Norbert Siedler finished the second Qualifying in a great sixth position. His gap to the leading Kovalainen: 0.698. "It was difficult for me to make a fast lap. In the second Qualifying we made some small changes on the set-up seven minutes before the end and then I made the 1'32.705 lap time."

Superfund Zele-Racing team principal Michael Zele: "An unexpected top performance of Norbert. We are still searching for the optimal set-up and we are on the right way."

Siedlers team colleague Tuka Rocha had difficulties in two sectors of the circuit. Team principal Zele: "Everything looked like he would make a fast lap, but then he obviously made a mistake." Rochas engineer Yan Gleyo: "In the second qualifying we nearly had the same set-up as in the first and Tuka improved a little bit. The pole position time of Kovalainen in the second is nearly the same like in the first."

The first race of the Superfund World Series by Nissan is taking place tomorrow at 11:45h, the second at 14:15h. Norbert Siedler is starting in the first race from position 15 and in the second from position 6. His team-mate Tuka Rocha is starting in the first from position 17 and in the second race from position 18.
