2013 Australian GP Race quotes – Williams

Published

on

Williams – Valtteri Bottas (14th)
“I had a good start from my grid position and it felt great to be back racing again. A small mistake a few laps in cost me some places though. We got the maximum performance we could from the car today and although the pace isn’t there yet, there are still some positives to take away.

The next race is only a week away, so we will work very hard to prepare as best we can and try to score our first points of the season.”

Pastor Maldonado (DNF)
“It was a disappointing end to a difficult weekend for myself and the team. The car was not responding as we hoped in the conditions today and unfortunately I lost the back end and ended up in the gravel. We need to work hard to solve the problems in the car to be ready for the next race in Malaysia.”

Mike Coughlan, Williams technical director
“It was a difficult race for us. We opted to try two different strategies starting Valtteri on the supersoft option tyre and Pastor on the medium prime. In the end, I don’t think one strategy would have had a big difference in benefit over the other. It was good that Valtteri was able to bring the car home in his first race, but we have work we need to do now as a team to improve the performance. We have some ideas we are taking forward to the next race so we’ll be pushing hard in Malaysia.”
