Continuing this weekend's pre-Olympic theme, have a laugh at some of the silliest things said at past OIympic Games:
At the rowing medal ceremony: "And the wife of the IOC President is hugging the cox of the British crew."
At the boxing: "Sure there have been injuries and even some deaths in boxing, but none of them really that serious."
At the dressage: "This is a lovely horse and I speak from personal experience, having mounted her mother"
At the gymnastics: "I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father."
At the basketball: "He dribbles a lot and the opposition don't like it. You can see it all over their faces."
At the women's weight lifting: "I saw her snatch in practice this morning and it's amazing."
Car 10 MARK WEBBER, Position 8th
"That was a pretty good qualifying session, quite straightforward. It would have been nice to have had a bit more pace in Q3, but Q2 and Q1 went well for us. I'm disappointed I'm on the wrong side of the grid, an odd number is always better, but we definitely have a chance to get something from where we are, so we'll see how we go tomorrow."
Car 9 DAVID COULTHARD, Position 13th
"I was losing a little bit of time in each of the sectors and I couldn't deliver that last little bit of lap time because I was bringing the mid-corner speed too low. It's tough from thirteenth for sure, but the Hungarian race can be unpredictable, so let's see."
CHRISTIAN HORNER, Team Principal: "A respectable qualifying from Mark in a very tight field. We're close to our nearest rivals in Renault and Toyota, which should make for an interesting race tomorrow. David isn't far off the back of that group, he unfortunately didn't have a good second run in Q2, but we'll be fighting hard tomorrow."
BENTEYN PIERRE-EMERIC, Renault, M Webber Engine Engineer, Track Support: "Engine wise, we have been completely clear all weekend, which has allowed us to concentrate on the performance, of both the car and the engine. We would have preferred to have seen both cars appearing in Q3, but we are sure David will be strong tomorrow. Mark has a good chance for a good race."
