TO STAY FOURTH
Car 10, MARK WEBBER, (Finish Position 6th, Start Position: 6th)
"My start wasn't great, but my first stint wasn't too bad in terms of pace. I was tryingto keep up with Fernando (Alonso) as I knew he was short and I put in some lapsthat were right on the edge before the first stop. On my out lap I knew I was stillunder pressure from others who were going a bit longer and jumped the kerbs a bithard when I was on fresh tyres with heavy fuel. I had a big moment, although Imanaged to save it. I then settled in behind Fernando again, but his strategy didn'twork out as well, which was good for us. It's good for the team to get some morepoints today. It was a tough week in the build up to this race, in terms of effort fromthe factory and the boys at the track, and three points is not to be sniffed at. Toyotahad a strong race today, but we'll have more in the future."
Car 9, DAVID COULTHARD, (Finish Position 9th, Start Position: 7th)
"I'm disappointed that from a good grid position I lost three places at the start, two offthe line and one when Kovalainen passed me round the outside into Turn five. Ifound the balance on the prime tyres wasn't as good as expected in the coolerconditions and the option was performing better than we thought. That was differentfrom what we found the other day in practice, but some races go for you and somedon't."
CHRISTIAN HORNER: "Unfortunately both drivers got poor starts, which gave awayquite a lot on the first lap, but thereafter Mark's strategy worked well. He had goodpace throughout the race to finish a solid sixth. He had one moment in front ofFernando which cost him a bit of time, but a good solid points finish. David hadsimilar pace and it was a very good last stint for him. Unfortunately, he finished afrustrating ninth, but we retain fourth in the Constructors' and look forward to theBritish Grand Prix."
FABRICE LOM, Renault Principal Engineer, Track Support: "We have to behappy with a result like this as we got points, but unfortunately one of our guys wasout of the points and Toyota scored a lot, although congratulations to Jarno (Trulli),who had a fantastic race. So, a mixed result. We're still in front of Toyota, but they'reclosing the gap. We're happy that the engines finished the race; we'd been a bitworried, but they did it. Let's hope we find some more pace at the Silverstone testthis week to stay in front of Toyota."
