I think everyone was pretty scared after what happened last week with the tyres blowing and everything, but we made it work and I am also very happy with the progress I have made with the tyre management."
"This morning, I was really pushing for it. Also during the race, I was pushing for 'Plan C' all the time, which was a one-stop strategy for here.
