“Only five teams have a say in the running of Formula One – we’ll lose more teams if we carry on like this. If there had been cost control and more equitable distribution of the prize money maybe Caterham and Marussia wouldn’t have failed.”
“Once the stewards have officially been notified that only 18 cars are in the Austin field they will have the option to decree that four cars are eliminated in Q1 and Q2.”
“They would supply a third car to someone else so if, for example, Sauber disappeared, a team could do a deal with Sauber. Ferrari could say, ‘we will give you a car, all that goes with it, and we want you to put this sponsor on it. You have your own sponsors but we want you to include this one as well and we want you to take this driver’. The team wouldn’t have to go under then would they? If Red Bull decided they would give a car to Caterham for example that could solve their problem.”
“Marussia is losing the chance to score more points and earn more prize money. However, if it manages to stay in ninth place by the end of the year it will still get its money.”
“It is not easy to be his [Alonso’s] team-mate, and for sure the problem Kimi is having [this year] is in his head.”
“Questions have always been asked but now answers must be given as to the true story behind a selection process that saw the seemingly worthy applications of Epsilon Euskadi, N Technology, Prodrive and Lola, amongst others, overlooked in favour of Campos (which became HRT), Lightspeed (which became Lotus/Caterham), USF1 (which never even made a race), and Manor Racing (which became Virgin and then Marussia.)”

Happy birthday to Crm, Gwen and Jeff Bird!
On this day in F1
Sebastian Vettel clinched his fourth consecutive drivers’ championship title in the Indian Grand Prix on this day last year.
The race was held for the third and possibly last time. Having been dropped this year it is not on the 2015 F1 calendar either.
