Tonio Liuzzi claims Scuderia Toro Rosso quickly need to get to the bottom of their reliability problems after he was forced to retire from the British Grand Prix with another mechanical failure.

Having struggled with various problems that have seen him finish just one of the last seven grands prix, the gearbox woes that blighted Liuzzi's qualifying effort came back to haunt him with just four laps of the race remaining.

Together with a problem that saw an object get lodged between his back and the seat, as well as chronic understeer, Liuzzi admits the race proved to be a particularly dismal one for him

"Yet another retirement through a mechanical failure with the gearbox. We need to work on reliability as this is our main problem at the moment. I had problems from about lap 15 onwards as something got stuck between my back and my seat, so it was really uncomfortable to drive, especially as this is a high speed circuit so it was very painful. That meant I was unable to push as hard as I wanted because of the pain. I also had a lot of understeer right from the start."
