We continue to learn about our technical package at every race. I’m looking forward to racing at Sochi; it’s an enjoyable track to drive and it will be interesting to see how the softer tyre compounds affect strategy.
This is our first appearance at the Sochi Autodrom, following last year’s track debut. It’s an opportunity for us to learn, as well as to race – two of our favourite things. Sochi is set to become a driver’s favourite, too. They were quick to praise the layout as a grippy, enjoyable challenge after the inaugural race.
I’m glad to have two cars home after such a chaotic race – and for Jenson to score two points for ninth position. Not only was this a difficult track for our power units, but there were also two Safety Car incidents and many more retirements.
