 Flavio Briatore - “I don't know what happened, the emotion. Like Fernando said before, he was thinking about what happened in 2005. I was thinking about what happened in my 15 years of Formula One. I think I needed some privacy,”
 Flavio Briatore - “The GP2 championship costs 0.65 percent of what the Formula One championship costs, ... I don't understand why GP2 cost 2.5 million and our team and other teams cost maybe between 300 and 500 million. I do not see what the difference is.”

He is also much calmer than Schumacher. Forget what you see in public - where Alonso is smiling and Schumacher is concentrated. I know them both very well and I promise you Fernando has the ice in his blood - more than Michael, who is boiling inside with feeling.”

Fernando did the job he needed to, and now I think it will be difficult for Raikkonen to catch him but the constructors' championship is much closer, and we will stay focused on that until the end.”
