1Commenting on his move to McLaren team for 2010: Life is all about challenges - and, most important of all, it's about challenging yourself.
2About his McLaren team-mate Lewis Hamilton in 2010: Lewis is a phenomenal talent and a great guy. But all that mateyness stops when the lights go out.
3On being awarded the MBE (Member of the Order of the British Empire) in 2010: The past 12 months have provided me with such an exhilarating journey. We literally started with nothing, but had the belief, determination, and passion to take on the world and succeed...Everybody at Brawn GP played their part -- and it was down to their expertise, dedication, and hard work that we were able to achieve so much.
