“It was very bad situation we found ourselves in," the Spaniard told Sky Sports F1 after the session.
"Leaving the pits, last car and we felt the cars in front of us, pressure to the flag and then also the situation with the traffic in the first and second sector, so the guys just had finished the lap.
"Don’t think they got out of the way nicely but it’s our fault. We went out too late. We had a problem with the front wing which delayed us quite a bit, so we just need to have a look at what we could have done better, but honestly overall the whole weekend, it’s been a tricky weekend.”
