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

Scott Speed:

"Qualifying did not go too well, because we were unable to get the most out of the tyres on our first flying lap. All the same, I was very happy with my final lap which was very good from a driving point of view."

"So we did both our fastest laps on the second timed lap of each run, which is never a good sign on new tyres. I was surprised, because tyre degradation here is usually very high. Our car is definitely better balanced in race trim, so I hope that pays off big time tomorrow. I reckon we can have a good race pace tomorrow.

Tonio Liuzzi:

"That first part of qualifying was very close. I am disappointed because I got caught up in traffic on my second set of tyres. Actually I was slowed down by David! A shame, as I could have easily made it through to the second part of the session, but today it didn't work out. Traffic in qualifying is always bad and it's just part of the game."

Scott Speed
Best lap: 1:17.063
Position: 15th

Tonio Liuzzi
Best lap: 1:17.164
Position: 17th
