Spanish GP Race notes - Sauber

NEWS STORY
08/05/2005

Sauber driver Felipe Massa was classified 11th in today's Spanish Grand Prix in Barcelona. Unfortunately, Jacques Villeneuve had to retire on lap 52 and was not classified.

Jacques Villeneuve: "Quite early on my engine began losing water and as it steadily got hotter I began losing power. The biggest problem was that I started with a lot of fuel intending to run longer, but just as I got to the point where my fuel load had gone down and I should have been able to start lapping quickly I got stuck in traffic, so we were unable to maximise our strategy. In the end the engine failed because of the water loss."

Felipe Massa: "I think I drove a good race, but the pace was just too strong for us today. Everybody who finished in front of us was quicker. As for the problem at the end, I felt the left rear tyre deflate as I came through the last corner, so that was it. We discovered afterwards that the wheel rim had cracked, which let the air leak out."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal): "After our strong showing in Imola we are obviously disappointed as we were expecting more here. But we look forward to the next race."
