Team Sauber Petronas drivers Jacques Villeneuve and Felipe Massa will start today's Monaco Grand Prix from ninth and 11th positions respectively after this morning's final qualifying session in which they were 11th and 10th fastest.

Jacques Villeneuve:

"It was a pretty good session. I had hoped to be up behind David Coulthard because we make good starts, and it's a pity to lose a place to Michael, but the car was neutral in its behaviour so I'm reasonably happy. We always run stronger in the race than in qualifying and we have a good strategy, so let's see what happens."

Felipe Massa:

"The track improved a lot during the session, and when I was out it was still very slippery. Like yesterday, it would have been easy to make a mistake but I had a good lap. I'm just going to go for it this afternoon, but I know it will be tough. Above all here, in this situation, the most important thing is to be there at the finish."

Jacques Villeneuve
Chassis: C24-04
2:34.936, 9th

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C24-02
2:35.120, 11th
