San Marino Grand Prix - Qualifying Session turday 13 April 2002

Only three-thousandths of a second separated Mika Salo and Allan McNish in qualifying today. The Panasonic Toyota Racing drivers will start from 16th and 17th respectively for tomorrow's San Marino Grand Prix in Imola.

Mika Salo
"16th on the grid is not a bad place to be considering the problems we have had so far. We do not have much grip and the car does not ride the kerbs very easily. It is a bit frustrating at the moment, but we'll see tomorrow. I hope for a good start."

Allan McNish
"Overall it was a good day, although we are not as high up the grid as we would have liked. Having said that this is a representative position for us at this event. We made some improvements since yesterday and the car felt relatively good to drive in the qualifying session"

Keizao Takahashi - Technical Co-ordinator
"We were lucky today with the dry weather conditions, but still we have not found a perfect set up on Mika and Allan's car. We must make some improvements before tomorrow's race and then finish the race as high as possible."
