James Allison


Last quote by James Allison

This regulation change was designed to make it incredibly difficult to win again. So to do something that no team in the sport's history has ever managed -- to stay in the mix, and to come out on top, after a major rules change -- is just the most enormous credit to everybody involved in the team from top to bottom. It is simply not possible to win a championship without their skill, dedication and, in many cases, sacrifice. It is a truly brilliant feeling to be part of a team capable of doing this.feedback

Jul 15 2017

That lack of handling balance steals lap time away from you and makes the car unable to fulfill its full potential unless you find a way to balance it on any given weekend.feedback

Jul 08 2017

If I am completely honest, we had hoped for a little more this afternoon, but it seems churlish to be anything other than delighted by a splendid pole position for Valtteri and third place for Lewis, whose performance in Q2 showed that he has plenty of race pace to unleash tomorrow. It will surely be an interesting Grand Prix, dodging the possible rain showers and making the most of our potential at this deceptively tricky track.feedback

Jun 11 2017

Not every Grand Prix win can deliver the same breathless cut and thrust of the race we saw one month ago in Barcelona - but this is nonetheless an extremely satisfying team result after the disappointment of Monaco a fortnight ago. We came racing back on all cylinders here and made important headway in both championships. It's our first one-two finish of this season and will allow us to approach the next race in Baku with a spring in our step.feedback

Jun 10 2017

This is another race weekend where we knew that we were right in the fight - but had no idea if we had enough performance to put our car on pole position. What makes it such a sweet feeling is to see two immaculate laps and a really commanding performance from Lewis. Valtteri was unable to improve on his final run, but nevertheless retained a strong P3 which puts us in good stead for the Grand Prix. The feeling of being on pole is absolutely fantastic but, of course, we have it all to do again tomorrow.feedback

May 12 2017

The team has done an amazing job with the upgrades. The car is working just as we expected, it's been a much better start to the weekend for me than in Sochi, so I'm very happy.feedback

We are many people in Ferrari. Each of us has his role which is an important role -- there is not one more important or less important in the team. What we've done since July, I think... it's a great team with great engineers. It's simply making sure that everybody was delivering, being accountable, feeling accountable and getting the right team spirit.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Bahrain

It will be different again tomorrow when everyone has their cars full of fuel -- then we are sure to have our work cut out. We're expecting the weather to change a fair bit for tomorrow, both windier and cooler. But it will be normal fare for Bahrain - tough on the brakes, tough on the drivers. It'll be a long, hard toil, but hopefully we'll end up at the front. It's going to be super tight.feedback

Apr 16 2017 - Bahrain

A first pole for Valtteri and it feels excellent. It's lovely to have a front-row lockout and it's a great reward to Valtteri for three excellent laps in qualifying today. We are all really happy. The gap to Ferrari is a little larger than in the first two races but rather than being surprised we're just grateful for that small bit of breathing space.feedback

Missing Friday means we go into qualifying and the race not knowing as much about the tyres as we'd like. For example how long they will last and what the performance difference is between the compounds -- and those data are the basis for your race strategy. We'll miss the time for set-up tweaking to fine-tune the balance as well, but these days you arrive at the track with a pretty good balance so we shouldn't be hurt too badly.feedback

The nature of modern Formula One is that, even if it's wet in practice, we limit the amount of running because you don't want to spin off or damage the car and be on the back foot for the rest of the weekend. So most of the time when the drivers use the Wet tyres it's a voyage of discovery for them -- and that's where you see their ability really come to the fore. We are fortunate that, in situations like this, our two drivers have the skills to limit any disadvantage. Saturday should be the best of the three days in term of weather but Sunday is looking quite troublesome.feedback

Mar 29 2017

If it wasn't already clear after qualifying, then it's certainly clear now that this is going to be a season of very small margins. We got a good getaway from the flag. But credit to Ferrari, they had a very quick car and we just weren't quite good enough to stick with them.feedback
