Following the race Marti Brundle asking the questions on the podium. Race winner Sebastian Vettel says “I probably was a little bit too keen too soon … it’s hot now and we should talk internally”

Mark Webber: “After the last stop the team told me the race was over and we turned the engine down … Seb made his own decision and we know he’ll get protection”

Lewis Hamilton: “The team did a fantastic job … to be honest I really feel Nico should be stood up here. He had the better pace today … I can’t say it’s the best feeling being up here. [On the McLaren pit stop] I just did a Jenson!”
