Montoya Critical of Trulli

Juan Pablo Montoya's chances of a podium finish on his return to Formula One at the Spanish Grand Prix may have been dashed by a fuel rig problem, but he was left more angry by the driving tactics of Jarno Trulli

The Colombian had made a better getaway than his Toyota rival off the start but, as he tried to overtake on the left, Trulli edged him off the track,­ forcing Montoya to either back off or risk having a start-line accident.

Speaking to ITV after the race, Montoya admitted he was annoyed at Trulli's actions.

"It's very disappointing," he said. "I had a great start and I thought it was very unfair what Jarno did ­ just putting me straight on the grass. It's pretty sad to see that.

"You know, you can stay there and make a massive shunt taking half the grid off. But I thought the sensible thing was to try to move over, and he just kept pushing me into the grass until he managed it.

"So I was a bit pissed off about that."

Montoya recovered from the early run-in with Trulli, and a spin, to get into contention for a podium finish before a fuel rig failure meant he had to make an extra stop.
"It was pretty sad, you know, coming into the pits and there is no fuel."
