Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso qualified 4th and 8th in Saturday's session for the Monaco Grand Prix

Jarno Trulli:

"A positive weekend for me so far with a very good qualifying position. The team has done a great job and the car has been constantly competitive. I believe we have a good strategy and I'm looking forward to tomorrow's race."

Fernando Alonso

"Considering that this morning's session was spoiled for me by my spin, which made me miss a lot of track time, I am quite satisfied with my qualifying result. I did a good lap and I am happy to start in eight position on tomorrow's grid."

Pat Symonds, Executive Engineering Director:

"I am very pleased indeed with the performance and the qualifying positions of both or cars on the grid, which exceeded our expectations. Bearing in mind the key factor of strategy on this circuit and the competitiveness of our car and tyres, I feel that we have a very good possibility of a strong result here in Monaco."

Denis Chevrier, Engine Operations Manager:

"A good qualifying for both drivers which confirms Thursday session's result: a good level of competitiveness. Fernando's performance this afternoon might have been slightly hampered by his lack of practice this morning, due to his accident whereas Jarno's placement corresponds to our objectives."
