Weather we like Scott Speed's character or not shouldn't matter while judging the way his bosses try to get rid of him (and Tonio who haven't voiced yet)
Just read a bit of Franz Tost's version, from gpupdate.net

Again, I can't say who is or isn't right, but between us Scott sounded way more sincere...
See for yourself
Some reports said Speed was assaulted by Franz Tost after the race as Tost would have grabbed Speed by his shoulder to stop him from walking away. But the Scuderia Toro Rosso team boss said it was nothing like that. He told Swiss newspaper Blick: "When Speed returned from his incident on Sunday I asked him why he flew off the track. He just smiled at me and asked 'Why did my pitstop had to take that long?' and walked away immediately. At that point I grabbed his shoulder and told him that this is not the way to discuss these matters."
Tost doesn't believe there is a war going on in his team but he is pretty unhappy with the way his drivers are performing at the moment. He said: "I'd rather have none of my current drivers in our car at the moment."
I especially like the "At that point I grabbed his shoulder and told him that this is not the way to discuss these matters."
Seriously who will buy that!
He just expressed he percieved Scott's atitude as unresponsible and arrogant, and he want to make us believe his reaction was a "c'mon boy, it's not a way to discuss those matters" type, with an amical tap on the shoulder...
Sounds to me like an archaïc defense of someone feeling he got a little bit too far, and want to present things in an indulgent angle.
