    Apparently drivers on Melbourne Thursday press conference are Vettel, Ricciardo, Hamilton, Alonso, Magnussen and Massa.

    About American open-wheelers.

    I think it would need someone under 25 to be a real championship contender. Current under-25s (Rahal, de Silvestro, Vautier, Newgarden) don’t fit that category. If Munoz becomes regular next year and will be contender soon he might be one.

    Thursday:

    Charles and Giedo: With Romain Grosjean getting 10-place penalty, he may well be demoted behind you in the starting grid. In general, how do you look on defensive battle against drivers in faster cars?

    Friday: (I want to stay away from tyregate, but ask about tyres a different question)
    Monisha, last year it was said that Sauber is one of the best with tyres. In Monaco, Nico struggled towards the end of the race. Was the reason that he didn’t save tyres enough or is this year’s car different compared to last year?

    That would be good. But looking through the drivers so far involved, only two of them have been only once: Chilton and Maldonado. “Good” thing that they collided with each other, though I may see that Chilton has to wait until Britain.

    With drivers’ session gone it doesn’t make sense to “ask” anything.

    But for Alain Prost, this:

    As a driver, Monaco GP is always special. Has it been special after your driving career, whether you have been just a spectator, team owner or in your current role as an advisor?

    It’s always difficult to compare drivers who competed full career and those who had a career cut short.
    Of those single GP winners, I think the following had an early end to their careers: Kubica, Nannini, Nilsson, Pace, Cevert, Scarfiotti, Bandini, Musso.

    Talking about full careers I rate Alesi the best.

    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?

    IMO, Coulthard and Brundle have shown that former drivers who have worked for media can do the interviews much better than others.

    In Finland we have nowadays Mika Salo in our crew, so he could be good chance to do it at some race. However in Bahrain he’s working in the stewards’ panel.

    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?

    The teams will improve their tyre usage towards the end of the season and I think we will the amount of pit stop decreasing towards the end of the season, just like it has happened in past two years.

    Just read the transcript and noted that Grosjean and Perez didn’t get asked any questions from the floor.

    I say Adrian Sutil due to some trouble with the law. The question has only surnames, so Scheckter might refer to Tomas and not Jody.
