“It was about controlling the gap for me and saving tyres for when I needed them.

“The safety car wasn’t helpful as it was an anti-climax but as long as no-one was hurt then that’s the important thing.

David Coulthard, Ex F1 driver and BBC F1 co-commentator says that, Fuel key to Mercedes-Ferrari duel – “With higher fuel loads it seems Ferrari have been able to keep Mercedes honest but when it lightens they can’t keep up.”

Force India driver Nico Hulkenberg on his retirement: “I’m not sure what happened to the car. I just lost drive and had to park the car. It was an unpleasant experience. The German told BBC

“It is what it is. I felt OK, not mega not great. I was surprised I could keep up with the Toro Rosso and Lotus at the start. It’s disappointing.”

Hulkenberg is one of two retirements so far, Daniil Kvyat of Red Bull the other.
