“Obviously, I was disappointed, but the good thing we can take away from this weekend is that we have extremely good pace.

“As a result, I think we can really attack in the next few races. It’s going to be hard to close the gap to guys like Fernando [Alonso] and Sebastian, especially when they keep finishing race after race, but I’ll never give up.
