Jaime Alguersuari - (STR6-01) - Pos. 12th


“That race was not bad and I feel we did a good job, given where we started on the grid. However, our pace was not as good as at Valencia or Silverstone and I was struggling a bit under braking. On the plus side, our strategy was good and the team worked well at the pit stops. At least we finished ahead of one of the Force India cars, so now all we can do is look forward to starting work again in a few days in Budapest, where I hope we can return to scoring points.”

Sebastien Buemi - (STR6-04) - Pos. 15th


“Unfortunately, I had rain settings and the rain never came, so it was not the best set-up for the race.

I had quite a good start, passing several cars. Unfortunately after that, Heidfeld drove into me at the chicane and I got a puncture on my right rear. So I had to pit and change tyres, which compromised our strategy even more and with no rain, that was really it. It has been a disappointing weekend in which we cannot be satisfied with our performance, therefore all we can do is look ahead to the Hungarian Grand Prix and at least we don’t have long to wait for that.”

Franz Tost


“The Nurburgring does not seem to be a Toro Rosso track. Yesterday, we had a problem with Sebastien, when his post-qualifying fuel sample did not match the one supplied to the FIA, as it got contaminated when we changed the fuel pressure system after it caused problems on Friday.

This meant he had to start from the back of the grid. However, he made a good start, moving up six places on the opening lap to be eighteenth. Then he had an incident with Heidfeld, which punctured his right rear tyre, so he had to pit, which forced us to change his strategy. From then on, he was always running around position 15 where he eventually finished the race. Adding to his difficulties, his car had been set up yesterday in anticipation of a wet race, but unfortunately for him it stayed dry. Jaime drove a good race, with a reasonable start, making up two places in the opening moments to lie fourteenth. He defended well, producing good lap times, even on the Prime tyre, moving up to twelfth at the flag, which was the best we could hope for.”
