I don't remember too well but I don't think so. It was a very different race. I think we were closer to victory in Abu Dhabi or closer than what we were here today. We didn't have the pace to fight with Kimi today. He was too fast for us and he did a fantastic job. I think in Abu Dhabi it was different with the safety car. I think with 15 or 20 laps to the end of the race we really had the opportunity there to fight for victory and today they were too fast.

A question for Fernando. Could you please describe the decision process about the second stop because it was the main point of your race and Felipe is not so happy with that. It was two or three laps later.
There is always the flexibility to anticipate the stop, delay the stop. There are some kind of laps that you programme before the race to do the stops as you predict more or less with the simulations etc. But there is always a margin of three or four laps shorter or longer depending on how the race goes. How the race goes is the tyre degradation that you are facing through that particular race or the traffic you are facing through that race. In my case we felt we were a lot faster than the cars in front. We stopped in lap 20 or 21. We felt we had more pace for 18 or 19 laps so it was the right time to start. It was too early then maybe that compromised the full potential of the three stops. For that we could not maybe fight with Kimi because it was too early also for three stops, I think lap 21. It was enough to jump three place though, Sebastian, Felipe and Sutil. So it was a very good decision at the time but what we didn't know at the time was the pace of the Lotus. So they did a better job than us and maybe we did a better job than the others in the front.

A question for Sebastian, a question about tyres. I don't know if you've seen the weather forecast for Malaysia next weekend but it's rain Friday, Saturday, Sunday. Given the tyre wear of your car in the dry this weekend. Are you thinking of a conservative game plan for this weekend or is it business as usual?
Let me answer with a question back. Have you ever been to Malaysia? It rains every day! It doesn't really make sense to look at the forecast. It's one of those places where there's always rain at some point in the day. Yeah, I think it's a completely different place. I think last year we cannot take as a reference because we had different issues with the car. I think starting with the season this year the car seems much more balance and I'm much happier, in a much happier place. So, looking forward to next week. It will a lot hotter, naturally there is a risk of rain, thunderstorms. We've got rain tyres and intermediates, so we should be fine but in terms of approach there's not too much difference. I don't think you can take this race as a reference because the circuit is too different and as I said, the conditions will be different plus the tyres we use are different again.
