Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen finished 14th and 15th fastest respectively after today's first qualifying session for the British Grand Prix, and will therefore start tomorrow's qualifying session in seventh and sixth positions.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I am quite happy with my lap under these circumstances. But I must say that it didn't go that well for me in free practice as my car was understeering a lot. In preparation for qualifying this afternoon we made a change in the set-up without having the chance to test whether it would be good or not. Fortunately it paid off and gave me a much more balanced car."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I think my lap was pretty good. I didn't have any major problems and in contrast to today's free practice session in the morning, the car's balance was improved for qualifying."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"After today's morning session when both drivers were not happy with the handling of the cars we were able to make an improvement for qualifying. Now the engineers have to analyse the data again and must try to make another step in this direction."
