Timo Glock: “Suzuka is quite a different circuit to the last race in Singapore and with a lot of high-speed corners. Now we just need to wait and see how the car performs there. For this race we again have a couple of new developments on the car suited to this track, and I am hoping we will see another step forward and an even better chance of fighting with our immediate competitors and further closing the gap to the front of the field.

Fabio Leimer rounded out his impressive GP2 post-season form by topping the final day of testing at Barcelona.

The 22-year-old, a racewinner with the Rapax squad this year, set the early running before the session was halted following Kevin Magnussen’s foray into the gravel at Turn 5

Jimmie Johnson would like to see more road courses added to the Sprint Cup schedule and believes a race in Canada is something NASCAR should explore. The reigning Cup champion, only once a winner on a road course in NASCAR, would favour the addition of a race in Canada to the top-level series’ schedule in the future, as he sees major interest from fans in the neighbour country who often make the trip south of the border to attend Cup events. NASCAR currently races at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal with its second-tier series, although there are fears for the future of the event as government support for next year’s race is said to be under review.

Yvan Muller survived some late pressure to deny Rob Huff a home win in the first of today’s World Touring Car Championship races at Donington Park. Muller started from pole and had enjoyed a relatively untroubled run for most of the race, but Huff was able to capitalise on some late traffic to close within range with a lap remaining. What had been a one-second gap briefly shrunk to almost nothing, but Muller was able to pull away again as the pair drove around the circuit for the final time.

Heikki Kovalainen: “First I want to thank the boys at Williams for their help with the little incident that brought my Singapore GP to an end. I’ve had an amazing response to putting out the fire, and while it was clearly the best way to stop what would have been a very dangerous situation, if I’d come into the pits, it was a pretty spectacular end to a great race. We were racing Michael and Sebastien for position, and made the right call to fight them as hard as we could
