Tuka Rocha qualifyed 12th for tomorrow's race, after he was forced to stop his car in the Senna chicane in his 9th lap. Team principal Michael Zele: "The Qualifying session didn't went well. At the beginning we haven't found the perfect set up and then there was the clutch problem. Because of a material failure the car lost the powertrain."

No positive news from Tuka's team mate Sven Heidfeld. He was trying hard to get sponsorship for the race, but he didn't manage to get any financial support and so he lost his cockpit for Jerez: "I am more than disappointed. Being here without having the possibility to race, is hard for me." Heidfeld, who doesn't know yet, if it will be possible for him to race this season again, will be busy tomorrow. He got the job as a co-presentor and will comment the race, which will be broadcasted live on the DSF.

1. Siedler 1'33.553
