George Russell (third): “Sadly, this weekend we weren’t the place we needed to be as a crew – however like I stated on the radio, it does not matter if we’re quick or gradual, we hold getting these podium finishes. Over this triple header, two of the three weekends have been very troublesome, and I’ve nonetheless come away with two podiums and a P4, so we have got to be glad with that. Taking a look at right this moment’s race, we needed to do one thing completely different if we needed to battle with Max and Charles, so we went for the Laborious tyre on the cease, however they had been simply too fast. That is all we might do in our place. Now now we have some weeks to recharge, regroup as a crew and put together for the ultimate a part of this season, so we will take each alternative that comes our means.”

Lewis Hamilton (fifth): “This morning, the crew stated wherever between sixth and fourth was doable. That all the time really feel like a stretch while you’re wanting forward on the race – however I had a number of enjoyable working my strategy to P5. The start was a battle, with a heavy gasoline load and the tyres overheating in site visitors, however then we began to make progress because the race unfolded – and I had some enjoyable after the stops working by the site visitors. On the finish, we stayed out to maintain the place on observe and it may need been a tricky battle if the race restarted, so I am glad it completed the way in which it did! General, we knew this was going to be a tricky weekend with the engine penalty, so I am happy to return away with a P5 end and to have pulled all the things out of the automobile. This wasn’t our greatest observe however we did all the things we might as a crew, and I hope now we have some stronger weekends forward earlier than the top of the season.”

Toto Wolff, Staff Principal: “We had been clearly the third quickest crew right this moment, so third and fifth positions was in all probability the utmost we might count on. Though the gaps weren’t as massive as in Spa, this was clearly a observe that did not swimsuit us, so it was a query of maximising our end result and doing harm limitation with Lewis. It was fulfilling to observe him battle by the pack – he appeared a bit bit caught initially, then as soon as the tyres got here collectively, he was very fast. As for George, he did all the things we requested of him, and it was one other faultless drive. Trying on the championship, we’re 35 factors behind with six races to go and we simply must do our greatest each single week and see the place we land after Abu Dhabi. However we additionally know that our final goal was 30 seconds up the street right this moment, and that’s the actual hole we have to catch up. Lastly, a phrase for Nyck: he did absolutely the most right this moment, leaping right into a automobile he had barely pushed in FP3, then scoring two factors. It confirmed precisely what he’s able to.”

Andrew Shovlin: “Taking a look at Spa and Monza, the automobile clearly struggles on the decrease downforce ranges so to return away with and podium for George and fifth for Lewis having began on the again row is a strong end result. The weekend has been robust, we have lacked nook entry stability on the rear finish which had meant the automobile was a little bit of a handful on the one lap. The gaps within the race had been a bit higher however it was nonetheless unattainable to do something on technique that may have put George higher than third. With hindsight becoming the laborious on his automobile on the first cease was a mistake however he did a very good job with it and would have stored Carlos at arm’s size had the race completed with out the security automobile. Lewis had a tricky begin to the race getting slowed down in a prepare of midfield vehicles however stored attacking and as soon as he bought into clear air, was in a position to put in some good laps and clear the lot. In direction of the top of the race, we weren’t pulling in Sergio quick sufficient to catch however as soon as they stopped it gave us a bonus place and it appeared like we would maintain onto it however as soon as the security automobile got here out that was assured. Triple headers are by no means straightforward for the crew and this one has been notably robust, however we hope to carry out higher within the closing races. The battle with Ferrari for second place offers us a very good objective to work in direction of within the ultimate a part of the season, so we’ll be utilizing the subsequent two weeks to arrange as it may be a tricky end with six races in eight weeks.”

Max Verstappen (1st): “The primary lap I needed to be cautious however we had a very good begin and had been clear by the primary chicane and for me that was crucial factor, to remain out of hassle. Then we had been in a short time again as much as P3 and even into P2, then I might set my sights on Charles and I might see we had higher tyre degradation. General in case you take a look at the tempo of our automobile this weekend, particularly right this moment, I feel we had been robust. The tempo was good on each tyre and we had been comfortably the quickest on the observe. You must attempt to be as good as you will be and on most events this season, now we have been fairly good.”

Sergio Perez (sixth): “My race bought compromised pretty early when my entrance proper brake disk bought super-hot and was principally on fireplace, so we needed to make the choice to pitstop. The primary laps on the laborious I could not get any temperature into the tyres as a result of I needed to carry and coast, I used to be dropping a number of lap time and my first stint was compromised. That affected my complete race and I needed to massively handle my breaks, it was essential at that time as a result of I might have misplaced them and needed to retire the automobile. Ultimately we boxed considering we might get Lewis again on the softs however sadly the security automobile meant we did not get the possibility. I had higher tyres than Lewis so it could have been good to get the restart however sadly that wasn’t the case. For me it wasn’t a very good weekend and now we have loads to do, I’m again on the simulator tomorrow and attempting to get again into a very good rhythm right away.”

