Nico Rosberg, who took on pole: “No not [a perfect way to end qualifying.] I thought it was over – I thought the track would ramp up and someone else could beat my time. I’m happy it worked out. Pole at home is fantastic – it couldn’t be better.”

Rosberg, who can’t stop smiling, said: “Of course I’m sorry for Lewis I didn’t know where he was. Of course yeah it’s not great.”

Lewis Hamilton: when reporter told it was ironic that Rosberg’s incident meant no one else could improve. “Yeah, it’s ironic,” he says in reference to Rosberg taking pole having brought out the yellow flags which forced Hamilton to back off. “It was OK, I was up a couple of tenths, it was OK.”

When the media asked for a reply to Rosberg’s apology, Hamilton shrugs his shoulders and says: “I don’t have an answer to it.”

Daniel Ricciardo, who start from third again ahead of his team-mate Vettel: “I think all three of us don’t seem to be too pleased with ourselves,” he says. “I think we all feel that we’ve left something on the table. I fought the car all the way round in qualifying – in turn eight I lost it and the lap was pretty much gone after that.”
