"Superb wheel-to-wheel action " fantastic for the fans." - Jenson's reaction to yesterday's #ItalianGP here: "This wasn't the result I was after " but the was good fun nonetheless. It's just a pity that we didn't quite have the race pace we'd hoped for: when you start fifth and sixth, you're not just looking for a points finish, you want a bit more than that. "If we'd had a clear run, I think we could have done a bit better " but, in the traffic, it was easier for the cars around us to pick us off than it was for us to pick them off. "I had an amazing battle with Checo " we took the first Lesmo side by side, which doesn't happen very often. It's a pity I couldn't get past him " I tried so many times " but he was so strong under braking that to match him into the turns I was locking up the fronts and the rears, which left me struggling for position on the exits. "But I was really on the limit. It was superb wheel-to-wheel action " I hope it was great entertainment for the spectators and fantastic TV for the fans at home."

Race day!!! See more thoughts from yesterday's #FP3 & #Quali: "We've looked pretty good all weekend, and we gradually tweaked the set-up and balance through every session. On my final flying lap in Q3, I didn't get a clean middle sector " I lost a little bit of time through the Lesmos " but we probably qualified better than expected. "I'm a little surprised at how quick the Williams cars have been " we didn't expect them to be that far in front of us " but we're the third-best team on single-lap pace, which is nice. "I think things will be a bit more competitive in the race: our Friday long-runs proved somewhat tricky for us, so we'll be aiming for a better race tomorrow. It'll be hotter on Sunday, too, which could potentially help us, so we'll see what happens in the race."
