Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after Friday practices for the French Grand Prix

Neel Jani:

"This morning we found some good solutions working on the set-up and we used them this afternoon when, as usual, I worked on doing long runs. We found a good race pace and also the tyre comparison went well, so maybe we are not looking too bad for the rest of the weekend, although we will have to wait and see how much the others can take out of their package. I am very pleased with today."

Tonio Liuzzi:

"We concentrated mainly on set-up work for tomorrow and these two sessions today were very tricky, with hardly any grip which is why quite a few people went off. It is low grip everywhere at the moment and if it stays like that and we can't get much more rubber down, it will be a tough race."

"The car itself is not bad and I could do some quick times although I had traffic on my last run. We can be positive about this weekend, but I am not positive about getting more grip out of the track. That is the same for everyone, so we will just have to work around it by changing the set-up."

Scott Speed:

"The car is not too bad here and I think we can be quite competitive. In terms of set-up and tyres it's not looking too bad either. The accident was my mistake. Earlier I had been using the right hand kerb at Turn 7 and was getting away with it. Then I tried to use it a little bit more and it turned around and bit me! It launched the rear in the air and I immediately lost control of the car."
