    Michael Schumacher:
    He was very relaxed. Wrote comparatively much, but still hard to collect. One has to know where he is staying at which time. One evening he was playing poker with Kubica, Heidfeld, Fisichella, Rosberg, Briatore and Ecclestone. He finished the game at 1 o’clock in the morning. Then we got the nicest signatures ever.

    Sebastian Vettel:

    All the time Sebastian was surrounded by his fans when he was on his way from the Red Bull hospitality to the pit lane. He tried to write many autographs, but it was very difficult because of the hectic around and because of the bodyguards. When he was able to sign his signature was ugly.
