Car 10, MARK WEBBER, (Finish Position 9th, Start Position: 7th)"The first few laps were quite tricky due to the conditions, but our start was okay. Iwas running a bit short and when doing that it helps to have a clear track, but I didn't.I  lost  some  time  behind  Bourdais,  who  was  a  bit  heavier,  but  we  were  still  in  areasonable position. Then I got hit by Heikki (Kovalainen) and lost some time. It hurtour  strategy,  which  was  quite  aggressive.  The  car  felt  best  in  the  last  stint  on  theprime tyres. It's a shame we didn't get any points today, the guys had put a lot  ofeffort in."

Car 9, DAVID COULTHARD, (Finish Position 11th, Start Position: 14th)"I  got  held  up  a  lot  behind  the  Hondas  at  the  start  and  it  was  hard  to  make  uppositions  from  there.  We  have  poor  drivability.  The  changeable  conditions  madethings interesting at the end, we could probably have changed to intermediate tyresone lap earlier."

CHRISTIAN HORNER: "A busy afternoon for the drivers and the pit crew. Mark wasunlucky in the first stint of the race when he got hit following a very optimistic moveby Kovalainen, which cost him a lot of time and track position. In the final laps wegambled to split the cars and left Mark on dry tyres and put David on intermediates.David had a poor start and we had elected to run a one stop strategy, anticipatingvariable  conditions  which  arrived  with  three  laps  to  go.  Today's  result  doesn'trepresent the hard work that the team is putting in at the moment, but I'm sure ourluck will change soon."

FABRICE LOM, Renault, Principal Engineer, Track Support: "A very difficult racewith mixed conditions, especially at the end. It was a hard race for the engine, whichwas very stressed on this track. We will cross our fingers as we still have Monza todo, which is fifty per cent of the job."
