When Tito happened I decided to follow it and see what happens with other drivers who came back. We have been opening hole and I felt pretty comfortable in that position, but when it's gone spending gum cost me keep up. Skidded much and could not keep track. This result comes in handy, especially after the last GP where we were not quite right. We have taken a step in the set-up and now we have to continue working to close the gap to the front. " LUIS N.C SALOM "I've gone over in turn one and I could not prevent the fall when I have given gas. I've been lucky that all those behind could dodge. I have damaged the little finger and this afternoon I operate in Dexeus clinic. Dr. Mir has behaved beautifully and I want to thank you. Folger also for having been able to dodge even though it cost him the race. "
