Questions from the floor
. (Andrea Cremonesi – La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Lewis, could you explain to us what happened with you and the team after you showed the telemetry on Twitter? How do you explain this fact?
Nothing happened. I had the head of the PR department ask me to take the picture off and I did.

Question for Fernando. Okay, it's always 25 points but to win here, it's Monza, it's a Ferrari
place and after last Sunday it looks like fate owes you one as you couldn't build your lead and you lost points, you couldn't match Schumacher on 24 races scoring, so what a sensation this would be winning here.
Well, I think Monza is a special win, because for any Ferrari
driver it's a lot of support that you feel from the tifosi from today until Sunday and you want to give something back to them and the best thing is obviously a race win, but from a championship point of view it doesn't change too much. Even if you're not fighting for the championship, winning in Monza will be special anyway, because the podium celebration with all the people on the main straight etc is nice for anyone, not only fighting for the championship. So we will try to do a good race and see how many points we can make and have clear in our minds what is the priority this weekend.
(Ralf Bach – R&B).
A question to Nico. Do you have any idea who will be your team-mate next year?
(Ian Parkes – Press Association).
Good afternoon Lewis. Just in general terms from your personal perspective, what would be the attraction, the positives in joining a team like Mercedes?
I have no idea. I've not really thought about it.
OK, could I turn it round to you Nico? From your perspective, what would be the attraction for Lewis to join a team like Mercedes?
I can say from my perspective. My perspective is that Mercedes and Ferrari
are on one level in terms of the history in F1 and the standing. It's very, very special to drive for the Silver Arrow, and especially to win with a Silver Arrow.
Lewis, does that resonate with you?
So, looking at it in general terms: McLaren
have won the last two races and Mercedes have only won one race in the past three years, does that put it into perspective for you as to where your priorities might lie?
I don't think I'm really looking for anything to be put into perspective. I drive for McLaren, we've won the last two races, we've got another great weekend, hopefully, ahead of us and that's what we've got to focus on.

Jerome, in what way has Romain Grosjean
helped you prepare if indeed he has done so?
