"‘I don’t think people are saying that seriously. Who would possibly say that? “Does Jenson want to win the title or not?” It is a pretty silly question, isn’t it? ‘Why the **** am I here? That is not a question, is it? In reality that is not a question.'" Button gives an angry response to a question about whether he “really wants to win the championship”.

Heikki Kovalainen: "I think first of all this weekend we are not going to be running the short wheel base car on both sides. I think there was some uncertainty about it in Valencia, so the team’s decided not to run the spec that Lewis (Hamilton) had in Valencia. I was happy with the long wheel base car and all the preparations have been with the long wheel base. It would not have been a big advantage for me as I am lighter and I can set up the car and move the weight around easier than Lewis, so they are the facts why we are not running them. I don’t think we even have it here with us this weekend, so I don’t even think we will be testing it."
