“It was all about the tire. Lance called it at the beginning of Q3 and said it’s going to be intermediates at the end. He was absolutely right. He called it at the very beginning, which is difficult to do. But we put him on the intermediate, and he did the job.

“I think this is the first time this year I sit here upset. I think that says it all. It was all going quite well on the wet tyres but already, in Q1 when I tried to go on the inters, they were not working at all even compared to other people on inters around me. So I was, in Q3, not very sure to go on inters because I felt really comfortable on the extreme tyres. I think the track was definitely leaning to intermediates; for me it just felt so poor that I think if I would’ve stayed out on the wets, I could’ve done the same lap time. Clearly something was not working for us today on that tyre.”