Christian Horner, Sporting Director: “We might have preferred to have seen the race play out right this moment, we actually did not need to win beneath a security automobile. We consider there was sufficient time to get the race going however the security automobile picked up George Russell which delayed proceedings. Regardless of that, we consider we had sufficient tempo in hand on the one cease technique. Checo needed to pit early as a result of there was a flat spot, a number of vibration, then a little bit of particles bought into the ducts which brought on a small fireplace, however his restoration from there was nice. Quickest lap for Checo too so necessary factors for him and the crew. Max was but once more so spectacular, even when they’d the quickest automobile, I am unsure if anybody might cease Max right this moment. The entire crew has been acting at such a excessive stage all season and our efficiency all weekend has been good. We all know we compromised quali barely yesterday however it paid off. Extra challenges lie forward with Singapore and past so we sit up for that. In the end it was a somber race for apparent causes however we’re completely satisfied we might deliver residence the win with Her Majesty’s insignia on the nostril of the automobile and we dedicate the victory to the life and reminiscence of HRH, Queen Elizabeth II.”

Seeing our tifosi beneath the rostrum made it lots higher. Our tempo was good and now we have to understand that our expectations for this observe weren’t very excessive. We labored lots all through the apply classes to safe pole, which was a pleasant shock. We’ve got made some optimistic progress and had been extra aggressive this weekend, so I’m wanting ahead to be again racing in Singapore.”

Carlos Sainz (4th): “A very good race! I felt snug proper from the beginning, overtaking vehicles almost each lap and climbing to P4 very early on. After pitting for the Mushy tyre I used to be closing the hole to Russell rapidly and I might have had an opportunity to battle with him for P3 on the finish. Even when the Security Automotive got here out, I might have had an incredible alternative on the restart with my new set of Softs, however sadly the race completed because it did and neither situation occurred. I am proud of the efficiency and the comeback, however our tempo I hoped to be on the rostrum in entrance of all of the tifosi. Due to everybody for such nice help right this moment. We are going to proceed to push till the top of the yr!”

Mattia Binotto, Staff Principal: “I consider our efficiency this weekend was higher than that mirrored within the ultimate consequence. After an incredible qualifying in entrance of all our tifosi, within the race we tried to benefit from each alternative, opting to be aggressive with each drivers. General, ending second and fourth is an efficient end result, though there’s naturally a way of remorse at not bringing residence the win after ranging from pole. Nonetheless, right this moment, Max (Verstappen) was merely faster than us. Concerning our efficiency, there’s the attention that now we have made progress in comparison with the previous few races. Nonetheless, it is not sufficient, as there’s nonetheless work to do in terms of our efficiency on Sunday and tyre degradation. There was a big second simply earlier than the race, when the President of the Republic visited our storage. Sergio Mattarella represents all Italians and Italy and it was good to see the mechanics welcome him with a spherical of applause, as a mark of thanks for all his efforts and dedication in direction of our nation.”

Robust, particularly on a day after we might have scored some actually good factors. Nonetheless, there’s a number of positives popping out of this weekend. Some robust issues to attempt to keep it up to subsequent time. So, we’ll hold working laborious and attempt to preserve this momentum for the subsequent few races.”

Daniel Ricciardo (DNF, Engine): “It was good to begin on the entrance and get a good begin. Lando appeared like he had a poor begin so I bought forward of him and it was good to be in third there, however I noticed rapidly Max (Verstappen) was proper behind me and he was clearly on one other stage. I used to be simply attempting to set a rhythm in fourth, however we weren’t fast sufficient. I felt like I used to be doing a very good job to carry off Gasly however did not have rather more to indicate than that. It was a busy race, attempting to carry on, do what I might after which yeah, felt like we bought a bit little bit of a rhythm on the Hards with 10-15 laps to go however then the engine simply switched off out of Flip Six. I needed to pull over right away as a result of it was caught in gear and so I could not roll to a protected place. It might have been good to get some factors however it wasn’t meant to be right this moment.”

Andreas Seidl, Staff Principal: “Combined emotions right this moment in Monza. The optimistic aspect is that the tempo we had this weekend and all through the race was very encouraging, notably given heat climate and a low-downforce configuration have not favoured us prior to now. Then again, a retirement for Daniel is disappointing, costing us beneficial factors within the Constructors’ Championship after he had a really robust weekend, each yesterday in qualifying and in addition right this moment within the race. P7 for Lando, nonetheless, confirms us because the fourth-fastest crew this weekend. That comes from laborious work from your complete crew, right here and again at residence, along with our colleagues at Mercedes HPP. A break now of two weekends earlier than we head to Singapore. Whereas work on subsequent yr’s automobile continues at tempo, in parallel we’ll use this time to analyse all the information we have collected over the triple-header and see how we will take additional steps with the automobile as we head into the ultimate six races of the season.

