Brazilian GP race quotes: Scuderia Toro Rosso

Scuderia Toro Rosso reflects on the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos, the penultimate round in the 2009 FIA F1 World Championship.
Sebastien Buemi - 7th:

"It was a very difficult race for me, as I had to push hard every lap, but in the end to come away with points for the first time since China is a good result, for me and for the team, who did a good job today. My start was difficult, as I was sandwiched between Kubica and Rosberg at the first corner, so they got past me, which was a shame. However, we did not have a particularly strong race pace, so we must look at the data to try and understand why. I have mixed feelings because after our performance on Friday I had hoped to finish in the top five, so although the points are nice, it's not as good as I expected. Now we can look forward to Abu Dhabi where we must try and build on this result and keep moving forward."

Jaime Alguersuari - 14th:

"I am happy to have finished the race and I feel I am still making progress and learning every time I go out on track. My start was quite good and I managed to get past Kobayashi. But I was on the wrong side for the start and other cars began going past me as I was slow in a straight line. After that, I was stuck in traffic and from then on my race was always going to be tough. When I had a clear track I could be quicker and overall, I feel I have improved again this weekend."

Laurent Mekies - chief Engineer (Scuderia Toro Rosso):

"It's good to be back in the points with Sebastien, however we were hoping for a bit more today and now we have to work out why we were unable to reproduce our Friday pace today. As for Jaime, he had a very difficult first part of the race, fighting with a lot of cars and dealing with traffic. He got caught behind a couple of one-stoppers, but on the Option tyre towards the end, his lap times were fairly competitive."
