“Considering the past couple of weeks, I’m really happy with the weekend and to finish on the podium. Obviously, it’s not as good as I’d have liked, but congratulations to Max and Red Bull, they were very quick today and deserved the win. This weekend they were just too far out of reach for us and we couldn’t hold onto the pace they had. It was fantastic to see Alex right up there with us, too. From my side, that was a hard race, so I’m definitely glad that it’s over.
But on the bright side I made it through, and I didn’t think last week that I’d even be here. So, I’m just grateful for my health and looking forward to recovering over the winter and getting back into training, to get my body back to where it should be. Finally, a huge thank you to the team for their continued support and hard work. They’ve done a great job all season long and it’s fantastic to end the season with two podiums”, – said Lewis Hamilton.
