"I have seen in football how a referee took money to throw a game and all the suspect results were annulled. In Italy, Juventus were relegated. But here (in Formula One) they just sent Briatore home. I don't get it and I don't think it was right."
Bernie Ecclestone: "Now you can understand why I complain about Silverstone. [Suzuka have] got on with it. That was one of the conditions that we came back here."
Nick Heidfeld: "[Suzuka] is a relatively long circuit. Therefore you have a lot of different corners. The circuit has got a nice flow to it and especially the esses are special. Each lap you arrive there, you are looking forward to that. It is medium speed – definitely more than 200kph – and it is just a great feeling if you get them right."
Honda chief executive Takanobu Ito: "It would be difficult to re-enter Formula One racing under current business conditions," he said in an interview ahead of Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix. But in the future, if it became a competition based on fuel efficiency and performance, as well as pose a technical challenge, then we would surely want to take part. I do not see that happening in the near future."
"Ferrari has adopted the same policy with Massa and Kimi Raikkonen in recent years, and Domenicali said Alonso's arrival would not change this situation." When asked how the team would deal with having two strong drivers, he replied: "The same way we controlled Felipe and Kimi for the last two years. This is the way we manage the team. This is the way that drivers coming to our team have to respect the rules.
"GP3 test carFormula 1 driver Mark Webber is to enter a team in the new GP3 Series in partnership with Red Bull boss Christian Horner's Arden organisation."
Tadashi Yamashina: "We will participate for now. We have to consider a variety of things in relation to our core business. Our participation is unclear, depending on our financial results." That phrase 'core business' sounds very ominous to me.
"Former world rally champion Vatanen will be joined at the conference in Amman by Prince Feisal Al Hussein, the influential Jordan Motorsport chairman and Vatanen’s choice as vice-president (sport) if he beats former Ferrari team principal Jean Todt in the election on Oct 23. Max Mosley is stepping down after four terms of office."
"The council did not vote unanimously. All 26 members were not there, the figure was 20, and there were proxies. A substantial majority were in favour of punishing Briatore but Bernie [Ecclestone] was in a minority."
"One detail marked in the image however are two small pointy extensions on both sides of the diffuser. Red Bull carefully copied that from McLaren and clearly found the additions efficient enough to use them."

'Beaulah Schoeman, managing director of Motorsport South Africa, the country's FIA-affiliated motorsport regulator, was very critical of Todt's remarks. […] "Mr Todt's comment questioning 'whether people in South Africa care (about) what is happening in F1', is a perfect example of his arrogance and the contempt with which African countries have been – and are being treated – by the FIA and confirms that if he is elected, this will continue."'
