Adrian Sutil speaks about how the race was for him:
I would have liked to finish the race as we were in a good position. We were last but we were fuelled up and had no more pit stop plans and I think the others would have had to come in and we could have done quite well, but that's how it is. There was quite a lot of water and it was getting dark in the end so it was the right decision to stop the race.
On whether they were the worst conditions he has ever driven in:
Yes you can say that! The view was not a problem as there was no car in front of me but I was swimming - it was like a boat on the river, it was impossible to turn in. It was just completely aquaplaning. It was never frightening, you have to go a bit slower, but it was really bad, really difficult - impossible to drive actually.
On whether it was impossible to judge the conditions properly. He took a tire gamble and then the rain didn't come quickly enough:
We came in four or five laps too early but then it rained so heavily. We gambled but we had nothing to lose - that was what we had to do. There was lightening coming down and you could have expected a really big rain shower, but then when the rain came in, for sure our tires were not in the best shape. They were pretty grained so it was a gamble but it didn't really help this time.
From Giancarlo Fisichella on how his race went generally:
I think the main problem was the wrong call to change tires. We changed tires too early, at least three of four laps too early, and then when I was running with the extreme wet tires it was dry so we destroyed the tires. Once we had a lot of standing water on the circuit, the tires were completely slick and I couldn't keep the car on the ground so that was a problem.
On whether what was the potential with the car if the rain had come immediately:
It's difficult to say. The pace was not too bad considering the fuel load at the beginning of the race and I was keeping a good pace, close to Piquet, Bourdais and Nakajima, so it was looking good but then we made a mistake with the strategy.
On whether Fisichella will be reflecting on this until he gets to Shanghai for the next race:
Well you know sometimes there is an opportunity to do well and sometimes not. I think today anything could have happened with these weather conditions.It was maybe good to keep one car in one direction and one in the different direction, but it's experience so let's see for the next race.
