"We are negotiating to make sure we will offer the engine at the best possible price, but we can't give a present to anyone."
"You make progress, everyone makes progress, but because the rules are very strict you cannot develop very much in terms of engine freeze and the aerodynamic being very restricted, and that is making the races very predictable and very boring."
"We are in an unexpected situation in terms of paying our bills."
"When we see all the simulations they seem to be half a second a lap quicker than us - but for some reason, some reliability issues, they haven't been able to exploit their full potential."

Comment of the day
Should Jenson Button consider jumping before he’s pushed?
Jenson Button should retire proudly this season, and should announce it himself before getting sacked from the team. Last year already he was close to quit by the back door – which he doesn’t deserve.
He is a great individual, a team player, a world champion after all; he must feel the end won’t be long and he better have a proper farewell at the last grand prix of the season than an unknown exit on December 2nd.
