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

Tonio Liuzzi:

"It was reasonable day and in the morning we just did a couple of laps to check everything was okay. In the second session, we worked more towards the race, running heavier fuel loads. Generally it was a positive session, apart from having a lot of graining on the tyres. But we gathered a lot of good data for us to work on tonight."

Neel Jani:

"This morning I got through my entire programme and it went well. In the afternoon we did a long run and I think we have found the right tyre in terms of consistency, but I was struggling to get a good lap time in the first two laps. But after that, the tyres were really good."

Scott Speed:

"I don't think our car is too bad, although our pace did not seem great today. I had a big difficulty in warming up the tyres and also I had a big lock up, which caught me off guard and flat spotted a tyre, so I had to deal with a lot of vibration."

"It's hard to say after just a handful of laps how this track will suit our car and we will know more after qualifying. Even without many laps we have a pretty decent understanding of our car and at least the tyre choice looks fairly straightforward and we still have an hour tomorrow to work on that."
