<pre> Driver (Chassis) Free Practice Qualifying Nick Heidfeld (C20-03) 1:32.392, 6 1:25.007, 12 Kimi Raikkonen (C20-01) 1:31.726, 4 1:24.671, 10 Spare/T-Car (C20-04) </pre> Kimi Raikkonen and Nick Heidfeld qualified their RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS C20s 10th and 12th respectively for tomorrow's San Marino Grand Prix.

Peter Sauber (Team Principal)
I am happy with another top 10 qualifying position, which is always our clear goal. It underlines the competitiveness of the C20 on yet another different type of track, and confirms that our performances in the first three races of the season were no flash in the pan.

Nick Heidfeld (Driver)
Basically there was nothing special about qualifying for me. I had traffic on my second to last run, and then we made a change to the car for the last one. Unfortunately we still had some balance problems, and I lost time in the last sector. I just don't understand where the speed went, after the car was so good yesterday and again this morning.

Kimi Raikkonen (Driver)
A top 10 qualifying position is good, but I'm not happy because I know I should have been higher than 10th place. On my last run things were looking good, but I braked a little bit too late in the last corner and ran over the kerb on the inside and lost maybe three or four tenths. It would have been nice to finish the lap well because without that I should have been eighth or ninth. But these things happen. The car is very good here, and it's doing everything I want it to.
