Italy: Toro Rosso Sunday quotes
Sunday 09th September 2012, 16:08 by TF1T Staff
Daniel Ricciardo, 12th: “It’s been so hard to score points this year and that means it is incredibly disappointing not to get one today. I was tenth until the last corner on the very last lap. At that point, I accelerated to exit Parabolica and nothing happened. At the moment, I don’t know the cause, but to miss out on a point by a few hundred metres is bitterly disappointing."
Jean-Eric Vergne, DNF: “I was taken from the accident to the Medical Centre, but apart from a bit of pain in my back and my head, I am fine. I don’t know why I crashed. All I can remember is that when I braked, I completely lost control of the back end of the car. I felt a big impact when the car landed after going up in the air. The kerb is high at that point and I count myself lucky that the car did not flip over."
Franz Tost: “A frustrating race for us at the end of a difficult weekend on home ground. As it was clear we did not have great pace this weekend, we decided to run Daniel on a one stop strategy in the hope of making up places on those changing tyres twice. It worked to a certain extent, as from 14th on the grid he was in tenth place for most of the final lap. Unfortunately, his car suffered a fuel pick-up problem, which we now need to investigate and this dropped him back to twelfth. As for Jean-Eric’s accident, we now need to look into its causes."
