Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Nick Heidfeld finished 16th and 17th respectively after today's first qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix, and will therefore start tomorrow's qualifying session in fifth and fourth positions.

Nick Heidfeld:

"I was struggling with oversteer this morning and we made some changes for the afternoon. They improved the car's balance for qualifying but obviously not enough. I am not happy with my position but we think we have a direction to go for tomorrow."

Heinz-Harald Frentzen:

"It's not as bad as it looks. We made a small step with the car this afternoon. Unfortunately it was in the wrong direction, and I had too much oversteer. I'm sure we can do better tomorrow."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"Our Friday qualifying result is disappointing. We obviously moved into the wrong direction when setting up the cars for the afternoon session. Now we must analyse the results and what we have learnt today, in order to improve our performance for second qualifying and the race."
