"I was on the outside and got hit in Turn 4, had a puncture straight away and that was basically the end of the race. I think we were on a tough strategy because of the first lap incident but when the tyres were sort of new, the car was good. On to the next one."
"It's quite unfortunate. Obviously, we knew it was going to be tight with the two-stop and it didn't quite pay off to stay out so it's something to learn, something to understand and move on from here. It was a great Saturday, and we had a very clean Friday too which is very beneficial. We had a good start, a good first lap and that's all you want from today. Maybe the pace just wasn't there today but hopefully it will next week, so we'll keep pushing."

"The day didn't go as planned. There were a few things, first of all the interaction between Kevin and [Lewis] Hamilton in Turn 4 which put him out of the race really. With him we just tried to do things on a strategy that if something strange happened, we could maybe do something, but it didn't work. With Mick it was a tough race, it was a very good start, and it all went well, but after six laps we lost a few positions, and then it just went away from us. Not as planned but onwards and upwards."
