Belgian GP: Qualifying notes - Red Bull

NEWS STORY
06/09/2008

Mark Webber: We've got more pace here than in Valencia. It was a stress to get into Q3, it was very tight as usual and all the drivers were pretty evenly matched so you had to find that extra few tenths to get into the final group. We'll see how tomorrow goes with the strategy, we're in a reasonable position to mount an attack for some points. It's good to see Alonso and me up there today, it's encouraging for Renault and for our team, for everyone here and in Milton Keynes.

David Coulthard: I'm not so happy with that. Fourteenth doesn't look good, but it's so tight in the mid field and we're separated by such a small margin. Let's see what we can do tomorrow.

Christian Horner, Team Principal: That was a good qualifying session for Mark, which sensibly places us on the grid for tomorrow. We dropped a bit of time at the Bus Stop chicane, so we could have been even quicker. In such a tight qualifying session, David missed out by the smallest of margins. The field continues to be as competitive as ever.

Fabrice Lom, Renault, Principal Engineer, Track Support: It's a good result for Mark to finish in P7 on this very difficult track that demands a lot from the engine. It's good, especially after our difficult experiences in Valencia. For David, it will be a bit more complicated, fourteenth is not so high up and it's not easy to overtake on this track. But it's a difficult race for everyone here, so let's wait and see, especially as changing weather conditions may affect things. We are beginning a cycle of two very difficult races for the engine, so even after this one we will still have to cope with Monza.
