"It's good to be part of the action again"

After a tough start to the Grand Prix weekend the OrangeArrows team was pleased to have an incident-free qualifying session at Silverstone today.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Enrique Bernoldi will line up in 16th and 18th positions respectively for tomorrow's British Grand Prix.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen

"We tried very hard today but unfortunately on my last run I caught traffic. It was a very tight session so just one tenth of a second can make a difference of three or four places. You have to get everything together for the last run, as that is the one that counts. I had three clear runs and then on the one that mattered I had traffic."

Enrique Bernoldi

"I'm pleased that we were able to improve the car with each run today. We are still struggling slightly for optimum balance in qualifying trim but I am hopeful for a good race tomorrow."

Graham Taylor, Chief Race Engineer, OrangeArrows

"Well first of all it's good to be part of the action again! Enrique managed to improve throughout the session but Heinz had a few problems with understeer. In the last sector on his final run he was four tenths slower than previously as he came across one of the Williams cars. As the grid is so tight that four tenths would have meant a top ten result for us but that's life. We're pleased we didn't have any technical problems after missing out on practice yesterday but a little disappointed as our positions don't reflect our pace. I'd like to say well done to the team for staying focused throughout the weekend."
