Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after qualifying for the San Marino Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi:

"We got off to a good start in this morning's practice and you could see we had the pace, with a tenth fastest time. So we were well prepared for qualifying and we expected to do well. This afternoon wasn't too bad, with me ending up eleventh in the first part. The car was responding very well and we had sorted out all the problems we came up against yesterday."

"But this afternoon, the others seemed to be flying, but we had already reached our maximum. It was a reasonable result but we still need to improve our qualifying pace. Tomorrow should be better as we seem to be stronger over a longer distance."

Scott Speed:

"I would have easily made it into the second part of the session but I got held up at the chicane by someone trying to get a good lap. It's unfortunate but that's the nature of qualifying this year and we have to deal with it. The team is improving every day, as the whole set up was new at the start of the year."

"Now we have three races under our belt and are back close to home the improvement in the way everyone is working is clear to see and there's still more to come. The race? I'm going to be aggressive. I've got nothing to lose."

Tonio Liuzzi
Position: 16th
Best lap 1:24.520

Scott Speed
Position: 18
Best lap: 1:25.437
