Ralf Schumacher:
"Eight points for me and six for Juan, these two podium finishes are super for our team. Obviously it is a bit disappointing again not to win after I have set pole position but I could not quite achieve the victory here. There was no way I could overtake Michael even though I was stuck on his tail. Also my left rear view mirror broke and it was bothering me as it was even hitting my helmet in some corners. I never changed my front tyres during this race because after having experienced some graining problems in the first part of the race I did not want to drive through a performance dip again. This result clearly shows how much we have improved and that we are on the right way up after a difficult start to the season."

"It was a good performance from us today but we had hoped for an even better result. I made a mistake on lap two and lost a few positions so I had to fight my way up again. I had a hard race. Due to some brake problems I missed the chicane a couple of times and from lap one I had to use the manual downshift, which I am not really used to. I had the same problem Ralf had with the rear mirror which broke and was flopping in front of my face and was distracting me. In the end I could catch up with Ralf and Michael but had no chance to pass them. To-day we proved again that our cars have improved and that we are definitely on our way up."
Sam Michael (Chief Operations Engineer, WilliamsF1):
"It is a good result for the team, although it is a shame we could not overtake Michael. He was quick on his first stint, but had to slow down from his second stint onwards for some reason. It is obvious that the performance of our car package is definitely improving, and the whole team did a good job here. We are looking forward to the Nurburgring where we will have some more improvements."
