Q. Jaime, this is the first circuit you actually know. What sort of difference is that going to make?
JA: Well, definitely the Friday philosophy will change. I will go with a different mind in FP1 as I do not have to familiarize with the track or to learn the track. I can push from the first minute onward, so that is mainly the best reason.
Q. Pedro, again it is a circuit you know very well but it hasn't always been lucky for you in F1. But tell us about it in other formulas.
PdlR: I think you don't want to know... It hasn't been a lucky track for me. I raced in 1991, it was my first ever race here in Formula Renault and I did not finish. My only race finish here is in 1999, my first ever race in Formula 1. Since then for one reason or another I have not seen the checkered flag, so I am really looking forward to a change of luck here at home in front of my friends, my family. Don't forget my parents live just 10 minutes away, so they can listen to the engines every day, so I am really looking forward to this one and that is about it. Let's hope we revert the luck. We have been so lucky the first few races. I just want to change it a little bit.Q. Bruno, do you feel this is a lucky circuit for you?
BS: Absolutely. Every time I have been here I have finished on the podium at least. I don't think this time I will be on the podium. If we can finish the race, have a strong race, it is good for us. We have to be realistic about our performance targets and try not to get in the way of these quick guys too much. In China we had a decent performance in the race and if the weather is playing up then we can still have a more fun race. It seems like the weather is like it is in England, so we might get lucky.
Q. Fernando, I want to remind you of a little story. A few years ago when we were going around on the drivers' parade and we had just come from Imola where Michael (Schumacher) had just turned Imola red, we came here and you looked around and said, 'Not so red this weekend' and it was all blue and yellow. What's it going to be on Sunday?
FA: I think it will be more blue.
Q. This is a good circuit for you. You have won here and had four podiums.
FA: Yes, it has been a great race for me in terms of emotions and in terms of results as well. I have been quite lucky always to be in a good position and I have been lucky always with Renault to have a competitive car here and with McLaren also one podium, so hopefully I can be on the podium again for another color.
Q. Sebastian, you've had three poles, and actually won from the time that you didn't have pole position. The last nine races here have been won by the pole winner, you might like to hear. So, how important is pole going to be this weekend?
SV: Pole is always important. As Pedro said, where you put the car on Saturday will determine your race result by quite a bit on Sunday, but the race is there to find out and there are no points on Saturday. I think we have had good Saturdays. In the race that I won in Malaysia I started third which is still at the front, so not too bad, but obviously the target is the same again: start from pole and try to win the race. I had a similar comment, I remember, last year in Istanbul where someone came to me on the grid and said the last five winners at Istanbul all came from pole position but it turned out to be different on that day. Statistics are nice for you guys but for us it's more the day that counts and the moment, so we try to do our best. First of all we need to focus on tomorrow, trying to get every part to work and then we will see where we can put the car on Saturday on the grid and on Sunday we will have a long race, so it will be tough.
