Pat Symonds, Technical Director:
"Conditions in qualifying were extremely difficult, but of course this applies to all teams. We missed a great opportunity on a circuit where we have tested extremely competitively under all conditions. I guess that's the luck of the game, but I am confident from all the testing we have done that we have a car that is very strong in the race."

Giancarlo Fisichella:
12th, 1:27.253
"I have been happy with the car all weekend and as the track got drier we adapted our set-up and I felt we were really competitive. But a combination of mistakes in turn 10 and traffic meant we didn't manage to fulfil our potential."

Alexander Wurz:
20th, 1:28.205
"I ran in the spare car for qualifying because this morning there was a problem on my race car that we couldn't identify. I was quite comfortable with the set-up, and was able to push hard but the track was improving dramatically throughout the session so the only laps that counted were the last ones and on my last one I got a yellow flag."
