Monaco: Qualifying notes - WilliamsF1

NEWS STORY
27/05/2006

Sam Michael, Technical Director, WilliamsF1: "Mark did a fantastic job in qualifying and he will have a really strong race tomorrow. His last lap was almost two tenths faster before he had to back off to avoid Michael's parked car so he would have been on the front row. Obviously it's disappointing to have Nico in 10th position, he spent too much time in traffic. The car, tyre and engine performance is definitely strong here at Monaco. Our Bridgestone tyres are working well and we had no mechanical problems today."

Mark Webber: "Saturday has turned out to be a reasonable day for us. We qualified pretty well in 3rd position and I think we were maybe improving a little bit until we got the yellow flag due to Michael Schumacher's stoppage, which of course hurt everybody. Anyway, the crucial thing for us is the race and we want to get to the end and get some of the points that I think we deserve. It's been a strong effort from the team in the last few days. We now need to capitalise on this starting opportunity, at a track where qualifying is so important."

Nico Rosberg: "Q3 was not good for me today. I made it into the top ten and then traffic just prevented me from setting a faster lap. I was behind Coulthard when he was on a flying lap, but then he didn't let me by when I was on my flying lap, and basically spoilt my qualifying. It's a shame, because there was definitely more in the car today than a 10th place."

Chris Jilbert, Principal Engineer - Cosworth, F1 Race Engineering: "A fantastic qualifying result for Williams and Cosworth. It's superb to have a Cosworth-powered car start from the second row of the grid here in Monaco and it is a great reward for a lot of very hard work from all involved."
