The BAFTA thing is odd because ITV seem to win it when a British driver does something good, rather than where their coverage is any good. For example, they won it in 2007 at Canada, when Hamilton won his first race, even though so many people complained about their coverage of that race they were forced to apologise. However they did do a genuinely good job at Brazil last year – a lot of other commentary teams missed the significance of Hamilton passing Glock in the closing laps. That said, BBC's F1 coverage is incomparably better and if ITV can win three BAFTAs in a row BBC should do even better.
Nick Heidfeld: "China was bad enough, but things just got worse in Bahrain. It's not merely that we were too slow; we were also unlucky. Starting from 14th on the grid, there's not a lot you can do with an uncompetitive car, but after the first corner, our position was hopeless."
Lewis Hamilton: "I wasn't 100% sure I wanted to be here for the next five years [the length of his McLaren contract]. There was so much going on. Do I want to be in the limelight with people slating me?
"The Spaniard, who started seventh, eventually scored a point despite having no drinking water available for the duration of the race."
Luca di Montezemolo on FOTA: “Unity is good, We will have a meeting in London on May 6th, because here we are and we don’t yet know the rules for next year. “
"The future of the British Grand Prix at Donington Park faces further uncertainty after a council announced a review of its planning permission."
"The team have become very popular since the beginning of the season. We are negotiating, as are other people, and we may or may not end up doing a full branding exercise."
