Nick Heidfeld and Heinz-Harald Frentzen finished 10th and 11th for Team Sauber Petronas in today's San Marino Grand Prix.

Nick Heidfeld:

"It's never enjoyable to finish a race but not to score points. I made a good start but then I got pushed on to the grass by one of the BARs and lost a couple of places. After that I had the choice for a two or a three-stop strategy and we chose the three, although we know the chances of getting blocked were higher. Unfortunately I did get blocked quite a lot, so that was it."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"We did our best today and I think we got the best out of the car, but too many of the front-runners were reliable. Our situation is a bit clearer now. The car is very reliable, but we need the things we have in the pipeline to improve it further."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"We are not surprised by the result of this race, but obviously we cannot be satisfied with it. It was the first regular race of the season, and it showed the limitations of the Sauber Petronas C22."
