I've always felt very fortunate to have had my father... what he achieved and everything... to have his support and extra pressure? It's a normality for me you know, having my father World Champion. I grew up with that, started racing like that, so it's not something where I feel any extra pressure because for me that's normal.

Mark, I'm just wondering whether you have an opinion on this secret tyre testing, whether it had any impact, and whether you think there was any advantage to Mercedes having done the testing?
That's a fair question. I think we were probably a little bit surprised that it happened. I don't think it probably had a huge bearing on today's result. I think their car was always going to perform pretty well round here, to be fair, but yeah, you can't unlearn what went on at the test obviously, so we need to see how the test came about and whether it's within the rules or not. I'm sure Mercedes thought it was OK, so that's why they did it, so time will tell. But I don't think it affected today's result.

Nico, what was the most difficult thing for your victory today, getting the pole yesterday, starting after the safety car, or the last lap with the emotion?
Qualifying was difficult because of the conditions. The start was very difficult because I had a bad start. Those were the two keys. Once those two things were done, from then on it was OK. There were still some challenges with the safety car, because the tyres were very cold on those prime tyres, for example so there were other challenges but the main ones were qualifying and the start.
