Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen, who ran different strategies this afternoon, will start tomorrow's PETRONAS Malaysian Grand Prix in sixth and 13th places respectively after the second qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"This morning there were a couple of things about the car's set-up that I wasn't happy with, but though my lap this afternoon wasn't as smooth as yesterday's qualifying lap, I'm quite happy. We improved the balance, particularly in the third sector, and I'm confident that we can do something good tomorrow starting from sixth place on the grid."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"Obviously I was running a different strategy to Nick, and I was pleased with my lap. I was pretty much on the limit, the balance of the car was good, and I am on target for the strategy I was running."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"In Melbourne running two different strategies in qualifying paid off for us in the race, and I believe that the situation is the same here in Sepang. Congratulations to Nick for his third row position, and thanks to Heinz-Harald for a strong performance."
