"The overall long-term interests of the Championship will determine which candidate is selected."
"The family said they would analyse the report 'to evaluate the next legal steps to claim the corresponding civil compensation from those responsible'."
"We will do whatever is needed to make sure India is back. There are no added challenges to the event."
"Refuelling and customer cars are not strategies. A strategy articulates a road map of how you are going to get somewhere.."
"Stoffel is doing a really good job and he deserves to get to Formula One. I think there's something wrong if he doesn't get to Formula One."
"We were never expecting Monaco to be one of our best tracks, but we never expected our performance to be this bad."
"It was with no great surprise that I learned of Ecclestone’s lack of enthusiasm for a Michelin return. The financial aspects apart, it is clear that the company has no interest in constructing tyres ‘dumbed down’ in the mistaken belief of the powers-that-be that this creates the sort of motor racing the public wants to see."
"Even around Monaco, 6s per lap would be enough to get you overtaken on-track against a grippy new option-tyred Ferrari in the remaining eight laps."
"The use of advertising for alcohol is not linked to the FIA."
"Where are Lawrence, Jolie, Theron, Cotillard and Johansson? Surely F1 can do better than a bit part player in the Kardashians?"

Nissan has announced that one of the GT-R LM NISMO LMP1 cars it has entered for this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours will use a special livery designed to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the pole position lap driven in the car by F1 racer Mark Blundell. The 1,100bhp machine hit a top speed of 366kph (227mph) despite that year’s Le Mans race being the first in which two chicanes had been added to the Mulsanne Straight.
The number 21 car will be raced by Tsugio Matsuda, Lucas Ordonez and Mark Shulzhitskiy.
Comment of the day
The stewards had surprisingly little to say about the crash which turned the Monaco Grand Prix on its head:
Why did we only learn about Lotus’s evidence on Wednesday? How about a bit of communication from the so-called FIA and stewards, beyond the useless ‘Car 33 caused a collision so we’re giving him a grid penalty’?

Happy birthday to Chris, Hughes, Silverkeg and Danny11!
On this day in F1
Kimi Raikkonen was on course for a third consecutive win in the 2005 season ten years ago today when a flat-spotted tyre destroyed his suspension as he began his final lap in the lead of the European Grand Prix.
That handed victory at the Nurburgring to Fernando Alonso.
