Anyway, in all the other races we did good but this race we were a little lacking but still I am happy to take the Championship. The team has always worked hard and performed, they didn't make many mistakes and that is one of the keys to winning the championship, to be stable and consistent. I would like to thank them for everything. " said a happy Rosenqvist at the post race press conference.
