"World championship leader Jenson Button has confirmed that he will take part in the Race of Champions again this year."
"I always thought that they bottled it last year, choosing to work on the 2009 car once they had achieved their 2008 targets of a first win and third in the constructors’ championship, rather than throw the kitchen sink at trying to win the title with Kubica." Didn't Ted Kravitz junk that theory a few months back?
Lewis Hamilton: “Winning on Sunday was our victory. The work that you’ve done this season has been incredible – I have never seen this place so intensely busy and productive. And the result in Hungary showed that there is definitely light at the end of the tunnel – and that makes the job easier and more satisfying for everyone. You have all been amazing and I hope you are as proud of this win as I am.”
"This is why the FIA prepared regulations to reduce costs drastically. These measures were needed to alleviate the pressure on manufacturers following Honda's withdrawal but also to make it possible for new teams to enter. Had these regulations not been so strongly opposed by a number of team principals, the withdrawal of BMW and further such announcements in the future might have been avoided." FIA not passing up the opportunity to say "we told you so"
"While Formula One continues to struggle in the recession, BMW’s impending departure will free up their star Polish driver Robert Kubica as Ferrari look for someone to replace the injured Felipe Massa."
"The Hungarian race was held on a circuit with lots of long twisting turns, requiring lots of braking and – on a generally hot day – conditions that should ensure plenty of tyre heat. Yet the team could see from their data systems that the tyres rarely got beyond 60C during Sunday's race, this being about 20C lower than they need to be in order to work properly."
Michael Schumacher's spokeswoman Sabine Kehm: "The whole thing will be considered by Ferrari. If they approach Michael, then he will consider it,"
"I think it is now a different story. If KERS helps you to win then it is mentioned. Before it was probably said that the little boys use KERS and the others do not, but I think it is different now. Maybe we will see teams changing to KERS even during this season."
