Jean Alesi:
"We already knew, after last week's testing here, that we could not expect to be very competitive on this circuit, especially in qualifying. Today's result, unfortunately, confirms that feeling. But it is more important to think about the race and, as we saw in Spa, anything can happen. I feel quite ready."

Nick Heidfeld:
"It's hard to accept my poor qualifying result, since this morning's practice had gone quite well. For some reason, we have not been able to optimise the set-ups we found this morning. I know that tomorrow will be a big challenge, but I will do my best to deliver a result that gives us some satisfaction."

Alain Prost:
"Unfortunately, we haven't managed to repeat this morning's performance in qualifying. Our grid positions are not a surprise on this kind of circuit, even if time-gaps are quite small. We knew this track does not suit our cars and we seem to lose performance as the heat increases. We keep focusing on tomorrow's race."
