"Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes boss has ruled out 'playing PlayStation' with the Formula 1 results to gift Lewis Hamilton a payback victory for their massive Monaco Grand Prix gaffe."
"If Bernie has doubts about my way of doing, he should ask the team."
"It’s not a winter test it’s a whole year test and all of my mind, all my focus is on 2016, so we will try to go through 2015 with maximum learning."
"He was not in the position to overtake, he was not even near to go inside. He was behind, so to be honest, it was too much what happened."
"If I have to give him some homework then he has to write 100 times 'I have to be better in qualifying'."
"I experienced my own share of strategic mishaps, if not anything quite as blatant as Sunday, and it is hard not to let it affect your trust in the team. The Canadian Grand Prix in 1997 springs to mind."
"Even if the (Strategy) Group comes up with a good idea – and it never does – it has to be confirmed by the F1 commission and the world council. So let’s get rid of it now."

Comment of the day
No surprises about which subject has dominated the discussion since Sunday’s race:
All the comments here suggest that Mercedes should have rectified their mistake while at the same time they didn’t realise they had made a mistake. They didn’t know they made a mistake until Hamilton was back out on track, simple.
This other argument which people are saying its the drivers’ fault is also interesting, yes Hamilton could overrule the team, but being inside the cockpit of a car out on the track doesn’t afford one to know every single gap.

Happy birthday to Lustigson and Zazeems!
On this day in F1
Ex-F1 driver Danny Sullivan scored his famous “spin and win” in the 1985 Indianapolis 500 on this day 30 years ago. Sullivan completed a 360-degree spin at over 200mph while trying to pass Mario Andretti, but recovered and went on to win the race.
