Welcome to F1Minute for the 15th August 2008.

The Valencia preview quotes are starting to trickle in now, and we have plenty of excitement from McLaren. Hamilton says he is enjoying the break for a chance to recharge his batteries but he’s also looking forward to getting to the new circuit. “I enjoy visiting new racetracks and I’m looking forward to getting into the cockpit on Friday morning. It looks like being an amazing track." He also says that although he doesn’t want to make any predictions about the championship, what he can say is that the key is to be consistent over the remaining races.

Whilst we’re on the subject of championships, Gerhard Berger has said that he’ll be sad to see Vettel go to Red Bull next year, but knows the driver has to move on to better things. He said: “He can do everything really and I am convinced that one day he will win the Formula 1 championship."

Finally, back to McLaren, Kovalainen says that his win in Hungary was great, but it really doesn’t change anything, he still thinks he has a lot to learn.

That’s it for today, I’ll be back tomorrow with another F1Minute.
