United States GP: Pirelli Sunday quotes

Paul Hembery: "We'd like to thank all the fans who came in their hundreds of thousands to Austin this weekend: the level of support and the welcome we received has been unbelievable and we can't wait to come back. Both the championship protagonists, Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso, drove magnificently today and the result is going to be a thrilling championship showdown in Brazil next weekend.

"Although in retrospect we could have come here with even the soft and the supersoft compounds, the fact that the title battle is now going down to the final round reinforces our decision not to introduce any unknown factors at a brand new circuit, where the title battle was so finely balanced. Levels of degradation were extremely low throughout the weekend, although this was also affected by ambient and track temperatures that were generally lower than expected. Performance and durability were extremely good on both compounds, allowing Vettel and Hamilton to race each other all the way to the flag."
