Vijay Mallya: “Obviously today’s race was overshadowed by Felipe’s accident yesterday and our thoughts are with him and his family. We wish him all the best for a speedy recovery. For us personally, the weekend has been one of mixed fortunes. Qualifying was not as we would have hoped, but Giancarlo had a strong outing with some very fast times in the mid point of the race and we again raced in the midfield. We’re now very much looking forward to Valencia where the new upgrades should give us yet another advance on the field.”

Giancarlo Fisichella: “The race was quite tough for us. The grid position wasn’t great and in the beginning we struggled a little bit with the grip. On the second and third stints though the car balance was actually pretty good and I was quicker than Barrichello and Kubica so I could push quite hard. Unfortunately here you just can’t find a way past so we had to settle for 14th. Now we can really start to look forward to the next Grand Prix in Valencia.”

Adrian Sutil: “We had a problem with the water temperature so after one lap it had climbed to the maximum so the engine was running very hot. We had our first suspicions on the way to the grid and after a few corners it was clear that there was no way we could do the race. I had to retire to save the engine. It’s been a difficult weekend overall but I’m looking forward to Valencia now where we have a big upgrade package coming through.”
