Michael Schumacher: "I think more than fifth place would not have been possible today [Sunday] but making up 19 places was a good feeling. With all my family, friends and fans here, it was an extra motivation, and I would like to thank all of them for their support.
"They saw an exciting race with a great strategy from our team. So all in all, for me, there was a lot of emotion and a lot of overtaking today [Sunday]. At the beginning I was a bit afraid that some of the flying parts might hit and damage my car, but I was lucky that nothing happened.
"After that, I had big fun hunting and making my way forward."
Nico Rosberg: "It was a special feeling to be leading the race in a Silver Arrow at this amazing circuit. It was great to see the traffic jam behind me with the Red Bull, McLaren and Ferrari cars, but it was hard to realise that we just don't have the pace to stay at the top.
"However we have made progress this weekend and today [Sunday] was a good result for theteam. I had to push quite hard at the start and in the middle which cost me a little towards the end, which combined with Michael being on the faster soft tyres, meant that I wasn't able to keep him behind me.
"Now I'm looking forward to Monza and I'm confident that we can improve further."
Vitaly Petrov: "I think we've made a big step forward with the car, and you can see that I was in top ten contention for all of the race - and close to the Mercedes - so we need to keep working in this direction. Our strategy was good, however we lost out on our top speed which meant I found it very difficult to overtake.
"The car was very strong on the corners, and we were very good on the brakes until I had issues at the end. For the final laps I was driving differently to compensate for the brake concerns, but unfortunately I spun right at the end as I had totally lost my front brakes.
"Looking at the performance of the weekend, overall I'm quite happy."
Bruno Senna: "Unfortunately I made a mistake in the first corner, which cost me the chance of really causing a stir at the top end for the remainder of the race. So, firstly I would like to say sorry to Jaime [Alguersuari] for that.
"I made a mistake in the braking area, so that meant I slipped back and couldn't compete where I wanted to; this left me quite lonely at the back for a while! However, once I'd paid the price with the drive through penalty I was able to start making some progress and my race pace was actually quite strong, so I kept pushing and was pleased with how I drove from then on.
"Obviously I would like to have finished higher, considering my grid position, but I've now got a good pace to build on and take me through to Monza, which is another of my favourite tracks. We'll sit down and learn where we can improve but the foundations are there."
Pastor Maldonado: "I'm really happy to score a point for both myself and for the team. It is a big improvement. During the race our pace was very consistent so I'm happy for that and I'm also pleased for my country.
"Finally we have some points and it's even better to get them here at such a special track. It was a hard race starting from the back, but I was pushing every single lap."
Rubens Barrichello: "We ended up being more competitive than we thought which is a great thing. I lost time fighting with Rosberg during the in lap for my second pit stop which was unfortunate as it lost me time and points which I think I could have scored.
"I am very happy for Pastor that he has got his first points though. Either of us could have scored today [Sunday] which is encouraging as the team is making progress."
