Comments from the Red Bull team after the Turkish Grand Prix

David Coulthard: DNF

"Not the result we wanted today. The balance of the car was okay and improved after we adjusted the front wing and tyre pressures during the first pit stop. We were competitive in sections of the race compared to the cars around us and towards the end of the race I was catching Webber. I thought I could overtake him, but I had to retire with a gearbox problem."

Christian Klien: 11th

"That was one of the toughest races this season. It was so hot and Turn eight is such a long corner, it's very tough on the neck, but I kept pushing until the end. The car was good in the first stint and had good balance, but I suffered with understeer in the second part. In the last section, the car was a little better again, but we were not really racing here today. It's frustrating to start tenth and finish eleventh."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"A disappointing result. From a good position, Christian unfortunately slipped back. He had some damage to his car's front left bargeboard, which caused some understeer. David retired with a gearbox failure after showing reasonable pace - it's frustrating."
