The Sauber Petronas drivers Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen will start tomorrow's Hungarian Grand Prix in 11th and 17th places respectively after the second qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I'm quite happy with my lap time even though I made a bit of a mistake in the second corner. In general, this result confirms the improvements we have made recently to the C22. This morning we did some long runs and improved there, too, so I'm optimistic for the race tomorrow."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"The car was oversteering quite a bit which made the handling difficult. I think to do better was not possible. My mistake in the second corner didn't actually cost me that much time, but we need to look at the data analysis before we can understand why I lost time in the second sector."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Nick was able to endorse the upward trend we have shown recently and was able to achieve a strong lap ahead of our two direct competitors, Jordan and BAR. Heinz-Harald couldn't use the potential of his C22 to the full. We are now looking forward to an exciting race, which is surely guaranteed when you look at the mix of the starting grid."
