Sebastian Vettel – 1st: “It was good fun at the beginning with some very tight wheel to wheel racing. At the start you don’t know if you will be quick or not, as everyone is a bit all over the place, including yourself! It’s important to get to the front; we saw at the last race that if you get stuck behind someone then it does have an impact on tyre wear and today it was important to make use of the tyres we had saved from qualifying yesterday. I love to be in clean air, so I was pushing hard to get into the lead and, with the speed we had mid-race, it was quite comfortable today

Michele Pirro insists joining Ducati as a test rider does not represent a backward step even though it will leave him without a full-time race programme for the first time in more than a decade. The Italian competed for Gresini in MotoGP’s CRT class in 2012, effectively finishing best of the rest behind Aspar duo Aleix Espargaro and Randy de Puniet.

The Ferrari driver arrives at the season finale 13 points behind the Red Bull driver after they finished third and second respectively in the previous race in the United States.

Lotus boss Eric Boullier says his team never had any doubts that Kimi Raikkonen would deliver in his return to Formula 1. The 2007 world champion left the sport at the end of the 2009 season to compete in the World Rally Championship, later experimenting with NASCAR as well.
November 7th, 2012
Renault believes a calibration problem with fuelling equipment is the most likely explanation as to why Sebastian Vettel did not have enough petrol in his car for qualifying for the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Vettel was stripped of his third place grid slot and thrown to the back of the grid at the Yas Marina circuit after post-qualifying checks discovered he only had 850ml of fuel on board his car after Q3 – whereas the rules demand a minimum of one-litre be present for a sample. At the time, both Red Bull and Renault were convinced that enough fuel had gone into the car for his final run, so neither could offer a clear answer in Abu Dhabi about why there was not sufficient present for the FIA tests.

Defeated International Superstars Series title contender Tonio Liuzzi has apologised to his CAAL Racing team for getting mixed up with “dangerous driver” Andrea Larini in the finale at Pergusa – which cost him the crown.

Technical director James Allison believes that the benefits of the new concept will increase over the forthcoming races, as the team understands them better.
October 12th, 2012
Nine-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb says he starts next weekend’s Rally d’Italia as determined as ever to secure victory in Sardinia.
October 12th, 2012
Lotus’s revamped E20 took to the track in Korea on Friday morning, featuring a raft of updates including a Coanda-effect exhaust. The team is keeping its fingers crossed that the updates, which it hopes will deliver a laptime improvement of around three tenths of a second, will help it get back on the podium for the first time since the Belgian Grand Prix. Lotus’s switch to the downwashed exhausts comes after windtunnel tests showed the design performed better than the concept the outfit had run since the start of the season.

Bruno Senna is confident that he can deliver the strong end to the season that he needs to have a chance of securing his Formula 1 future. The Brazilian has struggled to match Williams team-mate Pastor Maldonado’s performances this year despite being only eight points behind him in the drivers’ championship
October 11th, 2012
Kimi Raikkonen is not bothered about where he finishes in the standings this year if he is not world champion. The Finn, who returned to Formula 1 with Lotus at the start of the year, is third in the drivers’ table 37 points behind leader Fernando Alonso , having finished on the podium six times so far in the campaign. “It doesn’t matter if I’m second or tenth,” he said
September 9th, 2012
Formula 1 teams are facing a tough call on tyre strategy for the Italian Grand Prix because of the low degradation experienced so far, claim leading team bosses. Although the small drop off in performance should point towards an easy one-stop strategy, the situation actually appears quite different because of the risk of wearing tyres out

Heikki Kovalainen: “Silverstone is a great track to race at, both because it’s one of our two home races and because it’s a proper driver’s track. Even with the changes that have been made over the years it is still what F1 is all about – high speed corners that really push the performance of the car. The new section is probably the least exciting bit of the track from inside the cockpit but the classic corners from Copse and Maggots to Beckets is right up there with some of the best corners on the calendar.
June 14th, 2012
Pirelli expects Formula 1′s leading teams to now stamp their authority on the remainder of the season – with only limited chances now of a repeat of shock results like Pastor Maldonado’s Spanish GP success.
March 26th, 2012
Ferrari team principal Stefano Domenicali hopes that Fernando Alonso’s surprise victory in Malaysia acts as a spur for his team to do even more to develop its car. Although Alonso drove brilliantly to deliver a win at Sepang, the outfit is under no illusions that its F2012 needs to be improved a lot before it is a genuine match for title favourites McLaren and Red Bull. The team is expected to bring some updates to the next race in China
