Approach Scuderia Toro Rosso chiefs Franz Tost or Gerhard Berger in the paddock to ask if they have a few minutes to answer some questions, and you could forgive them if their shoulders dropped and a quick shake of the head indicated simply: "Sorry, not this time."
It's not that either man is unpleasant, unwilling to help or simply not interested in speaking to the media - in fact, far from it in each case. It's just that, for the past 18 months, all anyone seems to want to speak to Toro Rosso about is a controversy.
Controversy surrounding their decision to run with V10 Cosworths last season, their ultra-late call on their 2007 drivers, the 'commitment' question about Scott Speed, rumour of the team being up for sale and, of course, the customer car row and Spyker's protests this year. Toro Rosso have never been far from the centre of a big issue.
