Tyre strategy: New Softs (1 lap)

Sergio: “What happened today is really unfortunate. I made a move on Adrian [Sutil] at turn 15 when he left the door open, so I went up the inside. Then Adrian started to close the door and I had to try and brake later than him. By doing so I was unable to avoid Read more of this post

PODIUM FOR DANIEL IN USA

DANIEL RICCIARDO,
Finish Position: 3rd, Start Position: 5th“I’m happy with that. I could see the Mercedes for the first part of the race which was really cool, I don’t know if they were just chilling, but we seemed to have good pace. It was great to get ahead of the Williams and to get onto the podium. The start wasn’t very good, I have to put my hand up to that one, but the recovery was good so we didn’t really lose out. The pit stops were really good, Read more of this post

Circuit of the Americas, Sunday November 2

Despite being involved in a number of spirited scraps – Jenson Button enjoyed a consummately measured ding-dong with Fernando Alonso, while Kevin Magnussen’s battle with Sebastian Vettel was also firm but fair – both our drivers encountered varying degrees of tyre degradation in the closing stages of this afternoon’s race.

packed. The response of the American public was an encouraging sign, which shows how much the interest in our
sport is growing in a country where we would like to strengthen its presence. It was a shame we could not give our

“It was an exciting race, but difficult at the same time. In the final stages I absolutely wanted to gain positions. I saw the opportunity to overtake Romain (Grosjean) and I decided to go for it. When he closed the door it was just too late. At the end, this is racing and you have to fight as much as you can. I like fighting, so it was good fun.

Fernando Alonso: “I think that this was a good qualifying and, looking at the times of the cars ahead of me, I
don’t think I could have done much more. Before coming here, we had thought about changing the power unit,
but then we opted for one we had already used, so as not to start from the pit lane. The track surface is much
better than in past years, with a lot more grip, but at the same time, there’s more tyre degradation so a two Read more of this post
