“All weekend we had quite good pace on race rubber," the South African rider who is placed seventh on the rides' standings said. 
"But in qualifying we kept trying to make a competitive lap-time to be a bit further up. I had a really good start today but unfortunately in Turn 5 I had a bit of contact and lost five positions.
"It put me off the back of the front group and although I caught up again I made a massive mistake with my tyre choice."
