Best 2008 grid position: 3rd Jarno Trulli (Malaysia)

Best 2008 race result: 2nd Timo Glock (Hungary)


Jarno Trulli (Car 11, Chassis TF108-05)

Summary: Safely through to Q3 and made the fourth row PROVISIONAL GRID: 7th

FP3 4th Best Lap Time: 1m 36.686s (+1.222s) Laps: 9

Q1 10th Best Lap Time: 1m 35.906s (+0.692s) Laps: 12

Q2 4th Best Lap Time: 1m 36.008s (+0.171s) Laps: 8

Q3 7th Best Lap Time: 1m 39.152s (+1.597s) Laps: 6

"That was a hell of a session. It was really hard to drive the car and visibility was really poor. At one point in Q2 Sebastian Vettel slowed suddenly on the straight in front of me.

In these conditions we were very lucky not to have an accident so that was a dangerous moment. Still, on our side we managed to do a good qualifying so we are happy. It is a good way to prepare for tomorrow and now we will do our best in the race.

There is always a special atmosphere here in Monza because there are a lot of motor racing fans. Now we will try really hard to earn a good result in front of my home supporters."


Timo Glock (Car 12, Chassis TF108-06)

Summary: Quickest this morning and made Q3, taking 9th PROVISIONAL GRID: 9th

FP3 1st Best Lap Time: 1m 35.464s (fastest) Laps: 16

Q1 9th Best Lap Time: 1m 35.737s (+0.523s) Laps: 13

Q2 8th Best Lap Time: 1m 36.525s (+0.688s) Laps: 8

Q3 9th Best Lap Time: 1m 39.787s (+2.232s) Laps: 7

"Today was going well right up to Q3. This morning was good and that continued during the first two sessions this afternoon but it was a difficult last ten minutes. It was pretty strange but the car didn't work as well as the session before.

I think I was struggling with tyre temperatures and I just couldn't really get a clean lap. So that was a pity but we are still in good shape for tomorrow and we will do our best to come away with a strong result."


Pascal Vasselon - Senior General Manager Chassis

"Our weather forecast said it was very likely qualifying would take place in full wet conditions and so it proved. That meant we were fully prepared for this possibility and overall it went reasonably well.

The whole team did a fantastic job throughout qualifying without any mistakes to get both cars through to the top ten. Only two teams managed that so it's a very good result for us on top of a fine performance from both drivers. We are a little bit disappointed by the final ranking in Q3, but obviously as usual we will have to wait for tomorrow's pit stop laps to know more about today's performance.

All the tyres here have been on the hard side, including the full wet that we used today, so they didn't suffer in the conditions and lasted well. Now we will concentrate our efforts on tomorrow. The weather forecast remains uncertain and we should see a wide range of strategies so it is sure to be an eventful day."
