Japan GP: Race notes - Red Bull

NEWS STORY
08/10/2006

David Coulthard: I had to retire my car when it lost fourth gear. We were racing the Spyker team for much of the race and it was clear we were quicker in some areas, but slower in others. After Tonio (Liuzzi) spun, I got stuck behind Scot Speed's car who was running a little slower than me, that held me up a bit, but other than that I was just trying to run my race.

Robert Doornbos: It ended up being quite lonely on the race track this afternoon. I had a very poor start, I don't know why, I think maybe there was a problem with the clutch, which meant I couldn't defend my position as I pulled away. But, after that it was good to overtake the guys again and get the positions back. I was behind Tonio (Liuzzi) and David (Coulthard) for quite a long while. Tonio lost a little time, I don't know why, and David unfortunately stopped so I was out on my own in thirteenth towards the end of the race.

Christian Horner: Starting from where we did on the grid it was always going to be a tough race today, but both drivers showed reasonable pace. The strategy we adopted moved them forward, although shortening the strategy to benefit from new tyres bought them out in a bit of traffic, which wasn't ideal. The pace of our cars looked more respectable today than it did yesterday and, although it was disappointing to suffer a gearbox failure on David's car, Robert drove a sensible race.
