..and now it's time for everybody's favorite part of F1 UPDATE!, the *QUOTES OF THE RACE:

"Get used to it, boys, I'll be here all season long." - Fernando Alonso.

"Even though I am twenty three points behind Alonso, I don’t think the fight for the championship is over. I also don't think that stopping on the track to slow my competetors down during qualifying is wrong, so take that for what it's worth." - Michael "Parky" Schumacher.

"Mmrmmbrbmb brmmrmbmm mbrbmmbrbldbm." - Kimi Raikonnen.

"PLEASE let me drive Renault next year! PLEE-HE-HE-HEEEESE!!!" - Giancarlo Fisichella.

"I did not have any particular problems during the race, even though I had no more sets of new tyres, having used all of them in free practice and qualifying." - Felipe Massa, finding new ways to blame anything but himself.

"Mmmm... perforated McLaren no drive so good." - JP Montoya, who actually had a pretty good race, considering the swiss cheese Jack Newtown made of his right sidepod

"Can someone tell me how my start went? I had my eyes closed." - Quick Nick Heidfeld.

"People told me married men go slower, but I think it is the opposite!" - Jack Newtown in a real quote. His wife confirms, he's still fast.

"Last year, I was on the podium all the time. This year, I'm not. F1 is hard!" - Nico Rosberg, expecting us to feel sorry for him, maybe?

"*incoherent sobbing*" - Rubens Barrichello.

"It was always going to be a hard day's work out there from the back of the grid, but I enjoyed it." - Jarno Trulli, in a real quote. Of course he enjoyed it; there were no expectations of him.

"Bitchbitchbitchbitchpantsbitch." - David Coulthard's Chin.

"BlahblahblahblahblahV10blahblahblahblah. So, to sum it up - a good result." - Vitantonio Liuzzi, in a paraphrasing of his real quote.

"The race was a disaster for me. In fact, much of my career has been a disaster for me, so I don't know why this is much of a surprise." - Christian Klien.

"Our start was terrible: everybody passed me when I let out the clutch and I had to overtake two Super Aguris on the first lap..." - Christijan Albers, discovering that life could be worse...

"I used all my tires during quals. Who knew making it to the second round would make life so difficult?" - Tiago Montiero.

"We were quite off the pace today and it was a tough race for us." - Takuma Sato. SuperAguri is considering making this their motto.

"We were quite off the pace today and it was a tough race for us." - Franck "The Barber" Montagnie.

"Don't tell the engineers... I planned the engine blowup. Wanted to get a good seat for the WC match." - Jensen Button, English to the end.

"I don't think he was expecting me to be there." - American Scott Speed, passing the buck to...



And so, the British GP comes to an end, as does this edition of F1 UPDATE! We'll be back for the Canadian GP, though, so don't you go nowhere!

Well, you can go to work, and stuff. We don't expect you to click refresh 24 hours a day for the next 14 days, after all...

1 Heh, I use the rss feed, I just know when you post

I think it was before practice that ITV showed an interview with Schumacher where he appeared to be apologising, but I am sure it was the fact that English is not his mother tongue that meant it sounded a lot like "I'm sorry you think I did something wrong".

2 ...which is not the same as saying "I did something wrong, I'm sorry."

Parky knows english perfectly well. He knows what he said.

3 Why is Shumaker still racing, after such an unsportsmanlike display? Why will the other racers still have him on the track?

4 A fine question, that. I'm not sure they DO want him on the track. Unfortunately, there's nothing the Grand Prix Racer's Association can actually DO to him.

Unless the other drivers all walk out, refuse to get in their cars... and the Parky incident probably doesn't warrant that... Schumacher is perfectly clear to drive.
