Italian GP qualifying reactions: Scuderia Toro Rosso

Sebastien Buemi – 19th:

"I did the best I could, but the session did not go well for me. I was held up by Hamilton, who did not know I was there. Another lap for me might have made a bit of a difference, but not much. As for Glock saying I held him up, I don't think I did, as I was just trying to rebuild a gap after being slowed by Hamilton. They say it might rain tomorrow, so now we need to work out the best strategy for whatever conditions we might encounter in the race."

Jaime Alguersuari – 20th:

"I was not expecting much from this session, after problems in the morning with my gearbox meant I only did ten laps in free practice. Because of that, I did not have the time to try much in terms of setting up the car. Therefore, we carried over some unknown factors into qualifying and I have to say, I am still getting used to driving the car in this low downforce configuration. I hope I can still have a good race tomorrow and to be honest, I hope it rains."

Giorgio Ascanelli – technical director (Scuderia Toro Rosso):

"Today, we ended up where we deserved to be."

'I was held up by Hamilton, who did not know I was there.' I'm hoping that this statement means that the team have not gone to the race stewards, what would they gain? Realistically, they were never going to get past Q3 and it'd just mean getting involved with something that's not really necessary to get involved with. Also that last sentance sums up everything for Toro Rosso, for pretty much the entire season... :)
