Christian Horner labels Vettel's third title as his best

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has said that Sebastian Vettel's 2012 championship was the hardest of the three he has won. Vettel pipped Fernando Alonso by three points, having entered the second half of the season with a forty point deficit to recover. "In many respects this is his best Championship because he has had to work so hard for it. His mental strength has always been impressive but this year he has again stepped it up another level," said Horner. "He’s never allowed […]

Whitmarsh regrets McLaren mistakes

Martin Whitmarsh has said that McLaren should have won a couple more championships during Lewis Hamilton's time with the team.

"We've still got an extraordinary record and have had some fantastic races, but between us, with Lewis […]

I was starting from the dirty side of the track, we had doubts over tyre life and what would be […]

Raikkonen not giving up on title

Kimi Raikkonen's hopes of a second world title appear increasingly forlorn after the Korean Grand Prix, although Raikkonen refuses to give up. The Finn did admit that he achieved the maximum in Korea with a fifth place finish. "I think this was about where we should have been today", he said. "The yellow flags at the start didn’t help when we were fighting with Felipe [Massa] but even so we didn’t quite have the speed to match the Red Bulls and Ferraris. We also lost […]

Marussia thrilled with Singapore result

The Singapore Grand Prix proved to be a good race for Marussia as the team leapt up to tenth in the Constructors Championship, ahead of Caterham. Timo Glock finished in twelfth to record the team's best result in almost three years of competition. "An incredible race for us. In general I knew that, with our strategy, we could really do something if we stayed close to Kovalainen in the first stint and that’s what I tried to do - to get everything out of the […]

Disastrous day for Caterham

Singapore proved to be a frustrating race for Caterham as the team was overtaken by Marussia in the Constructors Championship. Heikki Kovalainen could manage only fifteenth, with Vitaly Petrov four place in arrears. "For me that was a good race until the safety cars. We decided to stay out but when we restarted for the second time I’d probably been out too long and the tyres were starting to give up. I had to stop again and there wasn’t enough time to recover from there […]
