    To Paul Hembrey: I would just like to ask, when you were given the brief to make tyres that degrade quickly, can you confirm the FIA didnt give you a piece of old chewing gum for reference? Because frankly, that would provide greater grip levels after 10 laps.

    To Paul Hembery: So what’s it like running the grand circus called Formula Pirelli, formerly known as Formula 1?

    To Charles: How glad are you to have Heiki back to lead the team from the test driver position?

    Charles:
    Having driven for Marussia last year and Caterham this year, how much the teams have difference in their working ambitions while trying to get higher on the timesheets?

    Martin:
    McLaren has had several bad starts to the season, such as in 2004 or 2009. In both those years the team was able to win in the latter parts of the season. Are those experiences helpful in the current situation of the team?

    Paul Hembery:
    How many laps do you estimate the soft tyre would have lasted in Bahrain, and how many laps was your initial estimate when you selected the soft tyre for Bahrain?

    Follow-up question:
    Will the soft and super soft compounds be made more durable in light of these changed expectations [if indeed he confirms the first question], or simply be used at fewer events?

    To Vettel: how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    And to Fernando (a little bit more of a serious question this time): how did the car feel going through the corners in Bahrain with the DRS jammed open and how much do you lament using it again after having pitted to get it ‘fixed’?

    As I would be one on the floor, I would ask just one question in each, although this time one directed towards two members.

    First, on drivers’ PC.
    Sergio, Lewis Hamilton talked about being controlled too much while being at McLaren. Do you feel the difference between working in McLaren and Sauber?

    Then, in the team staff PC:
    Mark and Dave, how do you feel about the situation where the difference between your teams seem to be decided much by the bad luck happening to other teams rather than the pace of your teams?

    To Everybody:

    Would you happily go out and protest the fact that these interviews are mandatory even though they haven’t really got anything to do with driving a fast horseless carriage on ashpalt, especially if all of you start protesting together after a given command, perhaps from me?
