Vergne not angry with Schumacher

"I am really happy with ninth place and I enjoyed having a fight with Mark towards the end, even if I could not hold off Massa just before that, he added. "In the closing stages, I didn't look in the mirrors too much, but I just focussed on maintaining my lap times all the way to the flag."

"This race continues a positive trend for us that began in Monza a fortnight ago," said Toro Rosso team principal Franz Tost. "We managed to bring home points with Daniel finishing ninth, but it could have been better as Jean-Eric also looked set for a top ten place until the unfortunate collision with Schumacher.

"Both drivers did well and Daniel had a great fight with his fellow countryman Mark Webber in the closing stages, while Jean-Eric also performed very strongly on his first visit to this very demanding circuit," he continued. "The disappointment of Jev's retirement is balanced by the fact that we have looked more competitive at a track that we did not expect would suit our current package.

"This means we are looking forward to the Japan-Korea trip with renewed optimism," he added.

"He even deliberately took drivers out for his own selfish gain" Ok fair game, but I am going to assume you are one of these who hate Schumacher for it but would advocate the one Senna did on Prost at Japan, consequently winning the title so I suppose we could say that was for his 'own selfish gain'.
