11th, -1 lap
Perhaps I didn’t have the better tyres, but that’s because we expected poor weather today when we made the choice yesterday. It’s one of those things. I had a lot of understeer as a result, and I also had a poor start. In the first lap I lost my mirror, this is why I could not see Michael Schumacher behind me. This race was a very difficult race.
8th, -1 lap
When you start 18th in F1, you either get things done in the first lap, or you don’t get it done at all. I’m quite happy to have come up as high as I did by the end. My car felt good all afternoon, though I had a bit too much understeer on my last set of tyres. Otherwise, everything was fine.
When you start from less than optimal grid positions, you cannot be dissatisfied with eighth and 11th places. In retrospect, our tyre choice may not have been absolutely right, but we anticipated more bad conditions and the English weather surprised us. But our stops were very good, and once again the RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS C19s were completely reliable.
