Pedro Diniz:
On my first lap I lost time in traffic, and then I had no chance afterwards to go quicker. I’m very disappointed.

Mika Salo:
The way the conditions were today, qualifying was a complete lottery. I caught two cars on my first flying lap, and that was enough to compromise the time. After that the weather ensured that there was no chance to improve, though I managed to get close to my time later as the track momentarily began to dry a little. It's frustrating to qualify only 15th because we know from free practice that the C19 is working well here. But it will be a good race tomorrow. The car is quick...

Peter Sauber:
Today was just a lottery, and nothing to do with strategy. Tomorrow it will make little difference for us if the race is dry or wet because we have proved this weekend that the C19 is good in either condition. But by preference I would be happier with a dry race; it’s safer here if the drivers don’t have to run in a wet tunnel through the woods. And it’s better for the spectators, too.
