OrangeArrows drivers, Enrique Bernoldi and Jos Verstappen, will start tomorrow's German Grand Prix from 19th and 20th position respectively.

Both drivers were amongst the first to head out onto the track for a very hot qualifying session. Although improving with each run, Bernoldi and Verstappen had to settle for 19th and 20th spot on the grid.

Enrique Bernoldi
"We improved the balance of the car and the times were getting better with each run. My last fast lap was wasted as Jenson Button's engine blew up in front of me. I definitely think the set-up is much better now so I'm looking forward to the race. We've done a lot of work on the car, especially the brakes, so let's hope for a good one."

Jos Verstappen
"That was a pretty hard session for us. The handling of the car was not so good this morning but we did manage to improve it for qualifying and again during the session. My last run was looking good, with a good second sector time, but you have to take a gamble on your last flying lap and unfortunately I spun. So, it could have been better but that's racing."

Mike Coughlan, Technical Director
"Well the cars are well-balanced and both drivers improved their times throughout the session. As you can see from the grid it's in power order. Although the differences are very small they are amplified at a track like Hockenheim."
