“The Audi and Toyota were faster than us in the beginning but we stayed in the game and improved when the track temperatures came down a bit. For a very long time the three cars at the front could equally have won the race, in the end we finished third. Congratulations to Toyota.”

“I’ve really, really enjoyed my time in the cockpit with Porsche and could never have envisaged having such a dynamic relationship with my two team-mates in the #1 919, Timo Bernhard and Brendon Hartley.
It’s been a sensational three years and off the back of three consecutive wins, I’m hoping we can continue our good form and finish this year strongly.”

“Of course hanging up my professional racing helmet is a very big decision but the timing is right for me – you certainly view things a bit differently when you get a bit older and your priorities in life change. As with my F1 career, it’s nice to making the decision on my own terms.”

'Of all the venues I’ve been to in the past 20 or so years of racing, Japan has always been a special place to go to. The whole country is crazy for motor sport and embrace us drivers regardless of which team we’re driving for or which country we’re from. The Japanese love Super GT, motor bike races, F1 and endurance racing.'

"I’m very lucky to have raced in Formula One and now, the FIA World Endurance Championship. Each series is unique in its own way, and each presents its own unique set of challenges."
