Coments from the Toro Rosso drivers after qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi:

"It's fantastic because Monaco is such a special race and we came here really motivated. At the beginning of the session I struggled a bit but then it got better in the second. This is a great starting point for tomorrow and I'm really happy."

"It was hard out there: you have to fight to avoid not only the traffic but also the walls. It's twice as hard as anywhere else. I enjoyed this afternoon. I love Monaco because you need balls to go within millimetres of the wall and that's what I love."

Scott Speed:

"Montagny blocked me for my first two laps on new tyres and after that, my tyres were past their best and I was well off the pace with no chance of improving my time. So coming in before that part of the session was over did not make any difference, because Montagny was still in front of me."

"It's a shame because my pace was better than Tonio's at one point and he ended up thirteenth. I've had horrible luck in qualifying this season, just the worst. But well done to Tonio who did a great job today."

Tonio Luzzi
Best lap: 1:14.969
Position: 13th

Scott Speed
Best lap: 1:16.236
Position: 19th
