Comments from the Red Bull team after qualfying for the Canadian Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"I had a lot of oversteer during qualifying, which I've had all weekend and it basically means I can't carry speed into the corners. That's where you lose the time here, so it doesn't surprise me that I was at the back end of the second qualifying group."

"We can't really change anything on the car now before the race, apart from front wing adjustments and, as I think we've got bigger issues than that, we'll just have to do the best we can. I think it's going to be a tough race."

Christian Klien:

"P12 is okay. I didn't get too much lap time yesterday and I was just two hundredths behind the top ten time today, which I think is pretty good. We drove to get the maximum out of the car and I think this is an okay position to be starting from tomorrow. It's important we get to the finish of this race, and starting four places behind a potential points position is not too bad."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"The difference between Christian's 12th position and making it into the top ten today was less than a blink of an eye. Obviously, it's very close in the midfield, but with the position our drivers are in, we can plan their strategies according to what we think the drivers ahead are doing. It's disappointing not to get one of the cars in the top ten, but hopefully we'll have a competitive race tomorrow."
