The Istanbul race will not bring any good memories for Mattias. With a perfect start, overtaking to drivers it looked like Mattis would give the Mercedes drivers a hard time. Instead he was passed by them one lap later. With two bad pitstops and tyres that didn’t last Mattias fell down from 6th to 12th position.
“We have had 25 races without any problems and this race we make all the mistakes we can. It’s not fun when it happens and I’m dissapointed. Now I wish I’ll have a good race at Hockenheim and try my best to please the fans.”
