Team Sauber Petronas drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Felipe Massa will start tomorrow's Spanish Grand Prix from 12th and 17th places respectively after this afternoon's qualifying sessions.

Giancarlo Fisichella:

"I am pretty pleased with the way things went today, because we achieved our target. We have a good race strategy with some good possibilities, and we know that the tyre performance is consistent, so if things go our way I believe that I can score some points."

Felipe Massa:

"I made a mistake in Turn Seven, and lost everything there. It was my fault completely. Without that it would have been a good lap, at least four-tenths faster. I'm not so happy with myself, but I know that I have a good car for the race, and that the tyres are pretty consistent, and I will be pushing very hard tomorrow."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Giancarlo fully exploited the potential of the car this afternoon, and starting from 12th place he can achieve something tomorrow. Felipe had similar potential and without his mid-sector mistake would have been at the same level as Giancarlo, as he had been in all the practice sessions."

Giancarlo Fisichella
Chassis: C23-04
1:17.444s, 12th

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C23-06
1:17.866s, 17th
