USA Grand Prix - It was not the best day..

My start was good today. I think also in Japan the start had been that good, but we just didn't have power, so it's good we had it done here. It was good to get the rhythm, but after a couple of laps I was really struggling with the tires that were getting too hot. I am a bit disappointed, because we couldn't win and I had wanted to. We are on the right track, but all the things that happened to us came out not because of bad luck or because of somebody else; I think it was all on our side and we need to admit that. Then there were races in which we were stronger and we just didn't race, which is even worse. There are positive aspects, but this was not the result we were looking for and thus, of course, it was not the best day.

Malaysian Grand Prix - Seb fights back.

I am still optimistic, because we know that we have a quick car. Of course it was a shame for Kimi who couldn't take the start, and for me having to begin my race from the back of the grid. We tried to fight for the podium, pushed very hard, but in the end the tires were starting to give up and we couldn't be really there. However, it is promising to see the car is good, even if both Kimi and I hit trouble this weekend. I don't know yet if the issue is the same on both cars, we'll need to have a look. For sure it's not ideal having one car out yesterday and another one today. So, there's something we need to understand. It's been a difficult weekend, but nevertheless the speed is there. So far we've had a pretty good record for this year regarding reliability. I am not that worried to be honest, but we need to get on top of the problem.

Singapore Grand Prix - An all too short race.

I had an average start and then I moved slightly to the left trying to defend my position from Max. Then I got bumped on one side as Kimi's car hit me. I'm not sure what happened. I span at turn 3, but that's because the car was damaged already. Today we were on the wrong side of the track, which doesn't help. But there is nothing we can do now and for sure it is bitter, and it's a pity we couldn't show our pace today; but we have other races ahead of us and I am sure there will be more opportunities for us.
