Tonio Liuzzi: We’re back in business

Tonio Liuzzi has paid compliment to the Force India team following his points finish in Canada, saying they “pushed him to the maximum”. The Italian started fifth on the grid following a terrific qualifying session and, although his race was marred by skirmishes with some drivers, he still managed to finish in ninth place – one ahead of team-mate Adrian Sutil.

It was a greeting come back to form for Liuzzi who was freshly rumored to be on his way out of Force India.

“It’s positive that we could both finish in the points and I could always overtake,” he said. “It showed that when the car is there, I’m there, and I’m ready to give 100%. We showed in Montreal that we’re back in business. The two races in Barcelona and Turkey where I struggled, we believe we know the reason why it didn’t work and we made some changes to make sure Montreal would be better.

“The team did a great job, because they kept pushing and they believed in me, and this is what I love about this team, because we are a family and there’s always big trust between us. They always push me to the maximum and support me in every situation. Plus they kept pushing with development. We brought an update on Friday night which helped the driveability of the car. We could have had a massive result if we didn’t have the crash in the first lap.”

“I had fights with Michael, with [Jamie] Alguersuari, with Adrian, with [Nico] Hulkenberg, with [Felipe Massa] Massa so it was quite an entertaining race! I saw that it was the last lap, and I saw that Michael was struggling a lot with the tyres so I used the chance, I saw the door open, and I went for it.

“I was sure that he would understand that you cannot risk anything when you are struggling. Fighting with Michael is always great because he’s really professional. We had some contact, but he was always correct, and at the end Adrian and I finished ninth and 10th, and I think it’s a great result for Force India.”
