Kimi Räikkönen

“I was a bit disappointed to miss out on Q3 yesterday, but we knew it would be much better to start on different tyres than the softs, and it was. I didn’t have the best start, but, luckily, I didn’t lose too much on the straight and I was able to fight back in the next few corners. We were in a strong position after the start, because of the hard tyres, but I had to hold back Hülkenberg the whole race. For most of the afternoon, it was a great battle with the Renaults. In the end, I was able to catch up with the cars in front. The last few laps were very intense, I had a lot of fun. It’s really good that we were able to compete against other cars in the midfield. We had the speed and we got a good result in the end.”

“It was disappointed to lose out on points, but we were facing the odds, because we started on soft tyres. It was the price we paid for a good performance on Saturday, but it effectively compromised my race from the start. We pitted early, as the softs didn’t last, and in the end we had to make another stop just to finish the race. I can still take some positives from a strong qualifying, and, of course, it was important for the team to get back into the points. I would have loved to celebrate Alfa Romeo’s birthday with a better result, but we showed our competitive side. Hopefully we can build on this performance, before racing again."
