“Overall, it’s a strong result for the team, finishing P5 to get the points in Monaco. You’ll always be disappointed if you qualify on Pole and then can’t finish it off in the race with a podium, but we’ve secured three valuable points from today’s qualifying session too. The racing we are seeing at the moment is competitive and aggressive so surviving the race alone is a positive. We now move on to Jakarta where we’ll be looking to be as strong as we have been this weekend in Monaco."
