  1. Potty-mouthed Seb

    Vettel

    Anyway, let me leave you with this to finish off your weekend.

    If you like the sound of beeping noises - then you're in luck. Because this expletive-laden rant from Sebastian Vettel after his double shunt from Daniil Kvyat is tremendous.

    Bulls

    Niki Lauda on Sky Sports is asked about the conspiracy theories of Mercedes favouritism towards Nico Rosberg over team-mate Lewis Hamilton.

    He responds by likening it to excrement from a male cow.

    He added: "They are simple human mistakes that anyone can do."

    And then he apologises for his potty mouth.

  8. Emphatic Rosberg

    Since his retirement at this track last October, Nico Rosberg has won seven of eight races and come second in the other.

    Lewis Hamilton won in Russia last year, wrapped up the title in the next race in the USA and has not won since.

    Luper Daniel Saror: Ha! Do I see another Lewis Hamilton/Felipe Massa situation developing with Sebastian Vettel and Daniil Kvyat?

    Trevor Kafoteka: Anyone who thinks Nico Rosberg is a done deal for the champs, think again...I still back Lewis Hamilton for the season.

  10. 'The mechanics worked until 2am'

    Hamilton also pays tribute to his team for flying over replacement parts from the team's base in Brackley to allow him to start the race without a grid penalty.

    He tells Sky Sports: "I would like to thank the guys who flew over from the factory and the mechanics who worked until 2am to get my car ready. Without that I wouldn't have got to this point.

    On the water pressure issue which saw him hold off challenging Rosberg: "It happened and I had to nurse it home.

    "I'm just happy the car finished. It was another issue leading to a failure. I've got a long way to go with not a lot of engines."

  11. 'No reason to believe conspiracy theories'

    Sky Sports ask Lewis Hamilton about the conspiracy theories regarding Mercedes favouritism towards Rosberg.

    Here's his reply:

    "All I can say is that my side of the garage are having a hard time. I have every confidence and faith in them. It's unusual for them - the majority were on Nico's car last year and Nico's guys were with me for three years. We swapped for no apparent reason but that is not the reason we're having issues.

    "Don't jump the gun. It's not happened in the last three years (favouritism) and I have no reason to think that's happening now."

    More Hamilton reaction on its way...

  13. Is there room chez Rosberg for all these trophies?

  14. 'Our race was totally screwed at first corner'

    Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has acknowledged that his driver Daniil Kvyat was at fault for the first-corner incident that eliminated Sebastian Vettel.

    Horner also tells Sky Sports that both Red Bull cars were seriously damaged in the incident.

    He said: "Our race was totally screwed at the first corner. Daniil misjudged his braking and hit the rear of Seb who in turn hit Daniel as well.

    "It was obviously a mistake from Daniil Kvyat. I think he knows what happened - we could have scored sound points today."

  15. 'All the mess came from me'

    Daniil Kvyat speaks on Sky Sports about his double collision with Sebastian Vettel: "There was a bit going on. I started to press the brake but there was not much in it (the brake) and the first contact came from that. The second touch I couldn't see what was going on ahead and I couldn't react.

    "All the mess came from me. It doesn't feel great but sometimes this happens in F1. Usually I learn from it. I apologise to everyone who was involved. I think we all need to talk. It's easy to attack me and I guess everyone will and I'm OK with that."

    It puts Kimi fifth on the all-time list of podiums.

    Vaishach: My mom saw F1 for the first time and asked why Kimi isn't smiling. Of course Kimi doesn't smile. Kimi is Kimi was my reply.

    Reece Dawson: The talk normally is tyres that can't be pushed for full race, seems the cars can't do it anymore either.

  18. 'Lewis is going to come back'

    More from race winner Nico Rosberg, who steadfastly refuses to get carried away. OIn the surface at least.

    He said: "It's four races from 21 - Lewis is going to come back of course. He's on it and as motivated as ever.

    "We have an incredible car and we just want to win races."

  19. Out on their own

    To put Ferrari's historic significance in F1 into context - their 700 podiums is 225 more than the next highest of McLaren.

  20. Post update

    Third-placed Kimi Raikkonen secured Ferrari's 700th podium and he expresses his delight by showing absolutely no emotion on his wonderful Finnish face.

    "Of course it's not exactly what we want - we want to win races but we tried today, I had a pretty OK start and managed to get past Valtteri on the first lap," he says.

    "After the re-start we didn't have the pace. Not fast enough for Mercedes. We had good speed but with fuel saving we have to take some measures."
