Christian Horner: “An interesting qualifying session. Both drivers did a good job to get to Q3 at a circuit which probably doesn’t best suit the characteristics of our car. Strategies have come into play in the final part of qualifying – and it’s a shame both drivers aborted their final laps: a tenth of a second difference for Sebastian could have been fifth place today, demonstrating how close it is. It’s a mix of KERS cars and non-KERS cars on the grid, which will make an interesting first lap tomorrow.”

Mark Webber: “We’ll see how the strategy pans out tomorrow – we’ve got to try and grab everything we can now. I’m pretty happy with the job I did today and the guys (team) have done a good job all weekend, but we’re just lacking a bit of pace. We’ll do what we can tomorrow and salvage something from tenth – it’s certainly possible.”

Fabrice Lom: “I have mixed feelings today. We showed good pace in Q2, compared to what we saw in P3 this morning, so we’re satisfied with that, but unfortunately, after today’s qualifying, we are ninth and tenth. We could have easily been fifth today, there was just a very small amount of difference in the lap times, so it’s a bit of a disappointing end result. Tomorrow it will be difficult with the KERS cars – it will be a quick race, as Monza is the shortest race of the year, but it’s going to be a tough one.”

Sebastian Vettel: “Not a very good session for us today, ninth and tenth is not where we wanted to be, but let’s wait to see the fuel weights. It’s a long race tomorrow, anything can happen and our target is to score points.”
