Comments from the Toro Rosso team after the Canadian Grand Prix

Scott Speed: 10th

"Another top ten for the resume! No, seriously, it was a very intense race. It was very treacherous out there, with all the loose rubber and asphalt on the track. Towards the end of the race, the hairpin was almost undriveable, really really bad. On my in-lap for the first pit stop, I had a problem with my left rear tyre that cost me some time on the way in."

"We did not have a fast car today, or at least not as fast as we expected after Saturday morning, but we muscled our way up the order. But in the end a tenth place is good for us. I think our performance today means I can be a little bit more optimistic about my home race next weekend."

Tonio Liuzzi: 13th

"It was a shame the way things went. I think I was in about P10 after a few laps and everything seemed to be going fine and we were competitive. Then I came up behind Webber, who was very slow and struggling. As I tried to overtake him, he closed the door on me and as I came out of his slipstream on the straight, he moved off his line twice. His rear tyres touched my front wing and I had to come in to the pits. It was a shit result as it had looked better at the start."

Franz Tost, Team principal:

"Unfortunately, we lost out on the possibility of a good result with Tonio, who was hit by Webber, moving him to the back after an extra pit stop. After that, there was no chance of us getting any points. Scott drove a good race, but in the end it was not enough to get ahead of Coulthard or Button."

"For us, tenth place is nevertheless a good result. We are still aiming for our first point. The Indy circuit will not really do us any favours, but you never know, it could work out quite well."
