Schumacher, Raikkonen tipped as eighth different winner in Valencia

Former world champions Michael Schumacher and Kimi Raikkonen have both been tipped to extend the streak of different winners in the 2012 F1 season to eight. Renault's Finnish star has had steering issues but stated his desire to add Valencia to his GP win list. Meanwhile Pirelli boss Paul Hembery mooted Schumacher based on his Monaco performance, a sentiment echoed by Caterham's Heikki Kovalainen.

massa   Felipe Massa
How come nobody mentioned me? I've won in Valencia before, I think I can be the eighth different winner.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Hmmm Massa, the odds of you winning on Sunday are on a par with those of Saddam Hussein getting a posthumous Nobel Peace Prize.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
I'm totally going to win on Sunday and end the streak Nando. Felipe better not come near me and wreck my buzz.
massa   Felipe Massa
I have nothing to lose Lewis, if you try to overtake me I'll get you back for all the races you ruined for me last season.
hammy   Lewis Hamilton
Don't touch me man, don't frickin touch me.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Ah, such maturity. Remember Massa, your old buddy Fernando has a say in who his teammate will be for next season. Bear that in mind if you hear this on Sunday. "Fernando is faster than you, can you confirm you understood that message?"
nico   Nico Rosberg
I consider myself lucky to have learned from you Michael, and that I ended Mercedes' win drought, and finished every race. Given your status as team leader it would be great if you could overcome all your problems and pull off this victory to remind everyone else of your greatness.
Heikki   Heikki Kovaleinen
Heikki think Michael is good, Heikki think Michael can win.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Thanks Heikki, I might have a chance if you can thin the field by repeating your role as a launch-ramp in Valencia. As for you Britney, don't get too smart now you've won 1.1% as many races as I have, and remember old fart Schumi equalled your career pole tally in Monaco.
nico   Nico Rosberg
I can only hope to emulate your brilliance on street circuits, and having reminded everyone of your mastery of Monaco it was a shame you were demoted, even if it meant I started on the front row. I stand by my comments that now we have what I consider the best car, I think we can win every race.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
Have you been sniffing your hairspray again Britney? If by some miracle you do win every single race from here on then I'm delighted to inform you that you'll equal my total of F1 victories shortly after the Olympics... in 2016. Best of luck.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Jeez Raikkonen, they're talking about you winning now, beats arsing around in a rally car doesn't it? By the way, is it true Renault have designed six different steering wheels for you this season and you've asked for a seventh?
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Spare me the long-winded explanation. I don't get it, you turn the steering wheel, the car turns, simple.
TrulyJarno   Jarno Trulli
One must appreciate the complexities of steering Fernando, as one must deal with the intricacies of life itself, mysterious and beautiful as it may be. Lotus' inadequate steering system last year meant that my senses were not at one with those of the car, prompting a premature end to my career.
fernando   Fernando Alonso
Not premature enough. I thought we'd heard the end of the classic steering wheel excuse when you retired Trulli. Anyway, you can drown your sorrows with that putrid plonk of yours.
TrulyJarno   Jarno Trulli
I feel my maturity will be missed as the branches miss their leaves in winter. F1 should treasure those who have aged with the seasons, as I treasure the succulent grapes that mean that every bottle of wine from my exclusive Abruzzo vineyard evokes wistful echoes of the past, fleeting fancies of the present, and dreamy glimpses of the future.
mschumi   Michael Schumacher
I missed you Trulli. An old saying springs to mind here. A bad workman blames his... steering wheel.
IceMan   Kimi Raikonnen
I was having a shit.
