Comments from the Toro Rosso team after the German Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi: 10th

"That was a cool race! On the first lap I was on fire! For the team, to finish ten and twelve from the back of the grid is a good result. It was fun out there, fighting with Jarno, Ralf and David. It was difficult to keep them behind because they were quicker. A shame that in the end I was not quick enough to keep the two Toyotas behind me. It would have been a great opportunity for points, but we just did not have the power."

Scott Speed: 12th

"The mechanics did an awesome job to get my car rebuilt after my qualifying crash. A big thanks to all the team. We drastically screwed up the car set-up for the start, having way too much front wing and just keeping the car on track was a challenge. We fixed that in the stop and then in the middle stint it was still a bit too much and by the end it was getting better."

"At the very beginning, I was catching David, Trulli and Tonio, but it soon went into big oversteer and that was it. I also had a problem with my brake balance in the early stages which also hurt my first and second stints, but once we fixed that I was able to get past Albers again."

Franz Tost, Team principal:

"Tenth and twelfth is what we could expect if you look at the list of better cars that finished ahead of us. Tonio did a really good job today. The whole team did an exceptional job to ensure that both cars got to the finish, considering how much work they had to do in such a short space of time to get Scott's car rebuilt. They did a tremendous job, thank you to the team."
