China GP: Qualifying notes - Toro Rosso

NEWS STORY
06/10/2007

Tonio Liuzzi: Overall a good qualifying and I think the whole team can be proud of this result achieved in dry conditions. Yesterday went well and this morning, we worked hard on getting the best set-up possible, always thinking that we might have a wet race tomorrow. In Q1, I had a bit of traffic so I could not get the best out of the car, but we still made it safely to Q2. Maybe I could have done a little bit better if I had made my run later as I had some understeer, but to be eleventh, so close to Q3 means we have done a good job.

Sebastian Vettel: This performance was better than we expected. It is a very good result for the whole team. There was not much between us: in Q1 I was slightly ahead of Tonio and in Q2, he was quicker. The key thing is that we managed to lap consistently. I only missed out on Q3 by a little margin, so this is clearly an improvement over yesterday and shows we are quite competitive in qualifying specific. Let's see what we can do in the race. I am looking forward to it whatever the conditions.

Giorgio Ascanelli: Our best qualifying of the year in the dry. Already in Japan we saw that our car has made a step forward and here it was better still. Although I am happy with this performance there is still a very slight feeling of regret, as I think we could have got at least one car into the top ten, but we have to be happy with this and, if we get a wet race, it's the same for everybody.
