It's my absolute goal (second place). I've had a couple of bad races lately but as soon as we put that right we'll get back to form.

It's been a long afternoon for me, with all these penalties. I think starting the race on the hard tyre, especially with the safety car that came out at the beginning, hurt us quite a bit.

It was difficult for me to judge where exactly the boundaries of the track were; Others apparently had it much clearer; But to me all this seemed like a joke, to come to take these types of solutions, modifying everything at the last minute.

The Mexican pilot recognized that the This Sunday's race was a very tough physical demand, while acknowledging how frustrating his performance over the weekend left him.

It has been a frustrating race. I am very disappointed to have failed my team. It was a poor weekend. We hope to improve everything for the next races.
