Team Sauber Petronas drivers Felipe Massa and Jacques Villeneuve will start today's Bahrain Grand Prix from 12th and 16th positions respectively after this morning's final qualifying session.

Jacques Villeneuve:

"At least I didn't go off like yesterday, even though the car is more difficult to drive when there's more fuel in the tank, so that's a big improvement. Now I just want to concentrate on the race."

Felipe Massa:

"That was pretty much what I expected from second qualifying. It was always going to be asking a lot to stay in the top 10 with the strategy we have chosen, and I made a bit of a mistake at the end of the second sector although I don't think that actually made much difference overall. I'm still very optimistic for the race, and I think with the plan we have I can really fight hard this afternoon."
