Bruni Rues Bad Luck

Q: Just really tough luck for you today, once again

Gianmaria Bruni: Yeah - the last month or month and a half we've had really tough luck - I hope that will change. Like today - I didn't jump the start, but I just put the gear on and the car just moved about five centimetres when the first light came on, and I got a jump start penalty already. But I even lost positions, so I don't think it was a jump start. It could have been a podium today - second, because Piccione had the problem - but anyway, it's over now.

Q: The last couple of races have been really bad luck for you.

Bruni: Yeah, from the Nurburgring, where in both races I was leading! I don't know - I don't really have the words for it really - but I'm sure we will be back. We just have to keep fighting, try to do the best, put it all together and then hope that in the next race it will come.

Q: The team has struggled a little with pace lately, but yesterday you said that you thought you'd found a solution. It looked as though it was getting there today.

Bruni: Yeah - that was the way to go, but we didn't want to make too big a change in case it was too much in the opposite way, so we did a small change and that was the way to go, because we found eight or nine tenths over the times from yesterday! So it's big, but we have even more.

Q: And at least it gives you hope for the next races.

Bruni: Yeah - we had the fastest car in Magny Cours, and we were only half a second off the pace here from the quickest and only two tenths off from the next quickest, so we have to just work a little bit harder to put everything together.

Q: And for Hockenheim?

Bruni: Just to finish in the top three - I'm going to try to, anyway.
