Amid all the excitement over the new champions, an important development for next year’s season is in the works. Williams are now expected to use Cosworth engines and the company will be able to re-tune them before the season starts to make them competitive…
"With Toyota already having confirmed that it is ending its customer supply deal at the end of this year, it means that Williams has now settled on a switch to Cosworth."
"For Sam there was also a degree of disbelief, as she slowly took in the fact that her brother had just fulfilled his lifelong dream. The champagne was brought out and we toasted our new World Champion, wishing that we could be zapped out to Brazil to share the moment. It was really moving when the BBC played a film montage of all the past British champions, finally showing Jenson up there with all the greats. We can’t wait to have him back home in London now for another celebration."
Brown said: "I want to send my warmest congratulations to Jenson Button for clinching the Formula One drivers' championship today in Brazil, on the same circuit that Lewis Hamilton won the drivers' championship last year. We can be proud that Jenson is the 10th British driver to win the title. His performances over the season with the new Brawn team have excited Formula One fans in Britain and across the world, and we look forward to his continuing success in the seasons ahead." That's nice. Hope we'll have a race we can watch him at next year, though…
"Typically, Brawn had found it all rather embarrassing when it was decided the team should be named after him. He said: 'We went through a lot of permutations. Pure Racing was one but it just didn't sound right. So someone suggested using my name and there weren't too many objections.'"

"A hearing date has now been set for November 24, where Briatore will bid to get his lifetime ban overturned and seek damages from the FIA." Added the the F1 Fanatic calendar.
"Second is the first loser. I'll just try to do my best in Abu Dhabi. Obviously the target is to win, as we have a winning car. I don't really care about second or third." I applaud his competitive sentiment! That's what I like to see in a sportsman.
