Nick Heidfeld and Felipe Massa brought their Sauber Petronas C21s home sixth and seventh in today's German Grand Prix.

Nick Heidfeld:

"The start of the race was pretty hectic. There was an awful lot of traffic. It took me a while to find a rhythm, but after that the car was pretty good apart from some understeer. My only problem was when I slid on to the grass in the stadium. I don't know whether that was my mistake or whether there was oil down. Whatever, it's good to score a point racing at home."

Felipe Massa:

"I had a fantastic opening stint and was able to overtake many cars while running ahead of Nick. I think today I proved that I can race well in F1. It's good to see the team earn another point, but of course I wish I could have been the one to score it."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Reliability is a part of competition, and both drivers and the team did a good job today. I am very happy to draw another point closer to Renault in the World Championship for Constructors."

Team Sauber Petronas is pleased to welcome Malaysia's Minister of Youth and Sports, Dato' Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, to the Hinwil factory tomorrow.
