevin Magnussen
“We had gotten ourselves into a good position, then we pitted around lap 40. When we got out onto the ultrasoft tyre though, it just didn’t work at all. I mean, if we want great racing, we need tyres. That just wasn’t possible today with these tyres. It’s tough, but we move on.”

Guenther Steiner, team principal
“The only good thing about this weekend is that it ended. There’s nothing good to take away from here. We were just too slow and we couldn’t get the tyres to work. We move on to the next one.”
