Although pleased with the win for team mate Robert Wickens, Paffett felt the race day strategy for his EURONICS Mercedes AMG just didn’t work out. After qualifying fifth on Saturday, race day was declared wet and started behind the safety car. With Paffett’s Hankook tyres dropping off early on in the race, the team had to prepare a fresh set of tyres; “Unfortunately, the track dried up too quickly for my purposes, and I had to pit for a second time. So our strategy did not work out but at least Robert got the win and upheld the illustrious Mercedes record at this circuit.”

The collision with Martin Tomczyk caused Paffett more trouble in the race, after contact going into Grundig corner in tricky conditions. However Tomczyk has apologised and blamed the incident with Paffett on himself, saying, “The collision with Gary Paffett was my fault. I am very sorry. We had just switched to options and I misjudged the braking point. The conditions were very tough, but it was the same for everyone.”

Paffett is looking ahead and hoping for better things to come in the Moscow race which will begin on the 12th-13th July.
