Last quote by Otmar Szafnauer

It's a great achievement for the team but what we've not got to do is utilise the fact that we've done it to our advantage. We've got to think differently in the next two races and do experiments or do things differently that will help for next year at the expense of this year, because this year doesn't matter.feedback

Otmar Szafnauer has most recently been quoted in an article called Force India won't allow drivers to race until it secures fourth place. Otmar Szafnauer said, “After fourth is secure we will sit down with everybody and see if they can actually race again. The team always comes first. If they can prove to us after this year that they can sensibly race together, then I am sure we will consider that. [Nico] Hulkenberg and Checo sensibly raced together and they didn't crash into each other. If we had that scenario again then there is no reason to always have team orders.”. Otmar Szafnauer has been quoted a grand total of 15 times in 9 articles.

The thing you've got to remember too is that Checo was all the time behind Ricciardo saving his tyres. He's a smart racer and if he knows he can't overtake, he's saving his tyres for the opportunity. And in his mind the opportunity he was going to have was lapped traffic, which was just about to happen. So he said 'give me a chance and when the lapped traffic comes up I will try and if I can't then I'll swap' but by that time it was too late. No driver wants to swap. We have more information than they do, so we've got to make that decision. We never asked him.feedback

The option we gave Sergio was to take three laps back and try to overtake and if that didn't happen then swap. In those three laps he tried it and the Ferraris caught him. So now the swap with the Ferraris there was impossible.feedback

If we re-run the race now, hindsight is a wonderful thing and we have more information. What I would have done is perhaps swap them earlier when the Ferraris were pitting because then it's easy, you can have a go and still get your tyres back up to temperature and there's no risk from behind if it doesn't happen and you still have time to swap back. But we didn't do that and we started discussing it a bit late and after that it was too late.feedback
