“Williams boss Sir Frank Williams has sensationally made a double revelation in declaring his Formula One outfit will use British made Cosworth engines next season and that the team will announce its new driver line-up on Monday, a day after the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.”
"There's no Donington. They've missed the deadline which we kept extending for them."
Nico Rosberg: "It is Michael Schumacher who started this, like at Spa [in 2000], when Mika Hakkinen tried to overtake him and he ran him off the track. When the guy behind has made a decision [to pass] and the guy in front then moves over, it is very dangerous. You cannot do that."
"Jarno Trulli: I think we’re going to discuss it probably tomorrow in the drivers’ briefing and in the GPDA briefing. Obviously it was very disappointing to end the race like that, especially on the first lap. Obviously I think I had every reason to be extremely furious. I’ve got all the evidence to show that I was there, I was next to him, so I think tomorrow we are going to discuss it.
Adrian Sutil: I think there’s nothing to discuss. It was a quite obvious incident. In the end it was very disappointing for myself, even more, I think, because I was the one who was just driving and he lost control of his car and crashed in my back, so it was not my problem, it was his problem. I don’t know why he’s freaking out like that, to be honest."
German press suggests Timo Glock is heading to Renault to partner Robert Kubica.
"Anthony Hamilton, father of Lewis Hamilton, was named yesterday on a management advisory board for a new football “talent management” company, 2mb International Soccer Management. The venture is the brainchild of Mark Blundell, the former Formula One driver, who claims he is going to “shake up” the sport."
"Depending on who you talk to, Ecclestone, on behalf of Formula One, is demanding between £11m and £15m."
"Ecclestone, being Ecclestone, will drive a hard bargain. That is to say he is demanding £12million from Silverstone to stage the event. Silverstone, for their part, do not want to pay such a large fee, especially because the 17-year contract on the table comes with an annual seven per cent escalator."
"The idea of Sutil at Toyota is something of a mystery, particularly if the team could keep Jarno Trulli." Especially so seeing as the pair seem to be at loggerheads.
"You mentally get so used to all the modern tracks getting more and more run off, and then in Abu Dhabi suddenly the run offs are really short because of this Tecpro Barrier. You look at it and think, 'that doesn't look like much run-off'."
