Comments from the Red Bull team after the Hungarian Grand Prix

David Coulthard: 5th

"My car's looking pretty sorry for itself to be honest. I came together with Kubica in the first corner and lost the side of my end plate, and then later with (Michael) Schumacher when he spun, which broke the side of the car a little bit too."

"Rubens (Barrichello) banged wheels with me at the chicane and then Trulli came down the inside of me and nearly hit me. So, with everything we had going on, I realise I was pretty lucky to finish and especially to get some points! It's good to extend our position over Williams."

"I'd like to say big congratulations to Jenson Button too. I've always been in the camp of those who believed that he undoubtedly had the ability to win, he just needed the right circumstance. Today gave him that circumstance and it was long overdue. Hearty congratulations to Jenson, it's his day today."

Christian Klien: DNF

"I had to start from the pit lane as I had a problem with my car, so I had to push really, really hard in the race. It was very difficult out there, as you couldn't see much due to all the water on the straight. I overtook a few cars, but then I was a little a bit too quick on one corner and that was it, I was already in the gravel."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"Fifth position is a good team result. David drove an excellent first lap, managed to keep his head down and move up solidly through the order from twelfth to fifth. The strategy worked well for us today. We demonstrated good team work, which bought us a good result."

"Christian was unlucky and wasn't able to start the race from his grid position due to a fuel leak. He started from the pits in the spare car and was making progress, but unfortunately he suffered a spin, which ended his race."
