The OrangeArrows team had a tough time at today's Hungarian Grand Prix. Jos Verstappen drove hard throughout the race and duly brought his car home in 12th position. Team-mate Enrique Bernoldi spun off during the first third of the race after locking up his rear brakes.

The team will now return to England for a two-day test at Silverstone. The test begins on Tuesday and both race drivers will be running throughout the test.

Jos Verstappen
"That was a lot of work for nothing today as again it's a finish but no points. My start was good but it was tough to overtake. As soon as you go off the racing line you go through all the dust and then have to spend time cleaning up your tyres. I'm very happy that Michael (Schumacher) has won his fourth World Championship but maybe it is time for me to ask him to slow down a little!"

Enrique Bernoldi
"I spun off - it's as simple as that. The track was very slippery and I locked up my rear brakes while I was pushing to catch (Fernando) Alonso. It's rather a fitting end to what has been a very tough weekend for us. I'd like to say congratulations to Michael for another Championship."

Graham Taylor, Chief Race Engineer, OrangeArrows
"Jos drove very hard today for no reward. Yes, the car ran reliably, but we need to work very very hard on performance. It was unfortunate for Enrique that he locked up and spun off during the opening stages of the race. We thought this would be a tough race for us but not this tough."

Tom Walkinshaw
"Congratulations to Michael, Ferrari and Bridgestone for another well-deserved Championship."
