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

Tonio Liuzzi:

"We could not really expect more than this today, as we were pretty much at our limit. But the car performed well and I think we have a good set-up for tomorrow's race. With a few cars changing engines, we can move up a few places."

"The red flag worked against me in the first part as it meant I didn't use my second set of tyres. But it did not matter, as everything starts from zero again as long as you make it through to the second part.

Scott Speed:

"That was really frustrating. In Imola we were unlucky with traffic and exactly the same thing happened today in qualifying. I think our pace was good but, once again we did not get the chance to show it."

"Hopefully, some time soon, I'll get a clean qualifying lap and someone else will get blocked, but this time, I had to pass Sato on my quick lap and then I got held up by a Midland in the last chicane, as he came into the pits. The red flag didn't really affect me. That's what this qualifying format is about this year, so hopefully, we'll get lucky one time."

Tonio Liuzzi
Best lap 1:31.728
