On the penultimate lap of the race Magnussen was driving the ninth, but his position was encroached Daniil Kvyat: to come into contact Kevin received a puncture and was forced to go into the pits for an additional pit stop, which allowed Grosjean to score one point.

“The team is a valuable point, but Kevin it’s a shame to lose ninth place due to a puncture of the tire, said Romaine. I made a successful start, and in the first and second turns had a lot of contacts I had to travel outside of the trajectory to avoid collision.

If not for that, I would have to go right for Nico or even be ahead of him, and the race would have been completely different.

I can say that the pace of the machine on the Soft was good, but I was constantly in traffic. If we talk about Medium, I was not able to get to work the tires in the right temperature window. We have a lot of work ahead”.

Kevin Magnussen, who finished 14-m, said: “It’s not frustrating. We could call in both cars into the points… I had contact with Cuatom. Everything would have been fine if not for the tyre puncture.

I did everything in my power. If we managed to finish in the top ten, it would be a remarkable result, and so I am disappointed.”
