''What a fantastic result! These past few race weekends haven't been easy for us, so I'm incredibly happy to have won today. It was a very emotional moment for me. I've had quite a tough time in the last three races, and so, am really pleased to have been able to hit back after yesterday which was pretty difficult,'' an emotional De Vries revealed in Mercedes' press release.
