“I did talk about the tyres, I did complain, but I always said that, as long as there are other people doing a better job, then we have no right to complain, we need to catch up,” he explained, “I don't think you have to be a genius to see that, from race to race, some people suffer with the tyres - maybe someone more and some people less – and cannot go the true pace of their cars. It's obviously very strategic these days but, then again, it's the same for all of us.
“Out of four races, I think we've had two good ones and two maybe average ones, but, if you look at the results, the average is not really disastrous either. To come third and fourth is a very strong result and I'm sure not complaining about the results.
“Comparing F1 to a couple of years ago, it's surely different - you can't push as hard as you like every lap, you have to work with the tyres and sit at a certain pace and go from there. That's what we - at least the drivers that I have talked to – think is enjoyable than in the past.”
