DANIEL RICCIARDO, Finish Position: 3rd, Start Position: 6th
“It’s always nice to get a podium for sure. Especially after yesterday when you’re on the tail-end of that Top 6, then all you think of is moving forward, so I honestly believed we could be better than sixth today. Max had a problem and then Kimi made his mistake with the yellow flag so we gained a few positions but I think after the first stint our pace improved a lot. We showed a more respectable pace today and then we had an opportunity under the safety car with the re-start and took the most of that, so I’m really happy with the result. I definitely feel for Max. He’s had a pretty up and down season and most of the time it was out of his control so of course that’s frustrating especially for this to happen at his home race.”

Carlos Sainz (STR12-02, Car 55)
Race: Pos. 10th
“A fun race full of great battles! I enjoyed it a lot out there today and it’s great to end up scoring a point that we were not expecting to get this weekend! On Friday we had really good pace, but after yesterday’s qualifying we were not so sure we could achieve this today. We went for an alternative strategy after a difficult start – I lost a couple of places due to a bit of traffic into Turn 1 – and from then onwards we managed to do a good recovery. There was a lot of action going on throughout the whole race and, as a team, we did the right things at the right time. Today’s point is a big reward – it tastes like glory! – and I leave Belgium satisfied with the result!”

BELGIAN GRAND PRIX – SPA-FRANCORCHAMPS 27 AUGUST

Maurizio Arrivabene: “Going into this race, on paper at least, it didn’t seem like one that would suit us particularly well. Despite that, we proved able to fight for the win right down to the final lap. Seb drove a great race and at the restart after the Safety Car, it really came very close. It’s a shame Kimi had to take a penalty, which cost him almost half a minute, but he managed to recover with a nice passing move at the restart. The SF70H proved to be very competitive and the team, both at the track and in Maranello, worked with concentration and determination. However, we still need to improve. The next GP will be in Monza where we will be meeting up with all our fans.”

2017 Belgian Grand Prix
“FOR A FEW LAPS WE DARED TO DREAM OF PROGRESS, BUT UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS SHORT-LIVED”
A frustrating day for McLaren Honda at the Belgian Grand Prix. Both drivers made excellent starts – Stoffel moving from P20 to P17 and Fernando from P10 to P7 on lap one. However, despite initial optimism, the pecking order was quickly established, and neither were able to capitalise on their early promise.
