Mika Salo and Pedro Diniz qualified their RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS C19s 15th and 16th respectively for tomorrow`s Italian Grand Prix.

Pedro Diniz:
Things weren`t as good for me today as yesterday, mainly because the car was a bit difficult under very heavy braking. I was losing some time there and we weren`t quite able to fix things in qualifying. Because of this problem I spoiled my last run when I ran wide in the first chicane.

Mika Salo:
Today I got the absolute maximum out of the car, and I don`t really know why I wasn`t quicker. I was quite lucky with traffic this afternoon, but on my last run I locked the front wheels momentarily going into the first corner. The car felt okay, but it just wouldn`t go any faster.

Willy Rampf:
Today underlines just how close F1 in general is these days and qualifying in particular. The fact that both C19s have been well balanced and reliable all weekend bodes well for tomorrow, and what is always a very tough race here.
