Jean Alesi:

Obviously I am feeling extremely happy! This is my 10th anniversary since I came into F1, so this is the biggest present I could have. For today, it is enough. Now I am really looking forward to a party with my team. After my accident yesterday they did a fantastic job, working all night to complete my car, so this is a present for them. To start the French GP from the front row is a dream. For sure I have my greatest chance with my best-ever starting position for my home race, and I am feeling confident for tomorrow.

Pedro Diniz:

It's a shame I didn't go out at the beginning of the session. My last run wasn't bad, because the track was improving slightly, but then I spun. 11th on the grid is not bad, but of course it could have been better. Tomorrow I will be hoping for more points.

Peter Sauber:

The front row for Jean and 11th for Pedro is a fantastic result for us. My congratulations to Jean and his engineers, for having the courage to go out first in extremely difficult track conditions.

Weather:

Wet.
