Europe Sunday quotes: HRT

Karun Chandhok - 18th: "It was a reasonable race for me. The pace early on was reasonably good but then I started to struggle with the option tyres. We decided to pit under the safety car and switch to primes which was a good decision as I was able to then settle into a rhythm and pull away from Bruno. At the end though, having done 47 laps on one set of tyres I didnīt quite have enough pace to fight against Timo and he managed to muscle past on the final lap. All in all, I am quite pleased with the job I did today and itīs good for the team to get two cars to the finish in front of their home supporters".

Bruno Senna - 20th: "It was a frustrating race today. Unfortunately, there was the incident with Timo Glock when my front wing was damaged. This happened during the blue flag we both got for a lapping car. But it is good to finish the race again after not having finished the last three."

Dr Colin Kolles, Team Principal: "We started on different strategies into the race. Bruno started on prime tyres and Karun was on options. We decided to do Karun's pit stop during the safety car period and to win some positions thereby, as the Virgins were on a different strategy. Unfortunately, there were two incidents where both drivers' front wings were damaged."
