??These kinds of seasons don’t happen every year but we’re already focused on next season. Adrian [Newey] and the guys are working hard to get the car ready for next year and we move on.

??We had the same car, same engine, same tyres and I beat him. I don?t want to diminish Vettel?s achievement (this year), but he won the championship because he had the best car. He did his job, but another driver in the same car would probably have achieved the same results. I hope one day to have the same opportunity.??

Comment of the day

The 2011 F1 driver rankings has caused a fiery discussion. Estesark says:

I can?t believe you put X driver ahead of Y driver. Y was miles better. This list is rubbish and you clearly don?t know anything about F1. I?m never visiting this website again. In fact I?m never using the internet again. I hope you?re happy, ??Keith??, if that is your real name; you?ve ruined my life.
