QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR
(Jim Armstrong - AP)
Lewis, if I could just ask you about your move to Mercedes, given the results of the two teams over the years, do you feel there's a bit of a risk in going to that team?
No. I'm not really here to talk about that this weekend. I'm here to talk about trying to win this World Championship still. So we've got six races ahead in a great team that I've had a great, an incredible journey with and I'm working on trying to finish that on a high.

Sergio, just recently we asked you if you were talking to other top teams and you said 'no'. If that was the case, how quickly did this whole thing come about?
No, there has been some talks before but I didn't want to give too much information about my opportunities, my options. So the question doesn't come that often because if I say at that time 'yes', then I will be full of questions. So it's better to… I wanted to keep it in low profile, focussing always in my team, giving my hundred per cent to my team that I'm very thankfully they give me this opportunity. We have six races with a strong car to go and I want to leave on a very high from this team.

Lewis, what was the thing that made you change the team where you've grown up through your career? Was it just challenge or…?
To be honest, I had a big press conference or meeting with the Brits the other day, so the story is already out and I've already spoken about that stuff. Like I said, I'm here to focus on this weekend.

Jenson, among the six drivers here, you are the only one not involved in these moves. How do you judge, from your point of view, what's happened and what might happen next year?
It's nice to be the one not in that position - it normally is me. We all move about. That's the way Formula One is. You're either trying to find a better possibility, a better team that you think can give you an opportunity to win races or you're looking for another challenge. There's always going be people moving around in Formula One. It's the same with team personnel; it's not just the drivers. It just seems that it's all come at once.

If I could ask the three drivers on the back row: the three drivers in front of you are all sorted for next year. What's your individual position for next year? Could you just let us know, one by one, what's happening?
