WEBBER TO MISS QUALIFYING

CHRISTIAN HORNER, Team Principal: "Mark was on a really quick lap towards the end of P3; he'd just set his fastest first sector. It was a really unfortunate incident, which is quite costly. It means we have to make a chassis change this afternoon, so he won't be able to take part in qualifying. We'll have to re-scrutineer the new chassis in the morning (Sunday), which will necessitate him starting the race from the pit lane. So, not a good start to the weekend."

Car 14 MARK WEBBER: "You think of the preparation that goes into a weekend like this, so to not have the opportunity to do the race from a decent grid position is very tough for all of us especially the guys in the garage. It wasn't a big crash by any means, but it did too much damage to the chassis, so we have to change it. We don't have spare cars these days, so that's the outcome and it's a shame. We made a few changes to the car for the final run and I lost control when it bottomed-out through Turn 8."
