"That was a pretty straightforward race that for us was really all about making sure both cars finished clear of the teams behind us without any problems. I had another good start and was ahead of my teammate through Turn 1 after starting on the supersofts. They started to go off relatively quickly, particularly the right front, which we knew would probably be likely in the race so for both stops we opted for the softs and they held up well for most of the afternoon. To be honest it was a pretty quiet race for me. We were easily able to stay ahead of the teams behind, we didn't have any problems with the car and we probably got as much as we could out of the car today."
"For me that was a good afternoon, probably the best result I could have had today. The car was working well throughout the race and I had a good battle with Heikki right from the flag. Today was really all about managing the gap to the Marussias, getting through the first corner without any problems and from there making sure I looked after the tyres. In the first stint that was pretty hard as the options I started on were graining quite early on, but both sets of primes I used in the second and third stints worked well and I was able to take it to the flag without any problems."