The automobile was performing effectively, and we had good race tempo, which we weren’t in a position to present with site visitors forward. We’ll refocus and maximise all the things for the remaining races from Singapore and onwards. I am wanting ahead to a bit break to get well from the triple header and totally put together for the flyaway races the place we’ll look to get each vehicles again into the factors in our battle for fourth within the Constructors’ Championship.”

Fernando Alonso (DNF. Water Strain): “It was a difficult race right this moment and we gave the impression to be discovering it troublesome to maintain up with the vehicles forward of us on the straights. We then needed to retire the automobile with a suspected water strain difficulty, however we nonetheless want to analyze why this occurred. We had been combating inside the highest ten and I hoped we might see the chequered flag contained in the factors, however it wasn’t the case right this moment. It has been an extended three weeks; the crew has labored very laborious and deserves a brief break. The excellent news is that we’re nonetheless forward within the battle with McLaren for fourth, so we go to Singapore with the intention to be within the high ten once more.”

Otmar Szafnauer, Chief Working Officer: “We’re actually upset to not have scored factors at right this moment’s Italian Grand Prix with Esteban narrowly lacking out in eleventh and Fernando retiring from the race whereas in a aggressive place. It appears like we misplaced water strain on his automobile, which meant he needed to cease, and we’ll do our regular investigations to search out out the trigger and the answer for the long run. On Esteban’s aspect, he put himself into a robust place throughout his second stint – lapping one-second a lap faster than these forward – and would have been in competition for factors earlier than the ultimate Security Automotive on the finish. It is a pity the race didn’t finish beneath a inexperienced flag, and I am certain we will discover higher methods to enhance the spectacle of racing in these sorts of eventualities. As a crew, we must always replicate on the positives and, if we glance throughout the triple header, we have come away with 26 factors, which is an efficient effort and really beneficial for the championship.

It was a barely irritating race, I feel I will have nightmares about Ricciardo’s rear wing for the subsequent few nights, we tried a couple of various things to attempt to go him and our total efficiency was aggressive, however we simply did not have the tempo to get previous the Mclarens right this moment. We’ll now put together for Singapore, we all know what we have to work on, tips on how to enhance, and we’ll intention to proceed ending within the factors.”

As for us, our race was fairly good. Pierre began from fifth place and completed eighth, he struggled a bit bit with understeer on the Hards, however usually talking – and in addition contemplating the efficiency of the vehicles in entrance of us – this was the absolute best ending place we might obtain right this moment. Yuki began from the again of the grid, due to this fact it was not really easy to overhaul vehicles, however he managed to do that effectively. We referred to as him in through the Security Automotive for the Softs, as we thought he would have a very good likelihood with the brand new tyres, if the race was restarted, however sadly this was not the case. He might solely end in P14, however usually, Yuki had a very good race weekend. General, we scored 4 factors right here, which is optimistic as now we have closed the hole to Haas within the Championship, so we now must hold this momentum, from Singapore in a couple of weeks, till the top of the season.”

Jody Egginton, Technical Director: “It is good to return away with factors right this moment, with Pierre driving a strong race. On the identical time, it is irritating that with Yuki we couldn’t flip the robust efficiency he has proven right here right into a consultant grid place and a greater battle for factors, because of penalties. Concerning Pierre’s race, the battle with the McLarens was good, however with two towards one and Ricciardo proving tough to go, the McLaren technique created some respiration house for Norris, which we couldn’t get well, that means we got here residence in P8 with Pierre. In abstract, it is good to be scoring factors once more, however we have to be getting each vehicles up there with a purpose to enhance our Constructors’ place, so clearly this is without doubt one of the key areas to be targeted on.”

With 14 laps to go, we retired Lance’s automobile as a precaution to save lots of engine mileage. Sebastian’s race was comparatively brief when he was pressured to retire on lap 11 with a suspected ERS difficulty.

Driver of the day makes me so completely satisfied and I am more than happy and grateful that I bought given the chance and I grabbed it with each palms.

The intention was to take care of the place we began in and we had a combating likelihood, however it wasn’t meant to be.

Dave Robson, Senior Race Engineer: “Nyck drove a superb race right this moment and was in a position to defend when required in addition to conserving fixed strain on the vehicles forward. We gave him an bold technique which might push his Mushy and Medium tyres to the restrict. The late security automobile provided some safety within the ultimate laps and in addition helped him handle a scorching entrance brake disc. Nonetheless, he bought himself into that place by driving extraordinarily effectively, managing the beginning and the pit cease expertly and by combating laborious utilizing a automobile and setup that he had solely pushed for 34 laps yesterday. He did no excessive gasoline working previous to the laps to the grid and had by no means pushed a full stint on these tyres in racing situations. The work that he and his crew put in in a single day was glorious and he deserved this end result. Nicholas had a tough begin to the race, dropping out on the first chicane earlier than mounting a very good restoration exhibiting respectable tempo on the Laborious tyre to get again into the battle with Stroll and Tsunoda, Schumacher and Bottas. Sadly, he could not get well all of the loss from the opening laps and completed in fifteenth.
