The Renault F1 Team remains confident after a strong performance in qualifying today.

Jarno Trulli:

"The team has done a very good job these past two days in developing the car and the result is reflected in my fifth place today. I am very happy with the car, since we found a good compromise with the aero-package. Furthermore, I am confident with the race strategy we have chosen and with the reliability of the car, so I really think we should finish in the points tomorrow."

Fernando Alonso:

"Today in qualifying we were able to work on a dry track, which had been impossible yesterday afternoon. I am quite happy with my laptime because I didn't make any mistakes and the car felt good. I am in 10th position and, considering that I believe we have a good strategy, I think that tomorrow we could bring home some more points."

Pat Symonds, Executive Engineering Director, Mild Seven Renault F1 Team:

"A reasonably satisfactory qualifying session for us. We are pleased with Jarno's starting position which is in line with the strategy we intend to employ. Although Fernando didn't get the best out of his lap, his starting position, in tenth place, considering our strategy, should allow him to have a good race as well."

Denis Chevrier, Engine Operations Manager, Mild Seven Renault F1 Team:

"As it has always been the case on this circuit, the lap times are very close, with 15 drivers in one second. We have done a good job throughout the weekend so far, without incurring in any problem and I see no reason for the team not to have a good result in tomorrow's race."


Jarno Trulli: 5th
1:13.953
Fernando Alonso: 10th
1:14.384
