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

Tonio Liuzzi:

"This was another good qualifying for me. Everything has been moving in the right direction since we started practice on Friday. We should have a good pace for the race as the car feels consistent and quite quick."

"I think that in the second part of qualifying I might have had a chance of going through to the final session, but there was a Red Bull car coming out of the pits as I came round, so we got a bit stuck in traffic and I didn't get the maximum out of the car."

"As for the race, I think I have a chance of fighting with the three or four cars ahead of me on the grid. We usually have a good race pace so it could be a good afternoon."

Scott Speed:

"For some reason, we picked up a lot more oversteer in this session than in the others. The car felt completely different and it was sliding a lot. The track temperature was a lot higher, so we adjusted the tyre pressures accordingly and maybe that's where we didn't get it quite right."

"My tyres were better on the second flying lap, but on my second run I had to abort that lap as I got held up by Button. The track was definitely better at the end. We gambled on going out a little bit earlier. Tomorrow? Hopefully we can go back to getting the good balance we had before for the race. Anything can happen here, so let's wait and see."

Tonio Liuzzi
Best lap: 1:16.116
Position: 15th

Scott Speed
Best lap: 1:17.016
Position: 18th
