Timo Glock:

N After the race, Timo Glock burst into great cheers in the Virgin Motorhome. Responsible for this was not his good race, but the first World Cup goal in Germany by Lukas Podolski. Shortly before the flight home there was still a bit of a good mood. In the race, however, the German had to give up 20 laps before the end. 'We had a problem with the hydraulics on the power steering,' Glock explained afterwards.

'The start was okay. Some HRT car then thundered into my back in turn eight. Then the whole diffuser was broken at the back. The device was inoperable. That cost me over a second. ' The tire situation didn't make things any easier for the German: 'My car literally ate the tires.' Apart from the four pit stops, the race was otherwise very boring. In the next race, Glock is hoping for improvement: 'In Valencia we have another mechanical update. We have to see what that brings.'

Nico H├╝lkenberg:

Nico H├╝lkenberg was behind dejected from the race. 'It was a lot going on today. But unfortunately it wasn't successful,' the Williams driver drew an unhappy conclusion. It looked pretty good in qualifying and at the start of the race. 'I was ninth after the first lap. Then came the incident with Adrian Sutil. That shouldn't have happened.' Hulkenberg hit his compatriot when braking the hairpin on the rear tire. 'He had the soft tires on it and had to fight. I was behind and much faster. I lost downforce when braking. My tires blocked. I tried everything, but it wasn't quite enough,' said Hulkenberg, justifying the collision /p>

Overall, however, the German tried to highlight the positive things: 'We have taken a step forward, which unfortunately is not reflected in the race result.' The Grand Prix was also a good lesson for the rookie personally: 'You always take something with you for the future. That is positive. At least I finished the race. But of course we would have preferred to take points.'

Nico Rosberg:

Nico Rosberg started from tenth on the grid and came in sixth. No wonder that the Mercedes driver was in a good mood afterwards: 'Sixth place is probably the best result we could achieve, so I'm very happy.' With the rest of the weekend, the boy couldSilver Arrows star not to be satisfied: 'It was a difficult weekend with poor qualifying yesterday and bad luck on the first lap today, where I lost a lot of places due to the chaos in front of me.'

Rosberg fell initially back to 13th place, but then started a furious race to catch up: 'I was able to overtake well and thanks to good pace I won a few positions. We had a great strategy, but it was really difficult to take care of the tires. I drove very carefully to to control the graining, but every time I looked in the rearview mirror, the tires looked worse. Fortunately, the hard tires lasted until the end after the second stop and I was able to score good points for the World Cup in sixth place. '
