Franz Tost: “Jaime’s race was over at the second corner due to a collision with Hamilton. Sébastien had a good start, lying eleventh on lap 2 and had a good first stint. In the second part of the race, he got stuck behind Kovalainen and we decided to bring him in early for the second stop, but by then the race had got away from us. It proves yet again that it’s important to qualify well to get a good race result.”

Sebastien Buemi: “I drove a consistent race, making no mistakes and everything on the car worked well. It’s a shame I could not pass Kovalainen, even though I was quicker than him, but at least I tried. Maybe a one-stop strategy would have worked better for me. I wasn’t involved in the first lap accident, but maybe I picked up some debris, as for several laps my front wing did not seem to be working and I tried driving over the kerbs to shake it loose and eventually it got better. Overall I think I had a good race and I hope that we do so again in Monza running in a low downforce configuration.”

Jaime Alguersuari: “My race didn’t last long. These things happen in racing and you just have to accept it. My start was not too bad and the car seemed to be going well. At Turn 2, Jenson spun and Hamilton had to move to the left to avoid him, moving on to the part of the track that I was on. We collided and my car was too damaged for me to continue. Hopefully we can do better in the coming races.”
