Haas F1 Team
"From lap one to the last lap, it wasn't good. The car was a handful. I just can't understand what has happened since Friday. Our long runs, short runs, everything was fast and competitive on Friday – everything was under control. I can't explain why it was so good then, and not the rest of the weekend. It was just not fun today. It was a tough day at the office."
"I think we did everything we could today. On our side, I think we just missed some pace, which is of course a very crucial thing. In terms of driving the race, and strategy, everything we thought we needed to do before the race – we did. We made a one-stop work, got a good start, I overtook when I needed to, got the balance right in the car, and all the communication from the team to me went well. It felt like a good race, it's just that the result isn't so good. It's just down to pace, I guess. Other than that, we did the best that we could."
Guenther Steiner, team principal
"It wasn't the result we wanted to have. It's just always trying to execute, do something to find some magic – but the magic didn't work today. This is where we are at for now. In Belgium we will see what the change in the engine modes does. I don't want to jump too much for joy, as I want to see first how it works out and what it does. I don't think everything is the engine, I think we've got work to do on the car as well. It's difficult for us this year in the circumstances we're in. The positives, our drivers drove hard today – they did the best they could. Everybody worked hard to get the best out of our package, this is the best we can do at the moment."
