Paul di Resta said: "What I want to do now is be on the Formula One grid in 2009 to race head-to-head against Lewis. Lewis has made it, and so too has Vettel, who I beat comfortably to the Euro F3 championship in 2006. If they can do it, I certainly know I can too. Now we just have to see what happens for next season."
Pedro de la Rosa on his Force India test: "For the moment this is just two days of testing and nothing more. I have a contract with McLaren and I thank them for allowing me to do this."
"A provisional date of January 27 has been set for a decision on the circuit's proposed £100m revamp, leaving just 429 days for building work to be carried out."
"Giving out medals is stupid. How many Silvers equal a Gold? How many Bronzes? How do you convert them? Ah, yes, you give them a numerical value… Bernie ought to come out with it and be honest: he just wants to reward Ferrari and McLaren!"
"I think it’s good that he is going to put in an appearance in front of the 80,000 British crowd, but I still feel a bit let down that he won’t be doing what he should be doing and that is racing the likes of Jenson Button and Michael Schumacher in equal machinery."
"The first time I saw one, I thought the aspect ratio of the photo was wrong. Alas, no, the car is just that ugly. Man, I'm almost glad they're not coming back to the Speedway any time soon. The Dallaras look a little funky, but at least they don't look like Picasso's rendering of a racecar." F1 uglier than IRL: official.
Sebastien Loeb: "I am happy because at the end of the afternoon session I was really feeling comfortable in the car. I didn’t make any mistakes and had no big moments, I just tried to improve without taking big risks. And in the end, the time was not so bad – and I know now that I can go faster."
"Where he lifts himself clear of the pack is that he is also an instinctive broadcaster. He doesn’t just know what’s going on in the heads of the drivers and the teams which is merely his job, more importantly and unusually he knows what’s going on in the heads of all those millions crowded around the telly hanging off his every word. This is partly down to a ferocious intelligence, but mainly because he is an unreconstructed petrolhead like the rest of us." Hear, hear.
