Europe Sunday quotes: Pirelli

Paul Hembery: "Valencia is meant to be a circuit that is incredibly difficult to overtake on, but that didn't seem to be the case today as there were so many times when you didn't know where to look next! Valencia is an incredibly tough track, as could be seen from the number of retirements this afternoon, and Fernando did an incredible job to win from 11th place.

"The final run to the flag was particularly interesting with the top three cars on similar strategies until Lewis Hamilton was involved in a crash and Michael Schumacher came through. So it was a fascinating opportunity for us to see how the cars and drivers managed the tyres on a level playing field, particularly when it came to the final laps. Congratulations also to Schumacher and Mercedes: it's fantastic to see a great champion like him back on the podium - in the company of two other great champions, who did an equally impressive job."
