Jacques Villeneuve:
"The car was quite easy to drive, but the first half of the race was very difficult because the set-up we chose for today did not maximise the straight-line speed. The strategy was beginning to pay off, however and but for the incident with my team mate, we would have scored some more points."

Ricardo Zonta:
"I'm very sorry for what happened with my team mate because we could both have scored points today. I had an opportunity to pass him at the first corner, but unfortunately my front wheel clipped his rear wheel, making him spin. The team told me I had a penalty and I lost concentration for a moment. I was on dry tyres in the wet conditions, I locked the brakes and skidded off the track."

Takefumi Hosaka:
"It was a very poor race, but the team coped very well with the unexpected stops. Takefumi Hosaka, Managing Director for Honda R&D. "The incident between Jacques and Ricardo was typical of a frustrating and disappointing weekend."


Craig Pollock:
"The teamwork during the race from all the mechanics and engineers was cohesive, good and professional, and the result today does not reflect the true potential of the team. Given the conditions and our race strategy, potentially we had fourth and fifth places in sight. We look forward to a better result in Budapest."
