Mark Webber: "I am looking forward to returning to the famous Nurburgring, with its numerous corners and unpredictable weather there is always something happening on-track. I have raced here with F3000 and managed second in 2001. Even last year with Minardi I enjoyed the circuit and I believe that this year in the R4 it will be even more fun. They changed the track a little last year and I hear that they have been doing some more changes this year also, so it will be good to get on track this Friday and see what they have done. Since Canada we have been really busy with a three-day test, working on various areas of the car including aerodynamics and tyres with Michelin. Again, the tyre record for Michelin at the Ring is good so we will be looking to continue with our reliability improvements and fight for some more championship points. Now that we have reached the halfway mark in the season, I would like to be rewarding both the factory team and Cosworth Racing and Pi Research with points on a more regular basis. The middle field is incredibly competitive so the remainder of the season promises to be anything but dull!"

Before Michael Schumacher – or anyone else – had driven the 191 (or 911 as it was initially called), Eddie Jordan turned to a fellow Irishman to test his new Formula 1 car. JOHN WATSON, a grand prix winner for Penske and McLaren, recalls his role in the birth of a legend…
OPINION: The headlines were dominated by the Italian Grand Prix crash between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton, who had the halo to thank for avoiding potentially serious injury. But two days earlier, Formula 1 had a lucky escape with a Monza pitlane incident that could also have had grave consequences
With two sprint races under its belt, Formula 1 must now consider its options for them going forward. While they've helped deliver exciting racing on Sundays, the sprints themselves have been somewhat lacking - creating yet another conundrum for F1 to solve...
OPINION: With Valtteri Bottas already signed up for 2022, all eyes are on the race for the second seat at Alfa Romeo next year. Antonio Giovinazzi is the current incumbent, but faces a tough competition from appealing short and long-term prospects
