Questions from the floor

Q:
(Ian Parkes - The Press Association) Mark, there's obviously been a lot of talk and speculation about yourself these past 48 hours since your comments on Thursday. Can you honestly say, hand on heart, that going into tomorrow's race after these last few days that your mind is clear, you're totally focused on the job in hand?

Mark Webber:
Absolutely mate. When I'm in the car, absolutely, completely clear. We've seen that with my performances in the last five or six races. Of course Korea didn't turn out but none of us have had perfect seasons this year, so with the exception of that I've been very happy with how I've driven and you can't drive like that if you're not happy. The boys on the floor, everyone here, we're all in great spirits and ready to go and have a good race tomorrow. That's our focus.

Q:
(Marco Degli'Innocenti - La Gazzetta dello Sport) Nico, your first pole, does this mean that your chances of being confirmed by your team for next season have increased now?

Nico H?lkenberg:
Yeah, Mark's just saying that that means a pay rise actually. No, just joking. I think the situation at Williams is still very open. Nothing is confirmed, obviously, but I just try to keep focused on doing a good job each weekend. So far, I think it's working pretty well. If I do that, and I don't make any silly mistakes, it's all I can do and then it's up to the team to decide if they want to keep me or not. I'm in a positive mood that we will have a successful ending to that story.

Q:
(Rodrigo Franca - VIP Magazine) For all of you: do prefer a race with conditions like that, a little bit wet or do you prefer a dry race?

NH:
I don't mind really. I'd like to have a proper wet... full wet conditions. That's what I like and what would be good for us. But either way, whatever it is, we go out there and race.

Sebastian Vettel:
It's not in our hands, so I don't really care. I think we have a competitive car in dry and wet, so we should be doing well.

MW:
Dry.

Q:
(Edd Straw - Autosport) Nico, the Williams hasn't been the best car off the starting grid so far this year. How confident are you that you will be able to get to the first corner in the lead and do you expect to have to be a little bit defensive when you get there if these guys have got a run on you?

NH:
To be honest, this week's starts have been very positive, all the ones we've done. For different reasons we've chosen some different gear ratios which allow us to have a better start, maybe give away a bit of performance during the lap but I think I can have a very good start tomorrow and still be P1 in the first corner and then see from there.

Q:
(Flavio Vanetti - Corriere della Sera) Sebastian and Mark, how do you rate the position of Fernando, considering tomorrow's race?

SV:
He's fifth, so he starts behind Mark, he starts from fifth. There's not much more to rate. To be honest there's 71 laps here and I think that if you look back at the races over the last three years it has always been very entertaining and I think no-one predicted the outcome of the race as it happened in the end. So he starts fifth. That's it for today, tomorrow we will see.

MW:
Yeah, where he is, is better than pole but it also could have been worse. Yeah, it could have been a slightly tougher day for him but as Seb said, he's fifth on the grid and we're not exactly driving around worrying about where he is because I'm not in the Ferrari, I'm in the Red Bull, so we will see where we are tomorrow afternoon.

Q:
(Joris Fioriti - AFP) To Mark and Sebastian: pure speculation, tomorrow you manage to overtake Nico, it's about the end of the race, Sebastian's second, you're third and Fernando is fourth or fifth. What's going to happen?

MW:
Mmm, don't know. I don't think this situation will happen anyway. That a good T-shirt you have on anyway.

SV:
I don't know. I don't like the T-shirt, I prefer the big...

Q:
(Jon McEvoy - Daily Mail) Seb, would you give way if that scenario was real?

SV:
Well, I think, to be totally frank, there are so many scenarios possible that I could give you an answer to any scenario but I think we would still be here tonight and I think it's probably wiser for me to go to sleep at some point in order to be recovered for tomorrow. It's a long race. It depends on situations. In the end we are both fighting for the championship, we are fighting for the team, for the Constructors'. So we will see. It's a long race and you always need to act according to the situation. We will see.
