"Comparing only the fastest times that each team demonstrated sees Brawn GP still leading the field, with an eight tenths advantage over their nearest challenger Williams, with Toyota in third."
Martin Brundle: "All I hope is that if young drivers are challenged to go for it, they don't then get penalised for having a go, which we have seen in the past.”
Michael Schumacher: "I doubt the same goes for the new rules given out on such a late moment prior to the season – something which to me is really, well, astonishing, as in all the years, when the majority wanted to have a rule change for a good reason, they always said that would not be possible in a short term or so late before a season. I cannot imagine those changes to help F1, especially regarding the new system to find the champion. I cannot see how it makes sense to eventually have a world champion who has less points than the driver coming in second, even if I also think it is a good move to try to strengthen the winner's position."
"We have both been invited to the Governor’s Cocktail Reception, but Monsieur Bourdais (as he says I can call him) promised he would let me go alone, so I could do all the interviews and get all the publicity, as it is my first grand prix. He really is a gentleman. That must be why he chooses to live in Switzerland. I think I’m going to enjoy being a Formula One driver."
Mark Webber: "I'm not too bothered about it because I think it will change. It's like saying Coventry can play with 30 players against Manchester United with 11. Or in tennis, we'll lower the net for you because you don't have as good a racket, and we'll put it back up again for the other guy."
“It seems to be 'that Formula 1 wants to die,” the Toyota star told Italian newspaper La Stampa, “and we will all have to go and race in some other championship.'
"The new points system would have changed past champions – this doesn't matter. Previous champions took advantage of the points system in place at the time they competed, so judging their results using a different system isn't a valid argument."
"Lewis Hamilton has been voted the UK’s favourite brand ambassador in a poll of 2,000 consumers undertaken by UTalkMarketing."
