There were more great quotes between the three. Best press conference of the year.


Plus

"Next year we will be going for nine."

“..to be honest the whole race was pretty much fuel saving … try to hold the guy behind and try to save enough fuel to be legal , in the end, so nothing to do with racing really, it’s just unfortunate that with the rules and some circuits, it’s like this and it’s really not fun.”

Kimi Raikkonen after Abu Dahbi GP.

Good summary of current F1.

I don't get this though. The fuel saving didn't affect Mercedes. So the lack of pace of the Ferrari's, if due to fuel savings, is a problem of theirs, not of the series, as Mercedes didn't seem to have trouble with it.

Lewis didn't exactly push Bottas though did he?

Merc are just in a race of their own though, simply untouchable.

F1Guy User has been fined for unsportsmanlike behaviour!
Ferrari had short filled both cars at Abu Dhabi (as they did at a few other races). This is the reason they were 'saving fuel'. But don't let facts get in the way of a rant.



ps. The Hamilton/Mercedes hate even managed to infiltrate the quote of the week thread!??

So Ferrari short filled, to try to gain an advantage, and still finished 20+ seconds behind? Man, Vettel must be one amazing driver to drag that lump to challenge Hamilton and Mercedes huh?

"Lewis Hamilton’s new engine and maximum attack pace at least gave Ferrari, Renault and Honda a clue as to how much power and efficiency they need to find this winter. And I doubt the GPS and sound analysis will make for happy reading, unless you’re in Brixworth."

Ralf Waldman the German MotoGP rider sadly died of a heart attack this week at only 51.

In this obituary this classic quote was attributed to him:

After the race he was asked if he was a hero. Waldmann’s reply was typical of the man. “When I started on wet tyres I was an idiot. Then when it rained and I could win, I was a hero. The difference between hero and idiot is very small.”
