Q: Ross, interesting to hear there was a quote from the team saying the car should suit this circuit. Very often being a low-downforce circuit it has been the fact that you haven't got very much downforce in the first place, so that's why the car suits the circuit. I am not saying that's the case with your car necessarily, but why should it suit the circuit here?
Ross Brawn: I think we have got a very strong engine. It is a good engine. It has proven here to be pretty successful in the past so that's always a big help. Cars tend to have a sweet spot of where they are developed and where they are at their optimum and from our modelling this is a circuit that should fit into that sweet spot of what we can do with the car. Challenging circuit, particularly this weekend with the mixed weather conditions, the choice of downforce is going to be a crucial decision, because if we get a mixed weather race you want to run high downforce but high downforce in a dry race is quite difficult. We have been playing around, as I am sure other teams have as well, with different downforce levels in the little windows of weather we have had and we will make some decisions when we see the weather forecast for Sunday. I think with the current form of racing we have qualifying is a bit less critical and therefore with more focus I think all the teams will be on finding the right solution for Sunday rather than worrying too much about Saturday which if it's wet and the race is dry could prove... an optimum set-up for the wet on Saturday won't be the best setup for the dry on Sunday.
Q: Do you feel, not on the weather side of things but the car side of things, that it will be the same thing for Monza. Are these your best two circuits?
RB: Well, I don't want to hype them up too much. But I think they are circuits that we should be reasonable on. We have got a gap to the top three teams. We are not where we want to be, so I don't think we can do an enormous amount about closing that gap this year, although there is still some work being done as what we have got to do is make a step change for next season. Our balance of work for this year and next year is changing as the season goes on as I think it is probably for most teams. We have got some things coming this season but they are two tracks that we enjoy, our drivers enjoy, and tracks I personally and with the teams I have been with have done pretty well at. They are races I enjoy.
Q: Christian, Mark Webber is quoted as saying that a Sebastian Vettel-type dominance is over. That the dominance you have seen at the start of the season is over. Do you agree with that?
Christian Horner: I think, if you are looking at 11 races, six wins, four seconds and one fourth place is not a bad run of results. The target for the team is to continue to achieve that kind of score rate. We have seen Ferrari and McLaren very competitive, not just in recent races, but I think this year has been deceptive in many respects. I think we have maximized our opportunities and our intention is very much to continue that in the remaining eight races. We know the next two events have historically been our weakest venues in terms of our package and obviously the horsepower emphasis that is placed on these two circuits but I think we are looking forward to the final eight races and we intend to attack them just as we have each of the previous 11 so far.
Q: You seemed to be running a very small rear wing this afternoon in the wet conditions; Mark was obviously very quick in the dry conditions; is that part of the difficult balance in these weather conditions that we were talking about earlier or was that for Monza?
CH: I think the balance that we have to achieve is that if we want to get close to certain engines on the straight we have to run a bit less wing, so we carry less downforce and that's been visible today. We will look at the data overnight and decide what level of downforce to adopt for the rest of the weekend. The weather forecast was probably actually slightly better than initially was forecast for here and it's been uncharacteristically warm as well. At the moment, I think the forecast is to get better throughout the weekend, but as we all know, it changes here very, very quickly.
Q: After the layoff, do you see a difference in your drivers?
CH: They've both had good breaks, they've both taken the opportunity to re-charge their batteries – if you call going up Alpe d'Huez or wherever it is on a road bike with Alain Prost recharging your batteries, which was what Mark was doing. I think it's good for the whole team. The whole team has come back looking healthier – as you all do – and I think it's good for Formula 1. It's such an intense season, from January 1 to the week following Hungary. All the teams, I'm sure, were absolutely flat-out. Ours has been no different and it has been a well-earned rest for team members and traveling members to spend some time with their families, have some time off and come back fully revitalized for the remaining part of the season.
