Comments from the Toro Rosso team after the Spanish Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi: Retired

"I retired with a hydraulic problem. We have been suffering with mechanical difficulties since Friday. I had another problem at the start and lost three places. Of course it's a shame as many other cars seemed to have problems and we could have made up even more places and I was already up to twelfth when I had to retire. Our race pace is definitely better than in qualifying and so that is something we must now try and improve on before Monaco, as well as working a lot on our reliability." Retired

Scott Speed: Retired

"The start and the opening couple of laps were fun, going from last on the grid to fourteenth. Then a couple of laps before I retired I noticed the tyre was going down so I was evidently losing some air pressure. Eventually the tyre just exploded as I was going down the straightaway. The car dragged on the track and there was no way to continue." Retired

Franz Tost:

"A very disappointing weekend. The start was okay from both drivers who did a good job in the early laps. Unfortunately we then suffered a technical failure on Tonio's car as he lost hydraulic fluid. We will now have to investigate to find out why. Scott had a problem with his left rear tyre. This will also need investigating. Now we are testing at Paul Ricard where we will have to work on our reliability issues."
