Olivier Panis Position: 11th
"Everybody did the best job they could with the car this weekend. 11th place was the best we could achieve which is very disappointing for the team. Now we have to find the problem and fix it so we can be quicker in Japan. Suzuka is one of my favourite tracks and it's an important race for us. I'm looking forward to racing there and I hope we can finish in the points."

Jacques Villeneuve
"Pedro de la Rosa was a little too optimistic with his overtaking manoeuvre and basically that put me out of the race. The left rear of the car could have been damaged and it would have been dangerous to continue. We have to see what we can do to improve our performance for Japan now."

Craig Pollock, Team Principal
"The race weekend started off badly and has unfortunately ended in much the same way. The race team did a fantastic job throughout to ensure the cars were reliable but there is very little satisfaction we can take from this Grand Prix. We have to look long and hard at what we can do to ensure we have a better race in Japan and to regain the advantage that we have lost to Jordan here today."
