Formula1 - RED BULL Racing F1 France GP Qualifying review

15.07.2006: Formula1 - RED BULL Racing F1 France GP Qualifying review

LET'S PARLER FRANGLAIS

Le Scot est over la lune to etre in top dix (The Scot is over the moon to be in the top ten)

Demain l'Autruche will deliver le coup de grace dans la race (Tomorrow the Austrian will drive a lawn mower in the race)

Chef de kip thinks this was un joli bon try de la part des deux (The team boss thinks this was a jolly good try by the father of two)

DAVID COULTHARD, Position 9th

"On low fuel, the car was very well-balanced, there just wasn't enough speed in the turns to be competitive with the other guys in the final qualifying session. We didn't run new tyres in the lastpart, as we weren't expecting to qualify any higher up. The race will be tough balance-wise I think; tyres are a big issue here, track temperature is high and there are a lot of long corners, so the rear tyres are going to drop off quite a bit. We're starting from a pretty good position, so if we keep out of trouble we may score some points."

CHRISTIAN KLIEN, Position 12th

"That was a good qualifying session for the team actually. I was quite happy with my twelfth position in the end. I did every run on a new set of tyres and was going quicker and quicker. I was happy with the car's balance today, we were also on the right tyres so that was definitely an improvement from yesterday. Hopefully we have a chance for a good race tomorrow - I'm quite optimistic."

CHRISTIAN HORNER,

"A solid qualifying performance by both drivers. David did very well to make the last ten for the first time since Monaco and we then elected to take a strategic approach to his final qualifying section. As Rosberg had already picked up an engine penalty, which dropped him ten places, we'll start from ninth and twelfth on the grid tomorrow, our aim is to try and gain some points."
