HISTORY
1ST POINT FOR TEAM
1ST POINT FOR SCOTT

Scott Speed (Pos. 8):

"To come from wherever we were on the grid - I can't even remember where we were, but I know it was a big number - it is incredible to come away from here with a point. We always said our goal was to grab some points this year and to get the first one so early is incredible."

"It's one step closer to my goal. It was really exciting and what a feeling to come round on the last lap and to see the whole team up on the wall. It was one of the greatest moments I've ever had in my life."

Tonio Liuzzi (retired):

"What happened was a real shame as we were competitive and had a really good pace. I am not very happy as I think Jacques (Villeneuve) might have put me in the wall. I am happy for Scott and the team that he picked up a point. Now I am looking forward to Imola where if the car is as competitive as here we can have a good race."

Gerhard Berger (Team Owner):

"Lucky and unlucky on the same day as with Tonio we were in a very good position today and could have finished higher. I am very happy with the result and the point. We had a race speed that was good enough to fight with Michael Schumacher at a certain stage and the others too."

"I think the whole team performed well and is steadily getting better. Now it is important that our speed of development matches that of the other teams."
