Paddy Lowe – A Tough Day
Paddy Lowe believed the team missed an opportunity this weekend to score some much needed points after Massa was knocked out the race…..
Paddy Lowe, Chief Technical Officer admitted that the team had a difficult weekend after first loosing Massa after he caught a puncture from an on track scuff with Fernando Alonso.
As well as missing out on the points thanks to a 16th place for newbie Lance Stroll, he did iterate that the team are not annoyed in anyway especially considering it was the young Candians first race and he is so new to the sport.
Moreover, it was just annoying they should lose Massa so soon considering the top three leading teams all lost drivers that race.
“It was tough day, particularly with the various incidents at the front, making it a bad day to not be up there in the points,” Paddy Revealed.
“Felipe had a fantastic start and gained several places, but unfortunately he came into contact with Fernando, which caused a front-right puncture. That ruined his race.”
“His pace in clean air was very strong: He was matching Daniel lap-for-lap on his first stint. I think we had the potential to have a very good result.”
“For Lance, he finished the race without incident and he was able to learn more about tyre management and race craft. We hope he can continue to progress in Monaco.”
