<pre> Result: 9th Giancarlo Fisichella chassis B200-02 time 1:31.992 14th Alexander Wurz chassis B200-03 time 1:32.775

Weather: Sunny Temperature: Air 31-33 ; Track 40-45 </pre>

Giancarlo Fisichella:
"We aimed to get in the first ten so I am fairly satisfied with this position. My first flying lap was good and we made a good improvement for the last run, my split times show I could have been three tenths of a second quicker, but our gamble of going out right at the end didn't pay off because of the red flag that interrupted my last attempt."

Alexander Wurz:
"I was ridiculously unlucky with traffic in qualifying today. On every one of my flying laps I had someone in front of me who didn't look in their mirror. It is very frustrating because after the two sessions this morning we had finally got to grips with the tyres and I knew I could have put in some strong lap times. Needless to say, I am very disappointed."

Rocco Benetton:
"Well after all the winter testing we know now where all the teams stand and there are no big surprises, although I am disappointed as I feel with a little luck we could have improved a couple of positions. Nevertheless we made good progress with Giancarlo and although Alex had the potential to achieve a much better result, he seemed to be troubled by traffic to an abnormal degree."
