"I`m really disappointed today. Towards the end of the race my car began to feel really strange. I don`t know what it was, but it felt like a brake problem or a loose wheel, so I had to come in to have it checked. I really didn`t want to do that, but I didn`t feel I had any other course open to me. It was a real good race on a very interesting and challenging track. I was glad to be able to come so close on the American speedway and give a good show to the American spectators. Without that, I would have finished sixth."

Mika Salo
"It didn`t help that the warm-up this morning was damp so we couldn`t refine our race set-up. My car was difficult all day, and still hard to balance, and in the end it just got away from me in the first corner at the start of lap 19."

Willy Rampf
"A disappointing race for us, especially as our strategy with Pedro was perfect. We stayed out on wets for the first 15 laps, when he was running third, then did a long stint on dry tyres. Sixth place was a genuine probability until his unexpected stop. We checked the car and checked the tyres, and up to now, we do not know exactly what went wrong."
