Drivers: Fernando Alonso (Renault), Rubens Barrichello (Honda), Felipe Massa (Ferrari), Tiago Monteiro (Spyker MF1), Kimi Raikkonen (McLaren Mercedes).

Questions from the floor.

Q: (Carlos Miquel - Diario AS).
Fernando, are you afraid about a lack of fair play in Sunday's race?

Fernando Alonso:
No, I have no worries at all. I think all the drivers in the last race want to do a good result because the motivation is not the same as for the first race. It is the last race and everyone wants to do a good result to prepare (for) the winter and so on and I think it will be a completely normal race.

Q: (Fr?d?ric Ferret - L'Equipe).
Fernando, what will be your best memory of this year and your worst memory of this year?

FA:
Best memory was Barcelona to win my home grand prix, but also it was great to win for the first time in Monaco, first time in Silverstone and Suzuka, all big places in Formula One, and the worst memory is all the things that happened with the penalties I had this year.

Q: (Andrea Cremonesi - La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Fernando, you use a different spec of engine to Giancarlo. Does this mean your strategy will be more conservative than his?

FA:
No, it should be the same. I think in terms of engine, we have a different specification, using the normal engines we have been running in the last races in my car and a little evolution with Giancarlo, but in terms of performance there should not be any big difference, not even one-tenth, much less, and so I don't think any difference in timed laps or in strategy, not at all. We need a normal race with both cars as we did in the last part of the year and try to have both cars on the podium. We were in China second and third and in Japan first and third so try to repeat that result here and both be on the podium.

Q: (Fr?d?ric Ferret - L'Equipe).
Fernando, last year you were not world champion. This year you are. Did this help you to fight for your second title?

FA:
I don't know. Sometimes yes. I think to find the right effort, to continue and find the right motivation and I know how to do it and I know how I enjoyed last year winning and how to repeat and how to defend number one on my car and try to do the best for the sport and for the team. Maybe the experience you have in one important year, like you have with your first championship, this you never forget and you use in the rest of your career for sure.

Q: (Fr?d?ric Ferret - L'Equipe).
How do you compare this year's battle with last year's with Kimi?

FA:
Completely different. I think this year was with the same advantage in the first part of the season around 20 to 25 points and we kept it last year a little bit thanks to the mechanical problems that McLaren had because when normal races happened the McLaren was quicker than us and it was impossible to fight with them and sometimes they had problems and we got the advantage back again. This year with Ferrari, sometimes we can fight with them and we can win and we can lose, but for sure I had a much better feeling last year about the championship, the sport and about everything.

Q: (Heikki Kulta - Turun Sanomat).
Fernando, what do you expect from McLaren next year?

FA:
Well, it is difficult to say. I want to answer quickly because I ask myself the same question and we need to see what happens next year, I think every year is different. We saw in 2004 the McLaren was down finishing fifth in the Constructors Championship but in 2005 they were the best on the track and in 2006 also some problems, so I hope that in 2007 they go back with the best car. But for sure new cars, new rules every year and next year the same tyres. We'll see how everyone adapts to the Bridgestone tyres. I know McLaren will give all effort to be champion again, at the top, and I know I will put in all my effort as well, so hopefully together we can have a good championship but it will be difficult to know until the first races because also the winner will not be representative.

Q: (Andrea Cremonesi - La Gazzetta dello Sport).
Fernando, are you and Kimi pushing your teams to allow you to do your first tests with your new teams?

FA:
I am not pushing anyone because I am trying to finish this championship first of all and on Monday we start doing something for next for sure to try to see if I can test one day before the end of the year, it is something and a little help, but if nothing happens until you have the new car, the 2007 cars on the track, in January, for sure for all the teams it is not a big drama if you don't test.
KR: It is very difficult to do anything right now, we are still in this season, but I have all my faith in the team, for sure they know what they are doing and they will push as hard as they can. They will be testing in the winter and Felipe will be driving, so anything that is new will be done. January will be enough time for me to get ready for the season.

Q: (Carlos Miquel - Diario AS).
Fernando do you have any special amulet for this race?

FA:
Nothing (raises finger to sky).

Q: (Erica Akie - Jornal da Tarde).
I want to know if Brazil is becoming a special place for you?

FA:
Yes, it will become special for sure if this Sunday I win and win two titles in Brazil it will be special and if I lose the championship it will be special as well because it will be a very bad memory because with 10 points if you lose the championship in the last race it will be difficult to forget anyway.
