GP Week : Issue 183
FROM THE COCKPIT PASTOR MALDONADO “It was an unfortunate incident today with the Marussia car and the impact was quite big. Fortunately I am ok and the stewards took immediate action. We need to move on from a disappointing weekend but I’m looking forward to the next race in Canada, where we will be continuing to demonstrate the improvements in the car.” FELIPE MASSA “Today my race ended on lap 28 after an accident at the Ste. Devote corner, just as happened yesterday morning in the third free practice session. I was taken to hospital for all the precautionary checks and luckily everything is in order. I’m alright, I’ve just got a slight pain in my neck, but nothing serious. Now I will look to get in shape and be back 100% for the Montreal race. All I want to do is put this bad weekend behind me and think about doing well in the rest of the season.” CHARLES PIC “It’s obviously disappointing for my race to end that early, especially as I’d made a really good start and was running in 15th ahead of Gutierrez and just behind Di Resta on the same pace as him when I had to stop. It looks like the cause of the retirement was a gearbox problem and the fire was from the exhausts which had overheated. It looked a lot more dramatic than it felt in the car – I could feel there was a problem and started pulling over and as soon as the car stopped there was a lot of smoke, but it was all out quickly and the marshals did a good job to clear it away without bringing out the Safety Car.” The GPWEEK driver of the day award goes to... NICO ROSBERG The local boy done good. After dominating all three practice sessions and claiming pole, Nico Rosberg delivered a commanding performance to lead a chaotic race riddled with red flags, Safety Cars, and seemingly endless restarts. Despite pressure from his teammate in the first phase of the race, and the Red Bulls from the remainder, Rosberg kept a cool head inside the cockpit and didn’t put a foot wrong from lights to (red) flag to restart(s) to chequered flag. 40 GPWEEK.com // 40 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> MONACO
