The Sauber Petronas drivers Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen will start tomorrow's British Grand Prix in 16th and 14th places respectively after the second qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I'm not quite happy with my lap. It was my most difficult qualifying of the year! I didn't get the balance of the car right and was struggling a lot. It was also very windy on the track which put things topsy-turvy. But we will see how it goes tomorrow."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"I think I had a good lap although I must admit that I made a mistake braking into Abbey, which is why I didn't hit the apex there. I already had a good warm-up and could improve my lap time thanks to a well balanced car. Today we had sunny weather, but I must confess that I'm hoping and counting on rain for tomorrow."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"We cannot be satisfied with the starting positions 14 and 16, but this is what we had to expect. In recent years Silverstone has had some turbulent races and this could make the Grand Prix tomorrow particularly interesting and the result difficult to predict."
