I think it's a shame because today we had done everything right. I had a really good start, I was a bit stuck at the first turn, but then I was able to go. Of course there's always a bit more risk in starting behind, but P7 is not P15. I was going into second corner, I was already attacking and approaching fifth place, but it doesn't help when people behind don't brake. What Kvyat did was completely unnecessary. I had a massive hit from behind, then another big hit in turn 3 and that finished my race. As far as I know, the race is 53 laps, but not everybody seems to remember. I don't think I need to say much, I think if you look at the footage you'll have the answers to your questions. Today it was not my fault, there was nothing I could have done differently, nothing I would change. I don't dislike him (Kvyat), but I think he did a mistake two weeks ago, he made a mistake today but it doesn't help me now. Obviously I would have loved to drive the car today to feel if we could keep the same balance into the race, but for the future nothing has changed. Of course I'm disappointed but we're already focused on the next race.
