Canada GP: Race notes - Toro Rosso


Tonio Liuzzi: It was not the way I had hoped for this race to end. After Kubica's accident I got some debris caught under the car and thought I was going to have to retire. It was like a slalom trying to avoid the debris. But I continued and then everything seemed to be fine. Unfortunately, at the final chicane I went over the kerb, which put me in the wall and that was the end of my race.

Scott Speed: It is a disappointing day for us. It was crazy out there. I have to say sorry to the team because I made a bit of a mistake. Alex was quicker than me down the straightaway, but he made a mistake at the hairpin and then another at the corner before I tried to pass and when I did try, there just was not enough room for two cars.

Franz Tost: I must congratulate the team on doing an excellent job in terms of strategy, but it did not pay off today. They reacted under very complex situations in a perfect way, especially when carrying out the two tyre stops which meant we not only got our stint on the less good tyre out of the way, but we were also able to check the car in terms of safety as far as debris was concerned. They refuelled at the right time too and that put us back in the race.
