Fernando will start from pole this afternoon, while Giancarlo Fisichella will line up tenth on the grid.

Fernando Alonso:

"The second qualifying session is always difficult: it is the first hot lap of the day for the drivers, and you need to find the limit straight away. The wind was strong again today, and the circuit conditions a little bit worse than yesterday afternoon. But nevertheless I managed to do a good lap, and tried not to make any mistakes. It wasn't perfect, but I did what was necessary to keep pole position."

Giancarlo Fisichella:

"Of course, I am disappointed with the result of this session: I locked a wheel under braking for turn 4, so went wide and got on the dirty part of the track. It's not perfect to be starting from tenth, but I will certainly be able to fight hard in order to climb up the field and score points this afternoon."

Fernando Alonso
1st, 3:01.902, lap time: 1:32.054
Giancarlo Fisichella
10th, 3:03.765, lap time: 1:33.320
