"In terms of pace we are closer than normal to some of the other teams and that is positive. But after yesterdayTs practice and our good form this morning we expected to be higher on the grid, so of course I am disappointed to be 15 th . I am frustrated about what happened on my last run, because one of the Jaguars got in my way and cost me a couple of tenths which could have gained me two or three positions. Generally, in qualifying trim the problem we encountered was that we did not have enough grip."

Jenson Button
"I only managed a few timed laps this morning because of an engine problem, although I was quite happy with the time I did. In qualifying I used the T-car, which had quite a few things that Giancarlo likes but I don't. I didn't really feel comfortable and I couldn't get rid of the understeer, no matter what I tried. Giancarlo and I use different steering arms, and as a result his car feels much heavier. That doesn't suit my style. It has just been one of those days, I'm afraid, and I was unable to show the car's full potential.
