#F1 Formula 1 drivers are not universally behind the introduction of the Halo in 2018, with Max Verstappen among those claiming he doesn’t understand why it is required.

Max: "I don’t like it, but of course at the end of the day you have to respect the decision of the FIA. I think since we introduced a Virtual Safety Car, that has reduced a lot of risk of speeding under the yellow flags in the race. Also, with the wheel tethers they are quite strong at the moment so you won’t lose a wheel very easily, and when there are parts flying around the car it isn’t really going to protect you."
"So, I don’t really understand why we should need it.

#F1 Ron Dennis could walk away from McLaren with a collection of the team's most valuable historic cars, but only if the company fails to pay him what it still owes him for his shares.

Official documents show that the cars are security in relation to a deferred payment of £37.5m, which Dennis is due to receive in respect of the agreement made with the remaining shareholders on June 7.
Zak Brown confirmed at the British GP that the funding required to buy Dennis out has been raised, noting that "it's done."

#F1 Honda and Sauber have agreed to call off their deal for the Japanese manufacturer to supply the latter with Formula 1 engines in 2018.

Yamamoto (Honda General Manager): "We had built a good relationship with Sauber, and had been looking forward to entering the 2018 F1 season together. However, during discussions after management changes at the team, we reached a mutual agreement to call off the project due to differences in the future directions of both parties. We would like to thank Sauber for their cooperation, and wish them all the best for their future.”

#F1 Max: "You can call me what you want: Mad Max, Max the wimp or whatever. It’s all about me. On track you have to be an asshole. Look at how Michael Schumacher behaved! At the end of the day, a Formula 1 driver must know how to win races and titles. He really should not think how to be a nice guy. Sebastian moaned again in the heat of our battle, but this is something I don’t care about. I do not expect him to send me a Christmas card, nor will he invite me to his next birthday party."

#F1 Formula 1 championship leader Sebastian Vettel says he is in "no rush" to sign a new deal with Ferrari, even though he sees no reason not to do so.

Vettel: "I am not in a rush. I don't think the team is in a rush. I think I have a good contact to the team, I think they would tell me otherwise. There is no problem, nothing wrong. I am enjoying it, being part of the Ferrari family. We are all focused and determined to get Ferrari back to where it belongs. That is our mission, our target and our goal and that is what we are working on. It is true I haven't got a contract yet, but the primary object is not to look at papers and worry about those, it is to make sure we get some good results."

#F1 Haas F1 driver Romain Grosjean has revealed he had a phone call with Mercedes boss Toto Wolff so as to resolve any lingering tensions in the aftermath of the British Grand Prix.

Romain: "I saw the comments and I wasn't very happy. I arranged a phone call – good news is, I have his phone number. We had a great phone call, we explained [ourselves]. I think there are tensions, they're fighting for the world championship, probably some of my words were reported to Toto but in a different way and then he got a bit upset. I didn't mean anything against Lewis or Mercedes, I was just saying that it cost me two positions on the grid. Starting P8 or P10 is a different matter in Formula 1 and we're all fighting for the same thing. So I do apologise I said the GPS wasn't good, which is not fair to Mercedes. But I'm still thinking that I was on the fast lap and I lost three tenths, so you know, it's a shame but it's behind. It's all good, we spoke with Toto, we're friends."

#F1 Force India team owner Vijay Mallya says he is "not giving up" on catching Red Bull for third place in this year's constructors' championship.

Vijay Mallya: "We should have had nine [double points finishes] at least, but eight out of 10 is pretty good. It’s very satisfying to see two good, competitive drivers. I couldn’t ask for more, two cars regularly in the points, it’s what we need. We’re up to 95 points in 10 races, we’ve never had this kind of points tally in the history of the team that I can remember. We’re 54 ahead of Williams, our nearest competitor, and slowly consolidating ourselves in fourth position."
