British GP race reactions: Williams


Nico Rosberg – 5th:
“I am very pleased for the whole team, and for myself, that we had another good race. We still didn't get the result that we are capable of today, but Barrichello was slow in the middle stint and I was stuck behind him and that cost me the place to Massa. If that hadn't happened, we would have had a solid fourth place. I have to say a big well done to the team because everyone is doing a really great job and we are moving ahead in terms of development. We are consistent on every track so I'm looking forward to the races to come.”

Kazuki Nakajima – 11th:
“That result was not ideal for me. There weren't any particular reasons for it. I was pleased with my start and I thought it was going to be a good race for me, but I was held up by the car in front before my first stop and then it was difficult to keep up with the cars ahead of me for the rest of the race.”

Sam Michael - Technical director:
“It was great for the team to pick up more points today with Nico's fifth place and it shows we're still heading in the right direction with development. Nico drove well, it was just a shame he was caught up in traffic for the majority of the race as I think he could have done more. He showed that he was quick by setting the third fastest laptime in the race, only behind the two Red Bulls. With his strategy, it was always going to be difficult for Kazuki to score points, but he is definitely improving, and he really helped the team with set-up direction this weekend.”

I thought Naka was having a great time of things until the pit-stop...after it he looked as though he was out of his depth and ended up giving up...the excuses are only being trotted out because of the Toyota link...good drivers make the most of any strategy - didnt hear Massa whinge about his!!! Nico again should he is a quality racer and with a few more improvements he could regularly challenge for good points finishes...
