“I think what made the race was my first stint, after that I could just manage my pace, making sure that the tyres were always in a good window. But the McLarens were quick again today, I had to push for it. It was definitely a tough race out there.
“One of, top five probably. We’ll enjoy a little bit, but there’s still quite a few races out there that we want to win.
“I prefer we can just push as long as we can on a tyre and not force pit stops. We design cars to be good on tyres so today we couldn’t optimise that fully because that’s normally our strong point. We’ll see what we can improve in the future.”
