"The thing that I would just add on the Madrid announcement is that we’ve got new engine regulations coming in, and then the talk is of the difficulties they’re going to have in extracting consistent performance from the cars."
"So this move towards a tighter, twistier circuit, you know, it is going in the direction of, let’s say, Formula E, which has chosen to have its races in city centers and also on very, it has to be said, restricted circuits."
"So I hope that’s not an indication of a few concessions made towards the fact that these cars are going to be down on performance compared to where they are now."
"But the fact is that Formula 1 has to adapt to new demands placed on it from a car manufacturing point of view as well as a government imposing correct environmental questions."
"I hope it’ll be an exciting circuit, and the most important thing is that the racing is exciting, and the cars can race there, and then we’ll be happy."
