“My target is still F1, but the new World Endurance Championship is very interesting. There’s only one clash with the F1 calendar, so I can keep my hand in there doing a bunch of Fridays.”

Williams confident lessons learned (Autosport)

Adam Parr: “In reality we’ve been in the middle ranks for some years now. You don’t have to do anything if you’re plodding along in the middle in this sort of cotton wool world, and I think what’s happened to us is that we have really seen not only that the current level of performance is unacceptable, but also the need to make radical changes.”

“I hate being a passenger and it was with some trepidation that I accepted a ‘fabulous’ invitation from our Formula 1 correspondent Bob McKenzie and Sky’s Sports Formula One presenter Tony Jardine to join them for a ‘day out’ using Silverstone’s fabulous facilities.”

Comment of the day

WasiF1 reckons Sebastian Vettel could have his pick of the F1 teams:

Vettel is now the type of driver that he will be in the shopping list of not only Ferrari but Mclaren, & Mercedes in the future. But I want him to stay with Red Bull as long as they have Adrian Newey and Christian Horner in the team.
