Kimi Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya will start tomorrow's Australian Grand Prix from fourth and fifth on the grid after setting times of 1:25.822 and 1:25.976.

Qualifying Session One: Qualifying Session Two: Qualifying Session Three:

KIMI RAIKKONEN

"My qualifying today was OK but not perfect. I think we could have gone quicker if we had managed to get everything working, but the changing weather conditions made things a bit more of a challenge. The race tomorrow should be exciting, and I think we are in with a good chance. It should be possible for us to get our package to work perfectly, so we will see what happens. I'm looking forward to it that is for sure."

 

JUAN PABLO MONTOYA

"I'm quite disappointed as I think we could have been on the front row if I hadn't messed it up when I was on the new tyres. I came into Turn Five a bit too aggressively, hit the kerb and lost it, and that was it. However the car feels great and I know we have a strong strategy for the race, but I have just made things a bit more difficult for myself, but we will see what happens tomorrow."

 

RON DENNIS

"Considering our race strategy we can be quite pleased with the outcome of qualifying. The variable track conditions throughout today made things more of a challenge but the team coped very well adapting to the changing weather. As one can imagine we are looking forward to the race tomorrow. "

NORBERT HAUG

"I think we have quite a good basis with Kimi's fourth and Juan Pablo's fifth places. The front row was possible taking into account that Juan Pablo was fastest after the first two sectors and Kimi is a little bit less than two tenths from the front row. However we think we are in good shape for the race."
