Team Sauber Petronas drivers Felipe Massa and Jacques Villeneuve will start today's Spanish Grand Prix from 10th and 12th positions respectively after this morning's final qualifying session.

Jacques Villeneuve:

"After yesterday's bad qualifying it was important to feel the car out for the race during final qualifying. It was just a safe lap, really, because we couldn't overtake anyone or be overtaken by anyone. The car was quite good, so I think we should be okay for the race."

Felipe Massa:

"Well, I'm in the top 10 as we had hoped. It was a good lap, quicker than David but not quite enough overall to move me ahead of him. The car felt nice and stable even with race fuel aboard, so we have a decent race set-up. I hope I can make a good start and maybe make up a position or two, but in any case I can fight for more points this afternoon."

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C24-06
2:34.224s, 10th

Jacques Villeneuve
Chassis: C24-04
2:36.480s, 12th
