Comments from the Red Bull team after qualifying for the Hungarian Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"The qualifying session didn't go quite as we hoped. On each run, I was going quicker and the final lap was looking good, but unfortunately I came up behind Tiago Monteiro and lost some time. I dropped about eight tenths of a second, so I didn't even finish it."

Christian Klien:

"Luckily I was able to get through the first part of qualifying using just one set of tyres. In the second part, I improved my time on both new sets of tyres. It was actually quite tricky to drive in today's sessions, as the car was quite nervous."

"We need a good race tomorrow to make some progress and hopefully I'll finish the race in a higher position than I did in today's qualifying."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"I think David was unlucky on his final lap. He looked set to improve his time, but got held up in traffic. I think making the top ten would have been difficult today, although I think we could have been a little bit higher up than we were."

"With the penalties for Alonso, M. Schumacher and Button we will benefit a couple of positions, and we've opted for a tyre that will hopefully serve us well in the race."

Best Time: 1:20.890
