I've split this out from the website errors thread in case anyone else was wondering the same thing...

 

The driver quotes have been moved to the Forix page for each driver. We've been working to create a hub for each driver's participation in each race for a while now, and the quotes are a part of this. There's now a single page where you can see all of a driver's stats for the weekend, including their lap chart and full lap times, practice times, etc. as well as the weekend quotes. You do this by driver (selecting other drivers from the dropdown menu on the left):

You can also view these by team, including team and Team Principle quotes as well as teammate comparisons:

I appreciate the changes. However if it is possible to retain those forix link(s) in the main site's F1 hub (http://www.autosport.com/f1/) ? Such that makes user easier to access when we are looking for news updats during a race weekend. Thanks.

I would support that. Searching through Forix is not always user friendly. Until I have read this forum I thought Team managers' quotes disappeared completely... Thanks!

I echo previous post... how about a link to the Forix quotes on the F1 page... you have them buried in an article... put them where we can find them.I sometimes wonder if it is worth the cost of my membership...it seems more and more this website goes down hill instead of forward!

Good idea guys - there is now a link to the quotes from the box on the left hand side of the F1 page.

 

There is also a link from the Grand Prix box on the bottom right of the main homepage.

Sorry to bother again, only additional quick question:

For this direct link http://forix.com/gp....r=20140002&c=41 where within Forix I will find corresponding menu items for this page, please? And same for the teams?

No matter what, I haven't figured out how to get to this page using Forix menu. I can't see it anywhere. Thanks for help.

We haven't yet set up a page for team quotes (partly because they don't quite follow the same format every round like the driver quotes do). Until this changes, the only place for team quotes will be the team pages for each race, which you can access from the Team dropdown on the left hand side of each event's page (such as this one).

From within Forix, the links point to the driver or team pages. The full page of driver quotes that you mention there is linked to from the Autosport pages as it was mostly readers who were used to seeing quotes linked to on the main site who were asking for that feature. While there isn't a menu dropdown for that within Forix, you can navigate through the different Grands Prix by using the left and right arrows on the top right of that page.

Hi my friends at Autosport,

 

I think I understood the way how you mean to publish the drivers' and teams' quotes. But I have to confess, that I am not going to click one-by-one on driver's and team's Forix page to learn, what they had to say about the weekend  :cry: Way too complicated. So I go to F1.com instead. I hope you don't feel too insulted. But you effectively buried this specific part of your services.  :( On the other hand, I am sure it is well considered on your side, so I need to find my own specific way...

I no longer use autosport for this either. I wish they would stop trying to enhance our experience by making it more difficult to find things.

Also, in the 'GP box' on the website, the 'driver quotes' link just directs to www.autosport.com.
