Mika Hakkinen: 'I'm focusing on securing my first points of the 2001 season and the whole team is optimistic that we will leave Malaysia with a good result.' 'I enjoy driving at Sepang as it offers a good mixture of corners and fast straights, the only downside is the humidity, but as long as we maintain our fluid intake I can't see this being a problem. I left Australia on the Sunday after the race to go back and spend some time with my family and am now ready for round two.'

David Coulthard: 'We are looking forward to building on and improving the result obtained at the previous race in Australia and will be working hard to achieve the desired outcome. With the opportunities Sepang offers to overtake it should be an exciting race for both the teams and the fans. I enjoyed a few days holiday in Australia and have done a lot of training to be in top shape for the hot and humid conditions in Malaysia.'

Ron Dennis: 'In Australia David demonstrated the potential of the MP4-16 with his second place and the whole team has been working hard since then to ensure that this potential is fully harnessed. We have been testing at Magny Cours and are confident that we are in good shape.'
