(Ian Parkes – The Press Association) Sebastian and Mark: with the Constructors’ title now out of the way, and the Drivers’ picture pretty clear. To Sebastian initially, if this is the top three going into the final lap in Abu Dhabi, will you do the honourable thing and allow Mark by for him to win the title? And Mark, would you expect Sebastian to do the honourable thing and allow you by, given the occasionally uneasy relationship you two guys have had this season?
I’m not sure if I got all of your question. It’s pretty straightforward. In less than a week’s time, we unpack the cars – the day after tomorrow actually – and prepare them for Abu Dhabi, try to get ready, first of all. We knew that we were strong last year, we have to see if we are competitive, but I’m confident we will be. With such a strong car under our belt, then we see where we are. We will see where we qualify, up to that point in qualifying we are both historically… we just try to get everything out of the car, then we will see where we are. Operating those cars on the limit, you are never certain of anything happening. The best proof is probably two weeks ago, ten laps to the end, the race was safe, everything was fine and then the engine pops. Things can be out of your hands. So we go there, try to qualify as high up as possible and then race hard and then see where we are. And then obviously in my case it’s pretty straightforward. The only thing I can do is try to optimise my result, get everything out of myself, ideally repeat the result we achieved today and then obviously it depends where those two guys are. For sure, you will have to judge according to the situation. I think both of us know how to act. We’ve had some moments which were probably not representative and which we’re not very proud of and we don’t want to repeat. So, full stop.
To cut a long story short, I think it depends on how it is on the last lap.
(Andrew Benson – BBC Sport) Sebastian, you gave a long answer to Ian’s question but you didn’t actually answer the question. As Fernando says, if you win the race, he only needs to be fourth to win the championship. If Mark wins the race, then Fernando would need to be second, so if you’re leading going into the last lap of Abu Dhabi with Mark second and Fernando third or fourth, will you let Mark by?
I think you will see then. I went to school, obviously, so I know what I can answer. There was a lot of talk before this race. In the end, the way the race unfolded it was all unnecessary. For me, it’s pretty straightforward. I go to Abu Dhabi, try to do my best, we have a strong car, I can rely on that and then we will see. What do you want to hear? I can only tell you in that scenario you are describing, I can only tell you what you think. I think it’s clear.
(Byron Young – Daily Mirror) Was that a yes?
It’s one week away. As a kid, I never liked it when my parents teased me for something and didn’t answer my question, so now I’m in a good position to tease you, so you will see.
