Q. Christian, would Red Bull develop their own or would they go with Renault's?
CH: First of all, KERS is a very interesting technology, it's something that Formula 1 needs to be responsible and look at. I think the problem that we have is that with the current regulations we find ourselves a little bit in no-man's land concerning the performance advantage of running KERS, integrating it into the car, the weight, the system. Is it just going to be a benefit for the first 500 meters of the race, as we saw so often last year? Is it actually going to add anything to the spectacle, the sporting spectacle of racing? Unfortunately, with the current regulation it's arguable as to whether it will. I think each team is going to have to make a decision, whether they optimise their car with a KERS system or without a KERS system and I think it is very, very tight as to whether you would or wouldn't run a system. Then there's obviously a cost element on top of that. It's an interesting question that we have to make decisions on in the relatively near future, because the architecture of next year's car... one has to decide fairly shortly, are you going to incorporate a KERS? You've also got to think about the size of your drivers, the weight limit has been increased to accommodate that to a degree. Weight distribution is affected by running KERS, there's a knock-on effect - adapting that system into your car is quite significant and of course there are gains and losses. You've just got to weigh up: does the system earn its place as a performance differentiator on your car?
Q. Much of what was key to the Turkish Grand Prix were radio transmissions, especially between the McLaren drivers and the Red Bull drivers and the fact that they were delayed or never broadcast just added to the confusion of the controversy that's rumbled on into this week. Would it not help people's understanding of the race - and Martin, you spoke about the entertainment that you're here to provide - if those transmissions were made open and accessible to broadcasters, not just to the FIA and FOM?
MW: Well, the radio transmissions are made available by all the teams to the commercial rights holder at all times. They then have the rights to use that in any way that they choose to. I guess the issue is how much can you process and refine and give to the outside broadcasters. That's probably a discussion you need to have with FOM, not with us.
CH: From our point of view, all radio transmissions should be available and open. Certainly all our transmissions seem to be played, there was nothing that wasn't played, because there was no communication given other than standard communications about managing fuel mixtures etc during the course of the race. But I think it's something that Formula 1 has opened up much more in recent years. We never used to hear Ferrari transmissions, we never used to hear McLaren transmissions. We do hear that now and I think that adds to the spectacle, it adds to the show that is Formula 1.
Q. Christian and Martin, there's a ban on team orders in Formula 1 that was brought in after Austria to stop things like that farcical race finish with drivers switching around. Is there an argument for maybe re-evaluating the ban on team orders, both to allow people in your position to manage what your drivers are doing on the circuit, and also to prevent conspiracy theories rightly or wrongly being generated from what we do hear of radio transmissions?
CH: I think team orders are wrong. I think we've got two guys who we back equally and it's down to what they do on the track. You employ professional drivers and we shouldn't dictate how they drive the car. I think it would be wrong to deny the public from what a Grand Prix should be about which is man and machine competing with each other, and that's a philosophy which we've always had and so I think it would be wrong to reintroduce the ability to dictate that one car should absolutely win from the first corner onwards.
MW: I think we're happy with the regulations as they are. We haven't been operating team orders and that's been something in McLaren for many, many years. I know some teams have but I guess historically Formula 1 teams could run as a team. I don't mind if other teams want to do something and that's up to them, but within our team, we've tried to treat all of our drivers with respect. We try to treat them as fairly as we can at all times in preparing for a race and throughout a race. Having said that, you'll never eliminate conspiracy theories; there will be a conspiracy theory on something else. I think it's fine as it is.
Q. What do you think of Jean Todt's suggestion that drivers should be sanctioned in the championship for behaving badly on public roads?
CH: I completely agree with it. I thought that used to be the case anyway. It certainly used to be the case that you had to have a valid road license to hold a competition license. The drivers are ambassadors for driving safely on the road. Certainly, I don't think we would have any problem if that was reinstated.
MW: Yes, I agree with that, but we wouldn't want to extend it to team members!
NH: Yes, it's perfectly OK.
EB: Yes, definitely the drivers are ambassadors for safety and I don't know how you can handle penalizing them on track when they are doing something bad on the road. But they definitely need to behave because they have ambassador status.
