Race One Top Three Quotes

Heikki Kovalainen - 1st: "We planned our strategy to be adaptable to what was happening on the track. I got stuck in traffic straight away, so we stopped early. I had a good start, and ended up ninth or tenth on the first lap, and that was half the game. We had a good stop, and the car was very, very good straight out of the pits. I was struggling with grip towards the end, which we expected, and Giorgio was very fast. But I kept myself clean, didn't make any mistakes, and eventually he gave up."

Giorgio Pantano - 2nd: "Second isn't what I wanted today. We didn't have any grip in the first laps, so we changed tyres and then the car came good. We were quicker than Kovalainen, but he was quick too and there was no way past him. I stayed as close as I could but it was difficult."

Nico Rosberg - 3rd: "I was so surprised. I was really pushing in the beginning to get up, and then after a couple of laps it was 'you're P3, chill out' so we just considered the gap in the back, I didn't care about the ones in front anymore. I just thought we're third - let's stick with that."
