Sebastian Vettel: P5 is a very good result

“We had a good strategy. Also we had the chance to make a big progress with a safety car, but it didn’t come. So P5 is a very good result”, the German said. “Thanks to the team, I had been a bit down after qualifying. My start was not good, then there was the accident so I took it a bit easy. The car was still intact, but after the restart it was tricky to get the tires working. I was on the primes and lost quite a lot of time behind the Sauber. It was quite tough to get past, but then it was important to survive until we fitted the last set of Ultrasofts at the end. Then we really could unfold the pace. In the last laps we had a big gap from the front and from the back, so I took it easy.”

“I know patience is not a quality of the Ferraristi, it’s not a quality of mine either. We are here to win and we’re not satisfied until it happens, but we’re progressing step by step and one day I think it will pay off. I believe in the team, and I believe that in the future it will be better.”

Raikkonen: It was a good and solid race

“It was a good and solid race. The car was behaving well and we had a pretty good speed. Obviously it was very difficult to overtake. But at one point Hamilton made a mistake and I managed to pass him. After the pit stop he got the position back. We lost the place there. I don’t know how and why they managed to jump us, and I don’t know what would have happened if we would have stayed out. Now we have to go through everything, see what happened and what we could have done better. Today we gained one place from the starting position, but of course this is not the result we are looking for, we are trying to be in position to win, but we need to make the car a bit faster”, Kimi Raikkonen commented.
