FROM THE COCKPIT mARK WebbeR “Ibviously I’m pretty disappointed with today’s race, but there is not much I can do, the alternator went wrong with very short notice so we had to stop straight away. It's tough because we did a lot of things right this weekend, but I've got a smile on my face as I could not have done any more. Well done to seb on his Championship and also to all the Team; to get a fourth title is amazing. It’s been a great job by the whole team to achieve the title four years on the trot and it has once again set itself as the benchmark for the others.” CHARleS PIC “After the start and coming out of turn one I was ahead of Chilton and my teammate. Giedo didn’t have anywhere to go and made contact with my right rear tyre and it punctured which meant I had to come in immediately for a stop. ... On the first set of mediums the car started behaving strangely and I was told to box again on lap 16. It turned out we had another puncture on the right rear and the tyre had lost a lot of pressure so we put on another new set of mediums and I pushed to close the gap to the cars ahead, but with such a big deficit it was always going to be unlikely I’d be able to catch and pass them. We gave it a go but we started losing hydraulic pressure.” GIeDO vAN DeR GARDe “I’m really disappointed my race ended so early. I made a fair start but coming out of turn one Chilton left me no room and we made contact, breaking my front wing and suspension. It’s been made really clear to us that we have to give each other room but today I wasn’t given any at all and that’s what’s finished my race before it really got going. It’s such a shame as this weekend the car’s felt really good, the balance has been there right from the first practice session and we know we have the pace on sundays to pull away from the cars we’re fighting with.” The GPWeeK driver of the day award goes to... ROMAIN GROsJeAN While sebastian Vettel was the man of the hour, the most impressive performance of the Indian Grand Prix belonged to Romain Grosjean, who made an aggressive one-stop strategy pay off despite starting on the softer compound. The Lotus driver made short work of passing the mid-field in the opening phase of the race, and demonstrated option-tyre pace on the prime compound at the end, even going as far as to set purple sector times on tyres that were more than thirty laps old at the time. Having started in P17 at a track with limited overtaking opportunities, Grosjean’s podium finish was nothing short of remarkable. 39 GPWEEK.com // 39 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS: F1 >>> INDIA
