Nico Hülkenberg could not materialize his fifth place on the starting grid, a result actually sounded like, but she got the best position of a pilot not Mercedes, Red Bull or Ferrari.
The German pilot is satisfied by having slightly increased the advantage to Williams in the championship standings, despite this being the circuit more conducive to the Grove. “Coming here we were a little worried because of the tracks left, this was the best he was going to Williams. So, to win a point is fine, we did what we could, really I gave the maximum today”.
“Räikkönen turned on me and there was no way to stop the car on the dirty area”
Hülkenberg had a weekend much more positive than that of his partner, so that you will be satisfied with what we have achieved, despite the fact that he came to roll in the fourth place ahead of the Ferraris and one Red Bull. “The other car (Sergio Perez) had a difficult weekend, so I think that is good what we did and I’m really happy for ello”.

The last laps were marked by various battles and Nico Hülkenberg starred in one of them with Kimi Räikkönen. Finally the Finnish driver will ahead after committing Hülkenberg spun, although without consequences. “I was surprised that we could keep you behind for so long. I tried to defend as hard as I could for the interior, but curb it in the dirty area with tyres for 60 laps, it is very complicated! He turned on me and there was no way to stop the car, so I forced a spin to avoid the collision”.
disappointing weekend for Perez
much Was expected of Sergio Perez this weekend, especially after his fourth place in the first free practice session on Friday. But, since then, few things have gone as expected, the mexican, who has not been able to shine in front of your audience.
“the race was very frustrating, I tried everything to overtake Massa but he had more top speed”
in this sense, Sergio has acknowledged being frustrated with the outcome following a career that has been slowed down by Felipe Massa, who had a tip speed is almost unbeatable. “despite that I have added a point, it has been a race very frustrating to me behind the Williams. I tried everything to adelantarles, but it is not easy because they had the advantage of top speed in a straight line. There have been a few occasions that I was close to pass Felipe Massa, but in the end it was not possible to”.
For Perez, the strategy has not been possibly the best, because it stopped too late to overtake Massa in the pit lane, despite the fact that the tires would have allowed for their low degradation. “I Think that we could have tried something different with the strategy, because we underestimate the effect of the medium compound, which at the end has lasted longer than expected. We could have stopped before and use the medium more time, we will have to analyse and understand if we had marked the difference with the result. Even with the tenth place, the fans have been supporting me loyally”.
