"We already have had a good result, being able to modify the engines during the season, when it looked like everything had to remain frozen. I consider that a first victory."
"We’re moving the ‘snake’, the very fast corners, to the inside. We’re almost copying it, because it was successful, but we had no safety, no run-off."
"There is a good opportunity that should be coming on its way very shortly. It should be in the next two or three weeks,"
"In my mind I have the benchmark of a £99 admission ticket. I think that's what customers deserve."
"This year, I will be doing a lot of work in the simulator and this first introduction to it was very useful. I know Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen well and I can’t wait to work with them."
"Even comparing it to the teams that traditionally had good aerodynamics, like Red Bull, Mercedes are still significantly quicker. We've got a lot to learn from them."
"A micrometre (or micron) is 0.001 mm, that's about 25 times smaller than the eye can generally see, luckily we have some pretty impressive bits of kit that allow us to measure these things in astonishing detail."
