ďThis win means a lot to keep in the fight in the championship. We know there are still four races to go but it seems we can be competitive in any track, so thanks to the team. Great job at the factory. Great job at the track as well getting 100 per cent of our potential all the time, so letís see in the remaining races. Forza Ferrari!- Fernando Alonso
ďI think we have a very competitive car this year on all circuits, so we can be confident. Last year was very good and I think we should get a good result again. Ferrari has made a step forward in the last couple of races, so they will be strong and donít forget McLaren. There are still a lot of drivers fighting for the title and they are very close to each other, itís tight and a lot of things can still happen. We need to make sure we get the best out of ourselves and then weíll see.Ē - Sebastian Vettel
ďIím optimistic we can do well in Japan and the team did well there last year. The momentum is currently with Ferrari going into the race, as they have had two victories on the bounce, but the points situation is still very open. Itís nice that I have a little buffer, itís not very big but itís something I would rather have than not. Suzuka is a track that all the drivers love and Iím looking forward to it. I think we will be very competitive; we need to go there and get the maximum out of what we have.Ē-Mark Webber
ďSuzuka is very much unfinished business for me. I raced the best I could last year, but our car just wasnít fast enough. This year, Iím holding nothing back - I need a strong result to get my title hopes back on track, and that will be my complete focus from the moment I first sit in the cockpit on Friday morning. Now is not the time to hold back; now is the time to fight.Ē-Lewis Hamilton
ďI think the world championship is still completely open: obviously, thereís no room for mistakes, but any of the top five drivers could easily steal the title. It might seem a disadvantage to be behind in the points standings, but, make no mistake, I know I can win this championship. Iím still as determined as ever to keep the number one on my car for 2011.-Jenson Button
