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

Tonio Liuzzi:

"Everything is fine with the car, which is what we could expect as we tested here for three days last week. But to be honest, there is still some more work to do in tomorrow's free practice to be in the best possible shape for qualifying and the race. But I think we are on the right track."

Scott Speed:

"I think the car feels better today than it did last week when I was here testing for a day and a half. It feels generally more stable. That improvement comes mainly from the tyres. The balance of the car seems fine to me, it feels better than last week, but until I've had a good chance to look at all the data, I'm not sure where we stand."

Neel Jani:

"I struggled a little bit more with grip than at last week's test, but generally things went well. In the afternoon, I did the usual simulation runs in race trim: I think I had enough fuel on board to drive home to Switzerland and back! I did not have grip on my first two timed laps, but the other two drivers did not have this, so maybe it was something in the settings on my car. But the long run went well."
