TOYOTA Team Principal Tadashi Yamashina has described the team’s Canadian Grand Prix as “wonderful” after both cars came home in the points for the first time this season. Timo Glock brought his car home a career- best fourth with Jarno Trulli sixth to deliver eight valuable points for Toyota and take the team to fifth place in the constructors’ championship. “This is a wonderful day for everyone involved with the team,” said Yamashina-san. “This is an important haul of points and we are so happy. We will now do our best to keep up this momentum at the next race.” For Glock, who made his F1 debut for Jordan at Montreal in 2004, the race was a positive conclusion to a tough few months since his racing return to the championship. “This is a fantastic day, and I’m delighted to take my first points of the year,” he said. “I made one mistake and caused Jarno to lose a place, which is a pity. But then I tried to stay in front of Massa and not make any mistakes. The result is great for the team, great for my crew, the mechanics and the engineers who have done a perfect job in the last few weeks. I dedicate the points to them.” THE Renault F1 Team was left contemplating what might have been in the Canadian Grand Prix after a potential podium placing for both of its cars came to naught. Following the early Safety Car, under which both Fernando Alonso and Nelson Piquet pitted, the duo emerged behind eventual winner Robert Kubica and were looking good for a good points haul at the very least. But a spin for Piquet, brought about by an eventually terminal brake problem, did for the young Brazilians hopes of scoring. “It’s a disappointing end to my weekend,” he said, “but I still take some positives from the race as the car was good today and our strategy looked really promising. It’s a shame as we could have challenged for the points today.” Alonso, who it later transpired had been fuelled to run as long as eventual second-place finisher Nick Heidfeld, ended his race in the wall after a spin at Turn 7 whilst fighting to get past the German. “It’s truly a missed opportunity today,” said the Spaniard. “I am extremely disappointed, as is the team, but our strategy was not the best suited for today.” Renault left rueing mistakes Toyota duo delivers a result 32
