Comments from the Red Bull team after qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"The balance of the car was the same as it had been this morning - and wasn't very good. On this type of track you need entrance stability in order to carry speed into the turns and I just haven't been able to find it. I've scored points from the back of the grid before and it's not over until the chequered flag, but clearly this makes it a lot more difficult to get a good result."

Robert Doornbos:

"We really wanted to attack in the last qualifying session of the year and I think we did that. The sessions are a lot of fun - you can really drive on the limit and get the maximum out of the car. I think I got the maximum out of the car today. We've gone through tomorrow's race in our minds set-up wise, and we're going to be pushing hard."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"Obviously, it was a disappointing qualifying session for David who hasn't been happy with the balance of his car all day. Robert did a good job. We decided that he'd only do one run in the second qualifying session, due to knowing what our limitations are and the ten-place grid penalty we collected for Robert's engine change. Hopefully, we'll be stronger in the tomorrow's race. "
