A disappointing result for the OrangeArrows team in Brazil today. Enrique Bernoldi retired from the race on lap 15 with hydraulic problems and Jos Verstappen exited the race on lap 38 after running into the back of Juan Montoya's Williams.

Jos Verstappen
"I saw that I was given a blue flag and I saw Montoya coming so I went to the left to let him past. Once he came past I moved back over onto the racing line and he then braked very early. I'm very sorry for him (Montoya) because I heard he was leading the race, but I couldn't avoid him, I hit him and that was it."

Enrique Bernoldi
"The lap before I came in I saw that my hydraulic temperatures were going up. The team called me in and on my in-lap I couldn't select any gears. It's a shame not to finish again but until this point I have had a positive weekend and I'm happy to be making progress."

Mike Coughlan
"Not a lot to say really. Enrique stopped with a hydraulic problem. Jos was going well on a one-stop strategy and we were ready for him when the rain began but it wasn't to be. We'll move on to Magny Cours now to continue developing the car and hope for a better race at Imola."

Guy Audoux, Asiatech
"All the hard work invested by the team did not receive the reward it deserved this weekend but thanks to a trouble-free weekend engine-wise Asiatech has gained a lot of useful information. This will provide precious help for future development as Europe beckons."
