Thursday press conference – Malaysian GP – Pt.1

It was a tough race. Max hit me in the first stint, so the floor got damaged quite badly. Anyway, we managed to finish the race and it was a good experience for me. I learned a lot with the tyres. Now this is the next step and we'll see what we can do here.

Q:
Looks like you're starting out the year chasing Marussia. Do you see reasons in the pipeline to be positive?

Giedo van der Garde:
I think with here you never know what the weather is going to be. I think we looked quite strong, I have to say, so I hope for a bit of rain here. And then the next two [races] we know we still have the same car and in Barcelona we'll get a big upgrade, so let's see where we are then.
