Ing Renault Flavio Briatore, Managing Director: “We had other hopes for today, but we are happy nonetheless to see our two cars finish in the points. Fernando lost some positions at the start and we were not able to come back from that. Nelson had a remarkable race, very consistent and aggressive, and I am very pleased to see him score his first points today.”

Pat Symonds: “Both cars in the points, but we still feel a little bit disappointed. We took a risky strategy with Fernando, but had to alter it after the start and so it was far from ideal. It’s clear that we still need to find more speed in the car, but we are pleased with Nelson’s first points finish.”

Fernando Alonso: “I have to be disappointed today. I am sure we could have fought for the podium, but I lost too many positions at the start, and after that I was not able to find the pace I had shown yesterday. The car was fast in a straight
line, but I still couldn’t make any progress. I scored a point, but I’m determined to do better for the British Grand Prix.”

Nelson Piquet: “It’s the first time that everything has gone without any problems for me. The car and the team’s strategy worked well and I was able to score my first couple of points today. I am happy and I hope that we can continue like this for the rest of the season.”
