Thursday press conference - Chinese GP - Pt.2
Adrian, last time you were in China you left in – shall we say – unfortunate circumstances. How do you feel about coming back here and did you have any worries about them letting you in?
No worries, no emotions. The past, for me, is done and I'm concentrating on my future.
Q: (Jonathan Legard – BBC Radio Five Live).
Mark, how much have you resolved everything in your own mind over what happened at the last race and how to go forward and I suppose linked in there, is the haircut part of the new mean look?
No, definitely not mate, the haircut's not... it was a little bit of a screw up. Once he'd started he was on his way. Haircut is not part of the new look or new feel. Going forward, mate, I think we know everything that happened; obviously in Malaysia there was plenty of interest from everyone, other teams, media etc, but for me myself mate, it's not an unusual situation and I'm looking forward to racing here this weekend and getting on with it. When you're at the front in Formula One there's always stuff going down so it just depends on how much is going down that you've got to manage. In the end, for me, I'm looking forward to driving the car here, putting in first gear and driving out of the garage and getting down there to feel what the car's like on the circuit. That's what I'm looking forward to, mate.
Q: (Andrea Cremonesi – La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Mark, coming back to the previous questions about what was said yesterday. Vettel said yesterday 'I can't apologise for winning because I am paid for that' so I would like to have your reply about these words and if you've already talked about it, I would like to know if before the podium or afterwards at some moment, you thought 'OK, I want to stop now with this team, I want to leave Formula One to do something very surprising for everybody?'
No. I think the rawest emotion for me was probably the first few laps after we had the race on track. After the podium and on the podium and around there I wasn't thinking about anything... reacting in a harsh way mentally for myself to think about 'now I will think about doing something different.' I wasn't thinking like that at all. And Seb's comments? If that's what he thinks then that's what he thinks, that's his position on what happened in Malaysia...
Q: (Ian Parkes – Press Association).
Question for Nico Rosberg: I was wondering if, coming away from Malaysia, you were confident in your own mind that there was genuine equality within Mercedes, there was no number one, number two, because it has been suggested now after what happened in Malaysia that Lewis perhaps has number one status?
Very confident, yup. No number one, no number two. Extremely confident. Plus you can also add to that yourself in a few weeks time or months time a question.
