"I'm really looking forward to the British Grand Prix and racing in front of a sell-out crowd that's passionate about F1. Many of them will be there to cheer on the Brits, so there's some irony in the fact that Silverstone is actually the local track for both the Aussie F1 drivers on the grid. Daniel Ricciardo and I are based in Buckinghamshire! It's a great time of the year for British sport, with Wimbledon on at present and the Olympic games just around the corner. I'm sure the British Grand Prix won't disappoint. We're going to Silverstone with one goal in mind and that's to win!"
"Even after the track was amended for the 2011 race, it didn't lose its magic. For me as a driver it is one of the best and interesting tracks of all. The atmosphere is great. British fans enthusiastically support their countrymen, but at the same time they're very objective and fair in judging the performance of the non-British drivers. On top of that they are experts about F1. The track is demanding for a driver and provides everything a driver likes, including the unpredictable weather which is possible in July in Silverstone."
FACES FOR CHARITY
Thousands of fans will have their faces on Mark and Sebastian's cars next weekend as part of an initiative, which has raised One Million Euros - Faces for Charity.
All donations will go to Wings for Life – a charity that is seeking to find a cure for spinal cord injuries. The livery will run for the entire weekend.
