Difficult qualifying session at Red Bull

Mark Webber - P13“Obviously that was disappointing. It was difficult to find a rhythm today and neither of my flying laps in Q2 worked out. I was up on the last lap, but a bit of traffic cost me vital time in the last sector. It was a tricky session for us today.”

David Coulthard - P14“I had to make it up a little bit in qualifying today, as I missed out on track time this morning. On a track like this you really need miles to get your hand in. On my flying lap I was over the top on some corners, but I think I did pretty well on others. It’s not good to start the race tomorrow in the middle of the pack. The main factors for this track are getting the right tyre and getting your eye in, so you turn at the right point. 

Christian Horner“The weekend so far has been quite challenging and it’s obviously disappointing to line up 13th and 14th. Traffic in the final sector of Mark’s last lap cost him a place in the top ten, but I’m sure it’s going to be an incident filled race tomorrow. I think this race is a welcome new addition on the Formula One calendar. The organisers have done a superb job in putting together a first class facility and it’s a great spectacle to see Formula One at night time.”

Fabrice Lom, Renault“I don’t know what to say. It was a bad result today – for Red Bull and for Renault. It’s only the second time this year that we haven’t had a Renault in Q3. We need to look at the results today and understand why we weren’t quick enough.”
