Olivier Panis "Everyone on the team has worked very hard all weekend but we aren't quick enough. I pushed very hard throughout the qualifying session and especially on my last lap but 13th really was the best we could get from the car today. It's not where we would like to be but we've started in this position before and have been able to go forward in the race. The team will work hard now for tomorrow and I continue to look forward to my first US Grand Prix."

Jacques Villeneuve "The whole weekend has been difficult and we haven't been able to solve all our problems in time for qualifying today. We are struggling to find grip and the car is slow so we have a lot of hard work to do for the race. In an attempt to improve I tried the T-car for the start of qualifying but this didn't help the situation."

Craig Pollock, Team Principal
"After the difficulties we encountered in the two practice sessions, we knew it was going to be hard for us to qualify well. Olivier has done a good job and his qualifying position is a better reflection of where the cars should be today. Jacques and his engineers have struggled with his car throughout the weekend and in qualifying tried everything they could with both the racecar and the T-car. We haven't been able to achieve the performance we are capable of with Jacques and I'm very disappointed for the whole team."
