“We were not the club that we represent, I am so sorry.”

“There are some decisions that we had already made, and others that we will make over the next days”, he added.

He said,“Announcements will be made from next week, we need to make decisions after things have calmed down.”

“It was a devastating result. I congratulate Bayern, they played a great game and deserved to go to the semi-finals.

“We were not up to the occasion and we can only apologise to the members and fans.”

Russian GP – Race Preview

Russian Grand Prix can be a boring race so let's hope this race gets off to a great start. The only memory I have of the Russian GP is Valtteri Bottas letting Lewis Hamilton win.
