Respectable qualifying from Red Bull

By on

The Red Bull Racing team can be quite satisfied with their qualifying session. In a very tight field, Australian Mark Webber will start from the 8th place on the grid. Webber's Scottish team mate David Coulthard will start from 13th position.

Mark Webber, Position 8th: "That was a pretty good qualifying session, quite straightforward. It would have been nice to have had a bit more pace in Q3, but Q2 and Q1 went well for us. I'm disappointed I'm on the wrong side of the grid, an odd number is always better, but we definitely have a chance to get something from where we are, so we'll see how we go tomorrow."

David Coulthard, Position 13th: "I was losing a little bit of time in each of the sectors and I couldn't deliver that last little bit of lap time because I was bringing the mid-corner speed too low. It's tough from thirteenth for sure, but the Hungarian race can be unpredictable, so let's see."

Christian Horner, Team Principal: "A respectable qualifying from Mark in a very tight field. We're close to our nearest rivals in Renault and Toyota, which should make for an interesting race tomorrow. David isn't far off the back of that group, he unfortunately didn't have a good second run in Q2, but we'll be fighting hard tomorrow."

Benteyn Pierre-Emeric, Renault, M Webber Engine Engineer, Track Support: "Engine wise, we have been completely clear all weekend, which has allowed us to concentrate on the performance, of both the car and the engine. We would have preferred to have seen both cars appearing in Q3, but we are sure David will be strong tomorrow. Mark has a good chance for a good race."
