Comments from the Toro Rosso team after the San Marino Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi (Pos. 14):

"It was a so-so race for me. We ran at our pace in qualifying which meant we started a long way back on the grid, which made it difficult to go anywhere. We had a decent race pace but we couldn't pass anyone as it is so difficult at this track."

"I had a problem with the brakes from about lap 3 onwards so I couldn't push as I was locking up the front or the rear. The car handled well and without the brake thing I could have done much better."

Scott Speed (Pos. 15):

"I might have passed Heidfeld if I had not get so badly held up around the pit stops. I was unlucky in that I let Michael by a couple of corners before he pitted so I lost about five seconds there and then, when I came out of the pits I had a bunch of traffic."

"The car's pace was good, we were quicker than Heidfeld and quick enough to keep up with our "senior" Red Bull team! To add to my bad luck, my drinks bottle didn't work all race."

Gerhard Berger:

"We had a good race with strong lap times. Again we brought both cars home which is encouraging and we were stuck in amongst BMW and to be stuck behind a BMW is no bad sign for Toro Rosso. We could have gone quicker if we had been able to pass them."

"Looking at the lap times, if we qualified a bit better, I think we could run three or four places further forward. Overall, it was actually a reasonable result for us."
