8th June, 2014 (F1 Plus / Rosie Baillie) - Adrian Sutil said he was pleased with his performance at the Canadian Grand Prix after finishing 13th.
“It was a long race with many incidents. We were able to keep out of all the trouble from start to finish.” Sutil said.
“Hence, it was a good team performance, which I am very pleased of. I am also satisfied with my own performance.”
The German driver said Sauber gave it their all and had to accept his 13th place.
“However, all this only led to a 13th position, which we have to accept at this point in time. At least we gave everything today.”
Teammate Esteban Gutierrez was forced to retire a few laps before the end after losing power.
The Mexican driver said he struggled with the tyres throughout the race and found it hard to fight off cars.
“t was a very challenging race! Especially in the beginning, I was struggling so much with the tyres.” Gutierrez said.
“It was hard to manage them and to drive consistently. I fought with some cars, but it was extremely difficult to keep them behind.”
“When I pitted, I got a fresh set of soft tires, which I drove until the end. With this second set of soft tires, the car felt much better, I even enjoyed driving. But then we lost power, and I had to retire.”
