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

David Coulthard:

"I think we made some improvements in qualifying compared to this morning, so I'm happy with that but obviously I'm disappointed with what happened with Montoya. He obviously made a mistake on his flying lap and then, in trying to make me pay for his pain, he drove slowly round the end of the lap before I could start mine. So, we'll have a Stewards enquiry to see what happens there, but to me it was deliberate action, which impeded another driver."

"Regarding Ralf, his car came up behind me when I was behind Michael Schumacher who was on an in-lap. It was unfortunate, but I couldn't get past Michael, so therefore Ralf couldn't get past me. If I'd moved, he'd have just been at the back of Michael - we were all backed up."

Christian Klien:

"I was a bit happier with the balance of my car this afternoon. On my last set of tyres I was able to push quite hard and improve my time. I was on a good lap, but then I locked up the rears over a bump in to Turn 15. I lost the rear and my time was gone, otherwise it would have been a good lap I think. Tomorrow's race should be good and we can try to fight for points."

Christian Horner, Sporting director:

"An incident took place between David and Montoya in the second part of qualifying, which I'm sure the stewards will look in to and take action accordingly. Christian was pushing very hard, but unfortunately wasn't able to put all his best sectors together, he would have been next to David on the grid if he had of done. But, we've made improvements during the course of the weekend and hopefully that will carry through to tomorrow."
