(cafetheology.org) – Starting from third place, the sixth place in the finish line: The Italian Grand Prix on Sunday was a disappointment for Force India pilot Esteban Ocon – and still a success, because he was in Monza was the winner of the secret "best-of-the-rest" rating of the teams beyond the top three teams. The Frenchman himself speaks of "mixed feelings" because he has set himself a podium to his goal: "Did not work out, but we've picked the best." The Ferrari and the Red Bull were just too strong, without the word Mercedes at all in the mouth. "We did not have the pace to do it, but today there was no failure or anything else, so we did not have any luck," he says – forgetting Uncle Agree Max Verstappen. Because Ocon was overtaken more than he himself did for action, his classification also nods out: "It was not the best race of my career." The bosses see differently: "He did not make any mistakes," praises Force India Otmar Szafnauer the Youngster for his second-best Formula One result so far. "As fast as the car was, he could keep Kimi Rikknen in check for a while, but it did not last forever. We were hoping he would stay ahead of Daniel Ricciardo, but his strategy was good." Team-mate Sergio Perez had to finished in ninth place and could no longer benefit from the duel of the Williams drivers in the final round just before him. Szafnauer says that a position ahead of the Mexicans would have flown after the start, when a collision with Felipe Massa came: "His underbody was damaged, it had an influence on his performance, without the thing certainly would be able been a bit better off. "Force India blames the Williams competitor for the incident. He had left the road and he had rammed Perez. Finally, the Pinken were convinced to have been the prime midfielder in Monza. Ocon would not have moved away from Lance Stroll because he'd saved fuel, while Perez would have had a ten-second gap on Massa after his pit stop. "Perhaps we should have taken him one or two laps earlier," regrets Szafnauer.
