Wonderful podium for Sebastien Buemi
Third on the grid, Sebastien had to deal with a heavily oversteering car just after the start, given the wet track. When the surface started to dry out, Sebastien managed to get closer to the leading drivers before the handling of his car started to deteriorate again. He crossed the line in third position, and will take the start of tomorrow's sprint race from the sixth position.
Sebastien Buemi: "At the start, on the wet, the car was sliding in a crazy way in the chicanes, although we had chosen a set-up specifically designed for the wet. Then, it was clearly better, but in the last part of the race, the rear tyres were so worn out that the car was oversteering again. We will have to modify the set-up tonight to try to improve the car for tomorrow's race."
