Haas F1 Team
"The worst thing that could happen to us did happen as we started on the opposite strategy, on the hard tyre. Almost everyone else was on mediums and the worst thing that could happen was a safety car on lap 16 or 17, and it happened on lap 16. To still get two points is very good and the car was phenomenal again, it's such a joy to drive. We did get a little bit of luck back at the end with the VSC but had that been a safety car rather than a VSC, everyone would've been condensed and with new tyres we would've scored big points again. The team has done a fantastic job and we bounced back from a difficult situation on Friday, so I'm happy."
"I'm feeling good – to be able to stand here, not even being sore, just shows the safety and security of these cars. I feel fit but car preservation is important if we want to be racing in Melbourne, but we have the pace and that's all that matters. The goal is still Q3 and points, so we will just have to delay that until Australia now."
Guenther Steiner, team principal
"It was a good day again and we got some points. Obviously, we planned to have more but we're happy with what we got and as long as we keep scoring, we're happy. We started on a different strategy – on the hard tyre – to most of the other teams and unfortunately the safety car came out at the wrong moment. Nevertheless, Kevin and the team fought back to get into the points which was fantastic to see again. Spirits are high here and we cannot wait to get to Melbourne to hopefully score some more points with both cars."
