Pat Symonds: F1 still doesn't fully understand overtaking (ESPN)
"If we took an aerodynamic group out of any of the teams and sent them away for a year and gave them plenty of money and plenty of facilities and gave them nothing to do other than understand overtaking, you would have some very interesting answers."
Pat Symonds Q&A: P2 a tough ask for Williams - but not impossible! (F1)
"I think we would be proud if we maintained third. The fact is to finish third in the championship is a good thing in any given year."
Bottas: FW38 a bigger improvement than FW37 was (Crash)
"It was pretty obvious mainly in slow speed and medium speed corners we were missing cornering performance so I think we have improved that. If it is enough I don't know but it feels better."
Toro Rosso used guesswork for engine (Autosport)
"We made CAD models from pictures. It sounds crude but what else could you do?"
McLaren set for boost from filming day running (Motorsport)
"Honda fitted a brand new engine for the final day but, although Fernando Alonso was able to get out of the pits early on for installation laps, a coolant leak in a tricky place meant he never got back out again."
McLaren is ‘a sleeping giant’ - Ryan (F1i)
"They haven’t had a good few years, and last year was particularly difficult I would say, but they’ve got the potential to get it right."
McLaren & Me: Patrick Tambay (McLaren)
"After Monza I went down to see the Old Man with Forghieri, to excuse myself from signing up before talking to him. Forghieri translated the whole conversation, and at the end the Old Man said in French, 'Patrick what a stupid mistake you made. You would have been World Champion with us, and you would have made a lot more money...'"
