Car 10 MARK WEBBER, Position 10thI was going okay, but the track was breaking up and there were marbles on the racing line.Unfortunately, on the way back to the pits at the end of the second session, I was slightly offline, got onto the marbles and couldn't bring it back. I'm not sure how they're going tomanage with the track tomorrow, but everyone's in the same boat. I think we'll need to usemotocross bikes, as it's not realistic in a Formula One car, you'll need to drive on the grass oron the inside of the hairpin."
Car 9 DAVID COULTHARD, Position 13th"The track is breaking up, as it did two years ago, and it was incredibly difficult to drive atTurn 7 and at the hairpin. The track was swept between the first and second session, but itwas breaking up so quickly that it was like trying to drive on train tracks. When you've got thatamount of horsepower on a car that's slipping and sliding, it's incredibly difficult. I think wehad the pace to run inside the top ten today, but I had traffic on the last runs of both sessions.On the first I was behind Bourdais, and on the second behind Piquet. It's unfortunate to havea continued series of problems, but we're thirteenth tomorrow, and hopefully we can have astrong race from there."
CHRISTIAN HORNER, Team Principal: "After a really promising Q1 and first run in Q2,it's frustrating for Mark to get caught out by the difficult track conditions today. Unfortunately,unlike others that got away with an off-track excursion, he damaged the front of the carsufficiently enough not to take part in Q3. After not being happy with balance of his car thismorning, David made good progress in the first session, but unfortunately wasn't quite quickenough to make it into Q3 today. We feel with 10th and 13th that we've underperformed."
FABRICE LOM, Renault, Principal Engineer, Track Support: "It's a bitdisappointing. We were very quick with Mark, but were not able to continue due to Mark'saccident at the end of the second session. We were eligible for Q3, but not able toparticipate, so we finished 10th and 13th. Apart from that, the car and engine behaved welland it will be an interesting race tomorrow. Last year there were a lot of accidents, a lot ofthings can happen."
