We shared some dinners and things,
Look at Hungary, where we were expecting very hot conditions and a difficult weekend. In the end, we did very well there. Here, like in Spa, the weather could play its part. So, I am in a strong frame of mind and will go to the track thinking I can fight for the win. I would love to do well in Brazil. That is my main target for this end of the season.
He is going to have a tough time, absolutely,
I feel that the Honda is always very powerful and I`m very much looking forward to working with them.
There is a good motivation for the team to have someone who is still young and motivated to win and to transform everything in a good way. I am not going there to actually say `change this, change that` I am going there to learn how the team works and I am bringing the 13 years of experience to make that a winning team.
I told the team I would have no problem with anyone, so it is up to the team to decide what`s the best option, ... Obviously there are various options in place but I have no further comment. I have no problems, Jenson is definitely a good guy, he is one of the friends I have in the paddock so it would definitely have been no problem, but it is BAR Honda that has to decide what is the best option alongside myself.
But the rest is up to him to show his speed.
In performance terms, I have always gone well here, ... However, looking at the current situation, both in theory and in practice, we do not have a car capable of delivering a win. Nevertheless, I will face the weekend in a positive frame of mind, as you never know what might happen.
I think that would be impossible, ... It would be a lack of respect, to stop now and say I don`t care any more what is going on at Ferrari. If we can still fight for the Constructors` championship I would leave Ferrari with six (titles) rather than five and that would be much better for myself and the achievement would be great.
I am very happy about it,
