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

David Coulthard:

"There was failure on the car. Turn three is not a difficult corner, even when you're flat out, and I was on an out lap and not pushing hard at all. Something failed at the rear of the car and it just went away from me. I'm really pissed off as I think we were in really good shape this morning, but we just need to take it on the chin and see what we can do in the race."

Christian Klien:

"I got through the first qualifying part okay. The second part looked good at the beginning, but when I went out on new tyres I lost some time in the first sector. The car was understeering quite a lot and (Jacques) Villeneuve held me up on my last flying lap, but with this new qualifying system it's so easy to get held up in traffic."

"My qualifying position is not great, but it's a long race tomorrow and we'll play a little bit with our strategy, so hopefully we'll get some points."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"It was unfortunate that David suffered a problem. His car's water system lost pressure. He was quick this morning and was feeling confident ahead of the session. For Christian, we always knew it would be tight to get into the top ten, but we've been looking more competitive this weekend."

"Christian made it through to part two of the session and the first time he set was very respectable. Unfortunately he was blocked on his final run, which was a shame as it cost him the opportunity to improve. The grid is so tight now that every tenth of a second counts. But, we'll race hard tomorrow and go from there."
