Liuzzi pleased with sixth Position in Montreal

Published

Tonio Liuzzi was delighted to have quiet his enemy by qualifying sixth for Force India in Montreal. Three places in front of team-mate Adrian Sutil, the Italian made the most of a brand-new chassis after modernize had reasoned ill affects in Turkish GP. Force India reserve driver Paul di Resta on the sidelines and – in the opinion of some fans and insiders – poised to take Liuzzi’s seat, the latter set his pace by qualifying alongside reigning Champion Jenson Button in sixth on Saturday.

“It’s good to be back in business after Turkey!” Tonio beamed after qualifying. “We understood a lot of things from there and also Monaco and pushed really hard to make things better.

“We changed the chassis and brought some new updates that we tested on Friday and then this morning and, so far, everything is great.”P6 is a good position to be in but it won’t be easy tomorrow as the tyre wear will be high and I think it will make for a really crazy race.

“This circuit seems to suit us well, with our aero package and setup, and we’ve seen a big step forward. It’s a great team effort and if Adrian and I can both finish in the points tomorrow it would make a brilliant reward for the hard work we’ve done over the past few weeks.”
