"It's my first victory in three years, and was all about the start," he explained, "I got off to a very good start, and was able to push very hard during the opening lap because I was on fresh tyres. I decided not to wait too long to make my stop and managed to come back out in the lead."
Kubica's second place consolidates his position as championship leader, but the Pole agreed with Power that the race had, in part, been decided at the lights.
"Second is still a good result but, compared to Will and Eric, my start was nothing special," he confessed, "My first set of tyres were also pretty worn, and I wasn't able to push very hard in the opening laps, but I've got the points and that's the way I want things to continue in the championship."
Like Power, Fleming was able to celebrate a first, opening his podium account for the season.
"This result has been a long time coming, but we knew we had the potential to do it," the American commented, "Today, I ran the risk of opting for a late stop strategy and the team put in some excellent work to ensure it paid off."
