Team Sauber Petronas drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Felipe Massa will start tomorrow's United States Grand Prix from 14th and 15th position respectively after this afternoon's qualifying sessions.

Giancarlo Fisichella:

"We suffered with lack of rear-end grip in qualifying, which we expected after yesterday. Although my lap today was not perfect, I know we have a good race strategy. In other races we have had good race pace and proved that we can do well, so I'll be pushing hard again tomorrow."

Felipe Massa:

"Considering the performance over the whole weekend I think I had a reasonable lap. The race will be very tough for us, but others have also been and we still scored points in them, which of course is always our goal."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"We know that our cars and drivers are better than their grid positions suggest, and the time difference to our competitors in qualifying is vexing."

Giancarlo Fisichella
Chassis: C23-04
1:12.470s, 14th

Felipe Massa
Chassis: C23-01
1:12.721s, 15th
