Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after qualifying for the Australian Grand Prix

Scott Speed:

"The car was no better than yesterday, because we are not going to be able to improve this car until we get some testing behind us. We are throwing darts in the dark and on top of that my qualifying was completely screwed by traffic, when as I came past the pits there were three cars coming out the pits in front of me going into Turn 1."

"Also on my last lap there was some dirt on the track and I had a moment at Turn 14. Tomorrow, if I can keep the car within the white lines I will be happy."

Tonio Liuzzi:

"When I came into the pits there was a problem with my fuel rig and I ended up going out for my second run with no fuel. But this was just one of a host of problems we seem to have at the moment, because unfortunately we had very little testing time before this season."

"We might have done a bit better without that, as we has to settle for my time in the first run. But I don't think we would have made it into the second session. We will have to work very hard to try and have a better day tomorrow for the race."

Scott Speed
