Fantastic result for Red Bull




Car 9, DAVID COULTHARD, (Finish Position 3rd, Start Position: 13th)

"I'm  delighted  to  get  a  podium  for  the  team,  they've  had  a  lot  of  work  on  at  the previous races and back at base. You can expect some unusual results here, so we fuelled it long; but we expected the incidents would occur on track, not in the pit lane. But, nonetheless, the strategy worked well and all credit to the engineers, mechanics and everyone back at Red Bull for all their hard work. The start was pretty hairy with all the cars bunched up round Turn 1 and Turn 2, but my goal was to get to the finish and get points, so to get my 62nd podium is a great result. This adds to the points Mark   has  already   scored   this   season   and   helps   us   build   our   total   in   the Championship."

Car 10, MARK WEBBER, (Finish Position 12th, Start Position: 10th)

"I was on a two stop strategy and David was on a one-stop. We were out of position a bit with what happened in qualifying yesterday and it was difficult to recover from there. David's result brings a lot of points for the team though, which is very good.


"A  fantastic  result  for  the  team  today  and  particularly  for David after such a tough start to the year. He kept his head down, had very good pace and the strategy worked out perfectly for a comfortable third place. For Mark, following  his  accident  yesterday  the  pace  car  came  at  exactly  the  wrong  point  for him, and he was badly compromised by Barrichello and Nakajima in the first part of the race. He therefore couldn't exploit the pace advantage that he had and spent all afternoon in traffic. But, for the team, a podium result here in Montreal is an excellent result."

FABRICE LOM, Renault Principal Engineer, Track Support:

"I'm very, very happy for the team. The relationship we have with Red Bull Racing is so good and this is such a big reward for us. We are so happy for David. He's had a difficult beginning to the season, but now he has a podium result. I hope it isn't the last we get this year! You need a good engine on this track and we've proved that we have that, we're on the podium and the reliability and performance is there."
