sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Who are these guys?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
It's a very dramatic situation Seb, they're like the Prost and Senna of the playground.
Toasty   Franz Tost
Toro Rosso is no playground. Our guys are as serious about F1 as anyone else.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Until they actually become any good and head off to Red Bull. Let's say breeding ground then.
Toasty   Franz Tost
That is not our main function Fernando. We are a separate entity and have our own unique image as the flamboyant party team in the paddock.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I think your main function is to raise awareness that Red Bull also make some kind of cola.
Liuzzi   Vitantonio Liuzzi
That's not true Fernando, you're forgetting I moved from Toro Rosso to Force India. I felt they had more to offer me.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
What, like a seat?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I'll give you this Liuzzi - your career progression has been linear and consistent, albeit in a downward direction. Red Bull to Hispania in 5 years, that's some going.
alguersuari   Jaime Alguersuari
Why do you say these things Sebastien? Just because I had you for breakfast and trashed you hands down in the last two races? I thought we were buddies.
SebB   Sebastien Buemi
Results don't matter Jaime. What counts is where I would have placed if I had not made any mistakes and everything had gone completely my way.
diResta   Paul di Resta
Totally agree Sebastien, my season has also been plagued by incidents completely out of my control. Otherwise Lewis and Jenson would be breathing down my neck, instead of me down theirs.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
You're a good 100 points from breathing down any McLaren driver's neck di Resta. Maybe you should concentrate on your own team mate first, who's got 5 times as many points as you.
bestofbritish   Jenson Button
You don't require points to breathe on this neck guys, but a gentle blow would go a long way.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Well Buemi, you're lucky you made it this far, I thought motor-racing was banned in Switzerland.
SebB   Sebastien Buemi
Yes Michael, the Swiss government banned it after the great Le Mans tragedy of 1955.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Maybe they'll ban all driving there after your tragic F1 career.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I heard McNish tried to stage his own Le Mans tragedy this year by launching himself over a guard-rail. Poor Kristensen didn't even drive a lap.
TomK_8   Tom Kristensen
A ninth Le Mans title would have been little if any consolation if anything happened to either Allan or the innocent marshalls and spectators cowering from the shower of debris from his careless, impetuous, and ill-timed pass of a GT car.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Heartbreaking Tom, to be honest I'd rather win the senior mixed doubles at Wimbledon 9 times than Le Mans.
johnny   Johnny Herbert
Here's Johnny! You sniveling, moaning, groveling bunch of pansies. I won Le Mans when men were men, cars were lethally dangerous, and a blond bombshell called Johnny Herbert was the difference between winning and losing.
Louise   Louise Goodman
Go go! Go Johnny go go go!
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Funny Louise, that's exactly what Flavio used to say to him at Benetton but it never worked.
