Kevin Magnussen

I thought it was completely game over once I got passed by Pierre [Gasly] and the McLaren. I had a brake problem, and I went wide at Turn 2, went off the track and came back, so I thought it was game over then. When the Safety Car came, I pitted and had a really good pace on the soft tire and came up, and then got lucky when Russell hit the wall and gave me the point. It’s very satisfying for me. Personally, it’s the third grand prix this year for me in P10 – I’m earning those points each time. I’ve really had a season where I’ve had to battle and work hard on things. We pulled this one out of the hat, but we don’t expect the same opportunity on the upcoming tracks until we get the upgrade.

Nico Hulkenberg

It was a long race once again here, lots invested, a lot of work but no payout, unfortunately, at the end. At the first Safety Car, I was the trailing car in the double-stop, and we lost a lot of positions and ground there, which was not ideal. It was just unfortunate; not much we could’ve done about that. We managed the one-stop, but in the end, I was just a falling fruit. I think we might’ve missed an opportunity pitting during the VSC, I feel there could’ve been points there as I was way ahead of Kevin, and he managed P10. I’m a bit disappointed, but we drove a good race. There is nothing personally we can be unhappy about today.

Guenther Steiner, Team Principal:

After qualifying P6 and P9 yesterday, we brought a point home which, at the moment for us, is worth a lot, and I think it’s the best we can do with what we’ve got. I think everybody worked hard, and the point is well deserved. Obviously, we got a little bit lucky in the end when Russell hit the wall, but the guys were hanging in there to bring the cars back in the best position they could, and it worked out. Off to Japan!
