Questions from the floor
(Bob McKenzie – The Daily Express
Kimi, as world champion, how tough is it to have to put in a lap that's two seconds slower, for your team-mate to go past you?
I'm not in a position to challenge for the championship. I know what the team expects from me and I'm happy to try to achieve the maximum points for the team, what we need. Unfortunately we missed a few points today, overall. But like I said, it doesn't make any difference to my season.

Lewis, I think you mentioned earlier that your approach to Interlagos this year is going to be quite different to last year. Could you just expand a little bit more on that as you go into it with the same separation in the points and so on?
Well, there's not really much more to say, just that it's a similar approach to what I had this weekend, which was a better approach than I had last year coming here, so hopefully with the same approach that we had this year, a bit calmer, a bit more confident in the package and what we have to do… it's the same as this weekend.

Felipe, in most parts of the race, you were often slower than Lewis and Kimi, even when you were using softer tyres while they were using harder ones. However, Kimi was often able to keep up a similar lap speed to Lewis. What was wrong with your car?
I don't think there was anything wrong. Even if some laps I was slower than Kimi, there was not a big difference. Sometimes we had similar laps, we were trying to push each other very hard, thinking only of Lewis, but in terms of balance, for sure it was reasonable, but as Kimi said, we were not quick enough. When you're not quick, you're always trying to drive more than you can and sometimes you don't find a good lap, so that's it. Today it was impossible to win the race and I think we both finished in the best position that we could.

Last week in Fuji Ferrari was very, very strong on race pace. Here, today, it wasn't. Is it because of the tyre compounds you were using here compared to Fuji?
It's so difficult to answer this question. Many things change track to track. I think it's a difficult question and I cannot answer it. I don't know why we were missing a little bit of speed on this track.

Lewis, before you got in the car on Friday, you'd come in for a considerable amount of criticism following what happened last weekend in Japan. How much were you aware of that, and how much did that spur you on in your performance this weekend?
