Canadian GP BAR qualifying notes

Jacques Villeneuve "After the problems we had yesterday we have made some progress so I am relatively happy with the outcome. I have not had much running time so we had to work on set-up throughout the qualifying session so it has been very tough.

"After the problems we had yesterday we have made some progress so I am relatively happy with the outcome. I have not had much running time so we had to work on set-up throughout the qualifying session so it has been very tough. We have still not achieved our ideal set-up so we have a lot of work still to do."

Olivier Panis
"I am happy for the team with the qualifying position that we achieved today. I am disappointed for Jacques as he had a bad day yesterday which has set him back slightly. This is my best qualifying position so far this season so I am happy with that. As always the team and my engineer David Lloyd did a great job. I am looking forward to the race."

Malcolm Oastler, Technical Director
"As a qualifying session it was quite good. We are very happy to have Olivier in sixth position on the grid. We have made Jacques' job very difficult here, but he did a very solid job and was able to improve on every run to end up in ninth position. It has been a challenging weekend so far but the qualifying line up gives us confidence going into the race.

Craig Pollock, Team Principal and Managing Director
"It has been a difficult day. The team have worked extremely hard to make progress after the problems we had yesterday. Both drivers did an exceptional job under the circumstances and look as if they will be very competitive during the race. For us the objective is to put ourselves in a points scoring position and we will be looking to achieve that tomorrow."
