Brazilian GP qualifying reactions: Williams F1

Williams F1 responds to qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix at Interlagos, the penultimate round in the 2009 FIA F1 World Championship.

Nico Rosberg – 7th:

“It was good to see that we were fastest on the wets throughout qualifying. Unfortunately, however, I think we just weren't quick enough on the intermediates. We weren't able to warm up the front tyres enough so they didn't work properly which ultimately hurt our pace. Still, 7th is a position from which we can hope for a strong race tomorrow.”


Kazuki Nakajima – 9th:

“It was a difficult qualifying session with a long time between red flags and each round. It would probably have been better if it had continued raining because the car was very competitive in the wet, but we still managed to get a good position. It's the first time I've been in the top ten since Hungary so I'm looking forward to a good race tomorrow.”


Rod Nelson - chief operations engineer (Williams F1):

“It was a very busy and long qualifying today because of the weather. Both drivers were happy with the car in the wet, and we moved them onto inters at the right time in Q2. Its good to have both drivers in the top ten again, but I think we could have done a little better. It will be an interesting race tomorrow and we should do well.”
