What they say
Steiner was asked whether he was pleased that the Australian Grand Prix proved the team’s testing pace was real.
That’s the thing which keeps the spirits up. In Barcelona testing people were still doubting if we were real or not, [we showed] we were here. We qualified well but I think we raced stronger than we qualified.
I think we are here and we go to Bahrain with our heads up and try to minimise these mistakes changing on the pit stops.
