Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Nick Heidfeld finished 15th and 12th respectively after today's first qualifying session for the Austrian Grand Prix, and will therefore start tomorrow's qualifying session in sixth and ninth positions.

Nick Heidfeld:

"In the morning I was struggling with oversteer and the car didn't feel good. We made some changes for the qualifying which improved the balance of the car a bit. I am not satisfied with my position, but I'm a bit happier than I was in Barcelona."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"As I did this morning, this afternoon I had problems with the very low level of grip on the track and the car was very nervous. I wasn't able to attack. Now we need to analyse the data and find the reasons for this. I'm sure there is room for improvements."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"We could only partly transfer our positive results of the morning to qualifying. Now we must analyse the results from the data, particularly from Heinz-Harald's car, to find out why he was unable to match expectations."
