Back to Sebastian. You seem a little bit surprised by the
ultimate qualifying. After qualifying the pace to Mercedes
was a little bit down but you’re right in this championship,
you’re leaving this grand prix leading the world
SV: Yeah, it’s a long year; I’m not really looking at that. As I
said, I’m really enjoying, the car has been a pleasure. It was
very good in qualifying and I was a bit down because the
gap was so big. I think we could have been a bit closer. But
something inside me told me we have a good car and we
can do well. Right from the first lap I felt the car was there
and yeah, I think the Easter hunt was on. They were hiding
some eggs but it looks like we found them. No, really, really
happy. Big thank you to the team, they have been working
incredibly hard. The guy that has been up here, Matteo,
works day and night at the track, in the factory. So really a
lot of commitment from every single one and it’s great to
see everything coming together.
Well, we can hear the marshals who have been supporting
the grand prix celebrating by revving a motorbike here.
You’ve got to say we have a tremendous welcome here in
Bahrain, so it’s one your better grands prix?
SV: Well, I guess. I’ve been reasonably successful the last
couple of years. I love the trophy, I think it’s one of the most
beautiful trophies we have, so when I crossed the line I was
really happy because I knew we were going to get it, so I
think we can leave here very happy. Not yet, because we’ve
got the test next week, but yeah for now we just enjoy.
Are you doing the test?
You’re relentless aren’t you?
SV: Well, I thought halfway through the race that I’m really
looking forward already next time to jump in the car, which
is in two days, so I’m looking forward to it.
