F1 engine suppliers Ferrari and Renault appear to have won a battle in the long-running 'freeze' saga.
Bernie Ecclestone determined to change 2016 engine rules.
An extreme proposal to equalise engine performance in F1 does not even have the support of Renault works team Red Bull.
Toto Wolff has hit back at claims F1 is heading into a spending war because of Mercedes' attitude amid the engine 'unfreeze' debate.
Toto Wolff has defended Mercedes after being slammed by Red Bull's Christian Horner.
Pastor Maldonado: "The important thing is we finished all 70 laps so we have plenty of information to make further improvements to the car.”
Christian Horner: “A fantastic grand prix and the performance by Daniel today was truly sensational."
Ricardo Penteado: "JEV did a great job while Daniil was unlucky to spin on his fastest lap..."
Pastor Maldonado: “Everything on the car was working well until the second from last corner."
Romain Grosjean: “The car feels pretty reasonable here even if we missed a lot of the afternoon session because of a problem with the cooling system."
Daniil Kvyat: "I suddenly lost drive and I then saw smoke and later flames in the mirrors."
Daniil Kvyat: "The team did a great job in adjusting to the conditions out there and we managed to do a solid job, also considering where we qualified compared to some of our usual competitors."
Romain Grosjean qualified in fifteenth and Pastor Maldonado nineteenth after a searing hot qualifying session at the Hockenheimring for the German Grand Prix.
Thierry Salvi: "Staying close to the front will be difficult tomorrow, but on this old style track everything is possible.”
Sebastian Vettel: “I think we can improve from there for tomorrow. I don’t think not having the FRIC suspension on the car made too much difference to us today..."
The E22 ran for the first time without the suspension hydraulically linked from front to rear.
