Britain Sunday quotes: Williams

Bruno Senna - 9th: It was a good race for us today, despite starting from further back than we would have liked, and we gained a few positions on the first lap. We then had a tough race fighting against the Force India's and the Sauber's. I'm happy with the result though as things are looking up and if we can qualify a bit higher in the next race, we will be looking to push for more points in the future.

Pastor Maldonado - 16th: Our race was compromised after the incident with Perez. I'm disappointed because the car was looking much more consistent after the pit stop and towards the end of the race. I hope to get my championship back on track in the next few races and put the team up at the top again.

Laurent Debout, Renault Sport F1 team support leader: Good for Bruno to get two points here today, particularly with the overtaking move on Hulkenberg at the end of the race, but Pastor's race was obviously compromised early on. Engine-wise we had no issues all weekend, introducing new units at the start of the event and running pretty much to plan.

Mark Gillan, Chief Operations Engineer: Both Pastor and Bruno had very good starts and were pushing hard in the initial stages of the race. Unfortunately Pastor was involved in a racing incident with Perez on his second stint which lead to a premature pitstop for a damaged rear-right tyre which ultimately compromised his race. After the race the stewards issued Pastor with a reprimand which as a team we accept. Bruno ran an excellent race and despite a small spin in the first stint finished in ninth having attacked and then defended his position very well in the closing stages of the race.
