British GP: Qualifying notes - Red Bull

NEWS STORY

Mark Webber: I've always enjoyed driving here, but you still have to put it all together. You don't get these results without applying yourself. It was a very mixed session for all of us, even in the build up with yesterday's rain. It was important to make sure every lap counted, as you never knew if it was going to be the one that counted for your main grid position, so even in Q2 you had to make sure you weren't caught out. In the end I'm happy with the job we did; it's easy to slip up in conditions like that from a logistical point of view and also from the driver's perspective, so it was a good job by the team and we're in a good position for tomorrow's race.

Sebastian Vettel: I think it was a difficult session with the changing conditions. I think when it starts to rain here it can be on different parts of the circuit, so it's quite difficult to see where it's wet and where it's fine, so you rely on the out lap or the previous lap. If you go flat out and hit a damp area, it's very easy to go off track. So, I think it wasn't easy today, but in the end it was mostly dry. It's a shame we couldn't get the second run in Q3, I would have loved to have challenged Mark again, but he got a good lap. It was a very good result for us, especially with all the talk that was going on into this race, so it's good to see that we're still on top of our game and can produce quick lap times. Anything can happen tomorrow, I think this circuit is tough on tyres, so we will see what we get tomorrow.

Christian Horner: After so much off circuit focus, it was a relief to finally get into the grand prix weekend in very difficult conditions. Both drivers did a great job to navigate though Q1 and Q2 and the first run proved to be the crucial in Q3; it was nip and tuck between the drivers and Mark produced an excellent lap to claim his second pole and the team's ninth of the season. We can see that Ferrari is pretty close, but today was a huge performance for the team.

Cyril Dumont, Renault: So, first of all I'm really pleased for everyone in the factory for this result - it's very good for Red Bull and for Renault. I think the session was quite difficult with all the climatic changes, so it's great to be one and two again. I think engine-wise it was a difficult weekend also with all the changing technical directives that were issued. Even with the final rule clarification, we got this good result, so let's see tomorrow when we will aim to convert these positions into points.
