Drivers: Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren), Fernando Alonso (Renault) and Juan Pablo Montoya (McLaren).

Questions from the floor.

Q: Adrian Rodriguez Huber - Agencia EFE.
Fernando, yesterday you said you wouldn't mind second position, it wouldn't be bad, it would be a good one if you just lost two points. How happy are you now, and second question is do you think the rest of the season, with five races to go, the scenario will be the same, with McLarens and Renault in front, and Kimi attacking you, or will you be OK just finishing on the podium or are you looking for more victories?

Fernando Alonso:
Too many questions! Yeah, yesterday I said that second place was not really signed because anything could happen in the race, the races are long. We saw with Juan Pablo today that until the last lap you can never be sure about your position so my only job in the races is to push from the beginning to the end, to push the McLarens, to keep them crazy and pushing as well and I think today we did it again. We did it in Nurburgring, we did it here and we overtook them on the last laps so I'm happy, I'm lucky but also I try to find this luck sometimes and I think that for the rest of the season, I think that McLaren and Renault will be competitive and probably BAR and Toyota will be competitive again in some races, so we need to make sure we beat McLaren for both the Constructors' and Drivers' championships and if somebody else is fighting with us, like Button this weekend, make sure that they are not between McLaren and us.

Q: Heikki Kulta - Turun Sanomat.
Kimi, are you surprised to win two races with the same engine? (Laughter)

Kimi Raikkonen:
No, this has happened before, this year already: in Barcelona and Monaco, so it's nothing surprising.

Q: Sanna Mattila - Ilta-Sanomat.
Kimi, what kind of advice did Mike Tyson give you before the race?

KR:
Nothing. It was nice to see him. No, he just said good luck and that's all.

Q: Juha Paatalo - Financial Times Deutschland.
Kimi, thinking about the championship, how is your approach now. Two points is not a lot, how worried are you about that?

KR:
Yeah, it's not perfect but I couldn't do anything more. I did the best I could. There's no way to score any more points if Alonso keeps finishing second so we just need to do the best we can and you never know what happens in the races, so two points are better than nothing.
