Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso finished 4th and 14th in Thursday's qualifying session

Jarno Trulli:

"I had a good afternoon session and I am very pleased with my position. We managed to solve the problems that had hampered our work during this mornings session and thanks to the teams hard work the car improved considerably. We can expect a good weekend for us!"

Fernando Alonso:

"It's always difficult here in Monaco to do the perfect lap: I didn't get the maximum today from my car but it's Saturday that's important and I'll make sure that I will do much better than today and be further up on the starting grid."

Pat Symonds, Executive Engineering Director:

"A day of mixed fortunes. Jarno's lap time is acceptable whereas for some reason, we could not achieve with Fernando the level of performance we had hoped for. Now we have to analyse the situation and fix it, so that in Saturday's qualifying we can close the gap between the two drivers and have both cars amongst the front runners on the grid."

Denis Chevrier, Engine Operations Manager:

"Our results today are quite encouraging with a fairly good lap from Fernando and a perfect lap from Jarno, which confirm that our cars are competitive on this track. This was a productive day in which we gathered useful data in preparation for the race."

Jarno Trulli
