Thursday press conference - Italian GP - Pt.2

Lewis, on the twitter subject, I know everyone is playing it down, but Jenson said after the race that he was disappointed that you had tweeted the details of the wings and everything else. Have you spoken to Jenson, have you cleared the air with him about it? It seemed to us that Jenson was seeing more in that tweet than maybe you did.

Lewis Hamilton:
I haven't spoken to him, don't plan to, moved on from it. Obviously it wasn't the best thing to do and it won't happen again, so move forward and focus on this race.

Q: (David Croft - Sky Sports).
Lewis, when you look at a contract or renegotiation or look to move, at your stage of your career, what is it you are looking at? Is it purely money or are there other factors?

Lewis Hamilton:
I want to win.

Q: (David Croft - Sky Sports).
Pure and simple you want to win.

Lewis Hamilton:
Yes.

Q: (David Croft - Sky Sports).
And is that win 2013 or win 2014, which is a big season, things change quite drastically in 2014, don't they?

Lewis Hamilton:
Yeah, I always want to win, every year you compete, that's why us drivers exist and that's why the teams exist. It's just making sure you're in the right place to do so.

Q: (David Croft - Sky Sports).
Being in the right place, does that mean that it might pay to be in a team that manufactures their own engine and their own energy recovery systems rather than being with a customer which McLaren will be?

Lewis Hamilton:
It doesn't mean anything.

Q:
(Patricia Sanchez - La Gaceta) Jerome, so you say you've got plenty of information from your team. Do you think there would be room for more testing days in the calendar from your experience?

Jerome d'Ambrosio:
I have no idea yet.

Q: (Patricia Sanchez - La Gaceta).
Do you feel that you've had plenty of time in the car?

Jerome d'Ambrosio:
You mean so far?

Q: (Patricia Sanchez - La Gaceta).
Yes.

Jerome d'Ambrosio:
Obviously so far, I don't feel like I've had plenty of time in the car. I had one time in Mugello on a fairly wet track. No, for sure I think it's good to get more time in the car and I can get much time in the car but I've got other things... I was really involved with the team all season so far, back at the factory as well, so I will try to capitalise on that.

Q: (Vincent Marre – Sport Zeitung).
Jerome, are you going to change your attitude of driving now you're coming back, having already had some experience in Formula One?

Jerome d'Ambrosio:
No, there's no reason to change myself, change who I am and the driver that I am, stepping in for the weekend, I think that's the worse thing you can ever do. I will approach the weekend as I have approached all the racing weekends I have been to so far. Of course, it's a special one, we are in Monza. I'm part Italian, it's a bit of a home race for me so I'm really cheered up for that and really going to give - as you always do - 100 percent that I have, but I'm not going to change the way I am and the way I drive.

Q: (Alan Baldwin - Reuters).
Felipe, Lewis is quite relaxed about not knowing where he's racing next year, but I guess in your case you're pretty frustrated. Could you just explain how frustrated you are, and also what percentage chance you think there is of you staying at Ferrari next year?

Felipe Massa:
