Robbie Kerr's A1 Grand Prix fortunes have again given him a challenge for the races tomorrow with a tenth place position on the grid. Traffic and technical issues hampered Kerrs' efforts. Following battery failure at Brands Hatch and a first lap incident at EuroSpeedway, Kerr's points don't yet reflect his performance and efforts. Having come from 24th to second in the last race it's a good bet that he'll be putting up a good fight to get back on the podium tomorrow.

Robbie Kerr. "We've all been restricted to two sets of new rubber for qualifying because of the wet conditions yesterday so in the first session I went out on older rubber to get a feel for the car Unfortunately the Italians completely mucked my lap up by blocking me for the whole lap and not looking in his mirrors which is a bit frustrating and we'd made a change to the car so we weren't too sure where we were with it.

"We put the new tyres on and it went well and then we used them again for the third go -- I lost a bit of time with the tyres being older. Then on the fourth run the time just wasn't there -- it felt really strange but now we've found a minor technical problem that will be put right for tomorrow."
