“My result is not very good, but maybe a point is good today,” he said shortly after the race. “For me, the start was good, but at the beginning of my long stint on the harder (medium compound Bridgestone), I suffered from lack of grip and I lost positions.

“When the drives were being spent, I had a lot of understeer. Instead when I rode with new tires I was able to overcome the two Toro Rosso, but it was not easy to overtake on this occasion, we needed a good straight line speed to advance into the first corner and I really did not have much speed. ”
