fernando   Fernando Alonso
It's nice to feel wanted, would you not agree Massa?
massa   Felipe Massa
Congratulations. My emotional bond with the team should see my contract extended Fernando.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
I think they extended your contract already by allowing you to complete it. End of 2012 I believe. By the time I'm done in 2016 I'll have forgotten who you were.
wibbah   Mark Webber
I think Felipe and myself should get new contracts too based on our previous performances.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Juan Manuel Fangio is deserving of a new contract based on previous performances, but that's not likely to happen now either, is it guys?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Strange how Mark is considered old and is on a rolling contract, yet I am 6 years older, on a three year contract, and on about 10 times the money.
sbstnvtl   Sebastian Vettel
Maybe you are on 15 times his money because you won 15 times as many races as him Michael?
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I'm guessing Britney doesn't paid at all then on that basis.
Horner   Christian Horner
We like to keep our contract flexible Michael, hence the rolling contract with Mark, Seb is a little different.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Mark's contract is pretty flexible alright, almost as flexible as your front wings.
Horner   Christian Horner
It's called rake Michael, we run more rake.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
In my day we just called it cheating, in order to avoid confusing any gardening enthusiasts.
Ambrosia   Jerome d'Ambrosio
Should I also use the term cheating Michael, the rake thing always confuses me.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Go right ahead Ambrosio, the stewards will know exactly what you mean.
