Malaysia Sunday quotes: Pirelli

Motorsport Director Paul Hembery: "If we thought the Australian Grand Prix was good, then Malaysia was something else! Thankfully the weather stayed dry, which meant that we were able to see our tyres performing without the rain factor. The Malaysian Grand Prix turned into a battle of strategy and bravery from start to finish, where choosing the right tyres at the right time was absolutely crucial.

"Once those vital decisions had been made, it then became a question of looking after the tyres in the best way possible, to make the choices really count in these very punishing conditions. All three drivers on the podium today were able to underline their extraordinary talents in this area, with the tyres playing a vital role in setting up a series of battles that went down to the very final lap.

"In particular I'd like to congratulate Nick Heidfeld who was our very first test driver when our Formula One tyres first took to the track in August last year. After such a breath-taking race though there's no actual time to draw breath, as now we head straight to China for yet another new challenge ' and hopefully just as thrilling a spectacle."
