Indian GP - Post qualifying press conference - Pt.1

Pirelli have said there's a possibility of someone running a one-stop strategy. Can you see that Mark, not necessarily for yourselves?

Mark Webber:
Well I don't know how accurate they've been in the past but we can listen to them but we know come Sundays things can change, so we don't get too wound-up with what Pirelli might say to be honest, because it's changing on Sunday, even amongst all the teams. So we're going to focus on what we think is the best on the day. Of course we take their advice but it's not a bible. So, let's see how the strategy goes. I think the car is working pretty well on Sunday conditions as well. Obviously today was a very, very strong performance from the whole team, to get the front row again for both of us was very good.

Q:
Do you have a specific role in the championship now, would you say?

Mark Webber:
No. My job is the same as it always has been: push to the limit and get the most out of what I have.

Q:
Lewis, you said you weren't quite on the same pace as the Red Bulls but you must be pleased to be ahead of the Ferraris and third on the grid.

Lewis Hamilton:
Third is a great position to start from so excited for tomorrow's race, especially as our long-run pace seemed to be relatively good compared to the others. I think Ferrari potentially have slightly faster pace overall. Over all of us maybe but we don't know what fuel they're on. Otherwise we're all very, very similar. Hopefully, if we can get a good start and have a good right with these guys in front, hopefully it'll be a better race than the last one we did.

Q:
The last couple of races have been quite difficult haven't they?

Lewis Hamilton:
Yes, I'm just looking forward to a race where we don't have any issues and can just fight for position and try and get some good points.
