Sebastian VETTEL: Yeah, I think incredible day. Not an easy race to start with. We knew we were on the dirty side but I think we had a good start. I saw that Nico (Hülkenberg) had a bit too much wheel spin and I just used my momentum to squeeze down the inside. He didn’t give a lot of room, but just enough. Then it was key for me to disappear in the distance, controlling the gap. The car felt fantastic. All throughout the race I was able to hold the gaps as I planned, so I could control the race from there. With the safety car in the end it was the right choice not to try to pull away too much, to have some tyres left. Then I focused on the first couple of laps, built a gap and then just brought the car home. It is pretty incredible. I don’t know what to say really. Incredible effort from the team. Not an easy season, especially with races we just had in Korea. I think it was the right answer for all the people to come back here, never mind what happened in Korea, just stay focused and the whole team pulling on one string and getting us both up here, one-two, and getting the Constructors’ Championship one race before the end. I think it is fantastic. We are still fighting for the Drivers’. I want to get rid of this guy (Alonso), but it is an unbelievable achievement. I am very proud, regards to all the people in the team, in the factory in Milton Keynes, but also in Austria. They have been starting this programme, this target, before I entered Formula One but it is nice now to be part of it. I am very proud. Proud of my team, of myself, so I would say a fantastic day.
