“On Max, you can see there is a future champion coming together,” Wolff told reporters.

“Unbelievable talent and speed and I think once the raw edges are off, he is somebody that will be a world champion one day.

“In a few years, he will look at the footage of today and will maybe have his own opinion whether that was the right behaviour or not. But you can’t accelerate these things, this is a learning process.”

“Ocon should not have got himself in a tangle situation with the race leader.

“But Max diced with him… I don’t want to be critical of Max. It won’t make a difference anyway because he will continue to take risks, but he will learn.”

Fan made livery design of a possible McLaren Indycar, after the announcement that Fernando Alonso will contest the 2019 Indy 500. (Note the mistake!)

Hamilton: “I don’t know how important it is to go to new countries as such,”

“If you had the Silverstone Grand Prix and a London Grand Prix, it would be pretty cool.”

“We’ve got a lot of real racing history in England, Germany, Italy and now in the States it is starting to grow,” said Hamilton. “But you only have one event per year in those places.

“If it was my business, I’d be trying to do more events in those countries.

“I’ve been to Vietnam before and it is beautiful. I’ve been to India before to a race which was strange because India was such a poor place yet we had this massive, beautiful grand prix track made in the middle of nowhere. I felt very conflicted when I went to that grand prix.

“We had a grand prix in Turkey and hardly anyone came. Cool track, cool weekend but poor audience.”

“If you have the German Grand Prix and you’ve got a Grand Prix in Berlin, I think connecting to cities where a lot of people are is probably a good thing, not necessarily going to countries where they don’t know so much about Formula 1.”
