Liuzzi and Sato blame each other

Vitantonio Liuzzi and Takuma Sato pointed the finger at each other after tangling on the first lap of the Malaysian Grand Prix. The Toro Rosso and the Super Aguri were involved in an incident at Turn 4 that led to Liuzzi requiring a new front wing, and Sato dropping to the back of the field after a trip through the gravel.

"I think it's a shame that Sato pulled a crazy move at Turn 4 and compromised my race, as everything was going well." said Liuzzi. "But I collided with him and then that meant I also touched Scott's rear tire and had to come in for a new nose. A shame, as I felt my race pace was really strong and we could have done a lot better in terms of the final result."

Sato said that the Toro Rosso drivers were at fault for the accident.

"There was so much going on and a lot of cars were side-by-side going into Turn 1 and Turn 2 and in the concertina my front nose was damaged and my performance was compromised," he said. "Into Turn 4 I went side-by-side with the Toro Rossos and I was left with nowhere to go, so I was pushed off onto the gravel and I lost a lot of places."
