Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen will start tomorrow's Monaco Grand Prix in 14th and 15th places respectively after the second qualifying session.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I had some graining on the rear tyres which gave me a lot of oversteer and cost me time in the last corner. My mistake in the middle sector also cost me time. However, we were able to improve the car since Thursday and it felt quite a bit better."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"We decided for a rather conservative approach today. The most important thing is to have a solid race. If we can make that we can certainly score points tomorrow."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Without knowing about the strategies of our competitors I had expected better results today. Nick's slow time in the last part of the lap is explained by the heavy tyre graining his car suffered."
