We did not expect to do much at this track and we were not wrong...

Tonio Liuzzi: 13th

"I had quite a good race, it felt like a long one. It was a shame that in the early stages I could not keep up with the group ahead of me, because I had too much understeer. It was the right choice to change our strategy during the race."

"Apart from the understeer the car went well and it was a good performance given that we had always known Silverstone would be a tough track for us, as the V10 was never going to be ideal round here. So, to sum it up - a good result."

Scott Speed: Retired

"I had a really awesome start and got past Tonio and Christian. I tried to get by Ralf as well in the left hander at Becketts, as he seemed not to have got a good start and I had a lot of grip. I came up alongside him in the right hand part and then we just got tangled up together as I went round the outside of him. I don't think he was expecting me to be there. It was just a racing incident, but unfortunately it was the end of our day, as I had bent a track-rod."

Gerhard Berger:

"Tonio drove a good race. At the risk of repeating myself, this is about the best we can expect at the moment. It took too long to fix Scott's car so it seemed pointless to send him out again."

"Of course there are some areas where we can improve, but we had a good pit-stop and it was the right decision to switch Tonio from a two to a one stop strategy. It worked reasonably well, as we got ahead of Klien."
