British Grand Prix - Today was not a great day.

It was a difficult race. The brakes got fire on the grid and I think this is the reason why I had no grip at the start: they were too hot. During the last laps, after the problem with the front left tire, I tried to get the car back and recover some points. It was difficult today because I was stuck at the beginning behind Max, but I am not the one to judge what happened between him and me. After that I think the pace was good, considering the fact that I was on the Soft tires. Valtteri was on other compound, the Supersofts, so it was clear that he would have been strong. Today was not a great day, but we'll see what happens in Hungary, on a different track.

Austrian Grand Prix - It was a shame that we couldn't win.

Today I struggled in the first stint with the first set of tires, the Ultrasofts. I think they were just getting too hot. Then the clouds came in and the balance of the car improved. That's why I think we were starting to get quicker. It was a shame that we couldn't win, because we were close. We learnt more about the car in these days and there are many positive aspects regarding this race, but I feel like I could have won today and I didn't, so I am not entirely happy. At the beginning of the race I was just not quick enough. The pace was there, but the balance wasn't. I like this place, which has a lot of history and it's the place where I drove a racing car for the first time, in 2003. It's a long time ago, but I still have beautiful memories. And now I am already looking forward to going to Silverstone.

Azerbaijani Grand Prix - It's disappointing, because it could have been a better result.

First of all, I think that today the car was very good. The pace was strong in the race. I think you could see that we were losing a bit here and there, but overall it was a good race. It was a very busy start, and Vallteri was very aggressive. As for what happened at the restart from the safety car, I don't know why I got the penalty and Lewis didn't. It's disappointing, because it could have been a better result. I don't have a problem with Lewis but I just think that what he did on the track was not ok. By now the decision is done but, in an episode like this one, I still think that if you give out a penalty, then it should be to both drivers.
