Jarno Trulli has admitted that he was disappointed not to be able to convert pole position into Toyota's first Formula 1 victory after finishing third in the Bahrain Grand Prix.
Trulli ran second in the early stages behind team-mate Timo Glock, but slipped behind Jenson Button after his first pitstop.
He then lost another place, to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, during his second stop to take his second third place finish of the season.
"I'm a little bit disappointed because I was waiting for the first win for Toyota," said Trulli. "Unfortunately the start cost me a position. From then on, it was a hard race.
"I was following my team-mate, I was going longer and then during the second stint we went long on hard tyres. I was really fighting with a lot of cars. I was not really quick, but was competitive on the harder tyres."
Trulli added that although he was quicker than Vettel during his final stint, he had no opportunity to overtake.
"Eventually, Vettel took the position after my last stop. He was on the hard tyres and I was on the softs and I was pushing him because I was quicker. But there was no way of overtaking.
"I want to thank the team because they have done a very good job. Let's fight again in the next race."
