Olivier Panis and Jacques Villeneuve will be looking forward to better luck in tomorrow's Austrian Grand Prix after suffering a difficult time in today's qualifying session.

The BARs will line up tenth and twelfth overall, with Olivier ahead of Jacques, after both drivers failed to get the best out of their cars.

Jacques Villeneuve:
"I did not drive very well today. I tried too hard and made too many mistakes. We also made some changes from this morning but we went the wrong way and there was not enough time to change it back during qualifying. It is disappointing but the car felt good so we will be looking to have a strong race tomorrow."

Olivier Panis:
"It was a hard session and during the last run I pushed really hard and achieved a good time but it was very close, with only two tenths between 5th and 10th place on the grid. I am not unhappy because the car has been running well all weekend."
