What They're Saying

"I cannot control, of course, what they do with other drivers, but at least I want to be in control with what I'm releasing. That's what we're going to do. I hope, of course, that it's going to be good, because I also understand that Netflix really helped a lot for the popularity, especially in the U.S." -- Red Bull F1 driver Max Verstappen, who did not cooperate with producers for the fourth season of "Drive to Survive," explaining why he is now open to working with the show (REUTERS, 7/1).

"First of all, I want to appeal directly to this group of people and strongly urge you to not put yourselves, the drivers, as well as the many marshals, volunteers and members of the public, at risk. Going onto a live racetrack is extremely dangerous -- if you go ahead with this reckless plan you are jeopardising lives" -- Northamptonshire Police Event Commander Chief Inspector Tom Thompson, on demonstrators' planned protests during this weekend's British F1 GP (MOTORSPORT.com, 7/1).
