Sebastian Vettel:
Q: What's your favourite place in Melbourne?
I couldn't name only one place! I like the beach and Melbourne is a great place to be. There's a nice vibe to the city and the food in the restaurants is always good - I like the track there too.

Q: What do you love most about Australia?
Australia is an amazing country - it's great that you can see animals you'd only otherwise see in zoos, such as kangaroos and koalas; and the nature they have there is impressive with the outback. It's such a shame that I only get to see a small amount of the country - but each year I see a bit more, which I always enjoy. After testing it's good that now we finally get to go racing.

Mark Webber:
Q: How special is the Australian Grand Prix to you?
I've been on the podiums at most tracks around the world and have won at quite a few circuits and Melbourne is one which I would like to add to that. I really enjoy driving at the track, the atmosphere is fantastic. In general the people of Australia love the Grand Prix and are excited to have a world class event there. I'm proud when we go there with F1 as an industry and that we put on such a great event. Of course I want to go there and perform well, so I'll be focusing on myself to get the job done. The champagne will taste a little bit better in Melbourne if I get on the podium there.
