Abu Dhabi GP: The story behind my weekend
“There are a lot of positives to take from today. The pace was competitive, especially in dirty air, and I was racing cars that I haven’t been racing against all year so that’s been nice.
“I definitely don’t think I was at fault for the incident with Magnussen, it was maybe more of a racing incident.
“The incident was a shame as our pace was strong and we were racing out of position against cars that we were quite a bit quicker.
“Being further up in qualifying would have made a difference, but it’s nice to get racing again.
“I take the confidence in that pace from the upgrade and I feel that the season is getting back on track and we can make a proper start now.”
