Lotus F1 Team took 7th spot at 2015 Austrian Grand Prix. Pastor Maldonado stood 7th after completing 70 laps thus getting 6 points. Unfortunately, Romain Grosjean got retired after 34th lap due to gearbox fault.
Pastor said, “It was a good battle with Verstappen despite losing some grip and downforce,” he said. “I saw some areas where he wasn’t as quick as me and I got the chance to overtake. It was close at times but we both had respect and we had a clean, good battle.”
“At turn three the gears wouldn’t engage anymore and I went straight on, I was eighth and making progress,” said Romain. “It was an unrelated problem to yesterday. My pace was good and I think I could have been in the top seven if I continued.”
