Mark Webber: “The circuit is great, the surface and layout are both very good for driving an F1 car on the limit. The last sector used to be very, very quick and now, for the last few years, we’ve had a slow chicane which breaks the rhythm of the lap up a little bit, but all in all I enjoy driving the car on this track. Of course I want to improve on my result in Turkey, so that means trying to finish on the top step. It would be nice to add to the special memories I have. It’s one of the best races of the season in terms of atmosphere, because of the support Fernando gets. I love the drivers’ parade when we see the fireworks in the crowd going off and they sing songs too, it is always entertaining.”

Sebastian Vettel: “We know the Barcelona circuit well from winter testing – it should be suitable for our car and our plan is to get the best team result possible. Historically Barcelona is a circuit that is poor for overtaking, but with the DRS this will now be quite different. I like Spain and know Barcelona well from racing there – it’s a great modern city with lots of life and interesting architecture. I like the Spanish people and their culture, it’s always a fantastic atmosphere at Spanish sporting events, such as the grand prix and football matches. This is the first race of two back to back events, I’m returning to Switzerland after Barcelona, so there will be a lot of travel.”
