Comments after qualifying at Sakhir

24/11/2005 - Bahrain
Andrea Bertolini: «We had a great battle with Bouchut for pole during qualifying.»

Andrea Bertolini (2): «Naturally I am disappointed not to have claimed it but this was not our main aim. We only wanted to place our MC12 as high up the grid as we could. It will be a close race but having our team mates covering our backs is comforting. We are focused and will do all we can to bring home the Drivers' title».

Jamie Davies (2):
«The race was a tough one, above all at the beginning as I didn't want to hold up any of the title chasers. I tried to pressure Bouchet whenever I had a free track ahead of me. The car vibrated a bit during the second stint and so the team advised me not to push too hard».
