Comments from the Red Bull team after Saturday's qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"I was a bit too cautious in the final sector of my lap, so I think I could have got another half second out of the car. We have done a slightly better job in qualifying here than we did in Imola, but I think we still need to get more out of the car's potential. That is the only way for us to move forward. Having said that, I am reasonably comfortable with the race balance for tomorrow."

Tonio Liuzzi:

"Qualifying did not go too well for me. I had a problem with the brakes at turn 10. We changed something on the brakes before the session and it obviously did not do the job. Also, I locked the car in the hairpin and went straight otherwise the car was not too bad. But I think it will be very difficult for us tomorrow, in terms of moving up the grid. We will have to wait and see how the race pans out."

Christian Horner, Sporting Director:

"Today David drove a good lap and, as we can see, the grid is very tight. He lost a bit of time in the 2nd sector but the car looks good so I'm sure we can make up for it tomorrow. Tonio lost time in the middle sector after he braked into turn 10, but that is all part of learning process. I'm sure he'll respond tomorow."

Günther Steiner, Technical Director:

"Well I think that we did reasonably ok in the first qualifying session. David's qualifying was as expected and we will now work with on the strategy for tomorrow. Tonio had some problems with his brakes which where fitted new for this session, but they were inconsistent and therefore it was a challenge to find the right braking point. Apart from this the car is ok and we will, as always, be fighting for points."

David Coulthard:
Chassis Number: 3
Time: 1.15.795
Position: 10th

Tonio Liuzzi:
Chassis Number: 1
Time: 1.16.288
Position: 13th
