Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Nick Heidfeld finished 10th and 16th respectively after today's first qualifying session for the Brazilian Grand Prix, and will therefore start tomorrow's qualifying session 11th and fifth.

Nick Heidfeld:

"This morning I had a problem when my car suffered an hydraulic failure, so I didn't get much running time. This afternoon the car felt a lot better in the slightly improved conditions, but I was quite cautious, especially in the last long left-hander to the start/finish line."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"Generally I'd say things this morning were okay, given the conditions and the spin I had. The track was better this afternoon, but worse for my run than it was for some of those who ran before me. That's life. The balance was quite good and overall I'm happy with what we achieved today."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"The conditions didn't do us any favours today. First of all it began to rain more just before Heinz-Harald went out, then later it dried so that some rivals were able to go quicker."
