Lewis Hamilton on...
"We've got 18 more races - there is no reason why we can't try a different thing each week. We can make small subtle changes and make small steps but at the moment, we aren't making any steps.
"I think the fans have great ideas and ultimately the fans are the ones that are watching. I remember growing up watching the sport and year after year after year, it was the same and it can be boring. You want it to be a bit more exciting."
"I had the best start of the whole grid in China. I really did have the best start out of everyone, just I started last, I just found out."

"I don't want to be a commentator or stay and be in the sport, it is just not for me. It has been my opinion for a long time. I feel like there is a lot of people who are still in the sport, they just can't let go, I'm like 'let go already'.
"Me personally, I've been racing two thirds of my life so no doubt I'm going to be missing it, but I'm not going to come back. I don't want to come back and watch someone else drive the car I was driving. There is so much other stuff I can do."
"I don't think we have any frailties. Ultimately we are pushing the car to the limit, we've had the best reliability out of everybody over the last couple of years. We've had one weekend where two things went wrong and I think they are relatively quick fixes, we understood them. I think the car is pretty solid otherwise.
"My side has just been a bit unfortunate."
"I think they've showed their hand like we have showed our hand. I think they have pushed their car to the limit just like we have, but we have more to come and I'm sure they have more to come. If they have as much as us to come or if we have as much as them to come, time will tell."
