"It (the title battle) is going to go right down to the end of the season, and I hope there's nothing mechanical that will come in between our sheer battle through ability."
Steiner wants rethink of 'unfair' penalty process (Motorsport)

"Whatever the ultimate rationale, and doubtless a complex combination of factors are at play here, it is impossible not to be thrilled at the chance to see Alonso take on the challenge of the Brickyard, and it is a bold decision from his team to allow him to do so – a new direction for them both and a shock that deserves not a little awe."

"The harder bit will be when conditions change and he has to adapt to them. At the Speedway it can be from the wind changing direction, a small rise in temperature or even humidity. You have to adapt to those changes in set-up and driving style."
