Monaco Saturday quotes: Red Bull

Mark Webber - 1st: "It's a sensational feeling to be on pole in Monaco. It's a vicious venue in terms of punishment for mistakes. It felt like I found another gear in terms of confidence in the car today, I knew how important it was to nail a good lap because of the competition. The last thing I wanted was to be sitting on row three or four of the grid. When you're concentrating that hard and you're putting everything on the edge like that your heart rate goes so high! Then you have that horrible wait when everyone else is finishing their laps and you can't do any more. It's a special day. I know every team works hard, but our guys were here at 5am this morning to work on some things, so this pole is a credit to them. I hope we can convert it to a good finish tomorrow."

Sebastian Vettel - 3rd: "Even though there were only ten cars on track I got a little bit of traffic, which was quite a surprise. It wasn't ideal to use the tyres properly, they came in nicely but when there was the peak I couldn't use it. I got space in the end, but obviously the lap time wasn't enough. All in all, it's a good result for the team, congratulations to them and also to Renault; it's great for them to have the top three cars on the grid. I'm looking forward to tomorrow, it's a long race and a lot of things can happen."

Christian Horner: "A great team result. Six out of six poles is quite an achievement and they're evenly distributed between the drivers. Mark found a good rhythm and a good gap on track to set a time that was remarkably quick. Sebastian was only a tenth off a front row lock out, but third on the grid is a good place to be starting here. It's important that we convert today's result into a good points haul tomorrow. It's testimony to the hard work that's going on from the whole team to achieve this performance and I'd also like to congratulate Renault on a one-two-three."

(Renault) Fabrice Lom: "A superb result. A sixth pole position is very good, especially at Monaco, which is a special venue. We know that here power is nothing but that drivability and all the other engine qualities are important. We have three Renaults in the top three starting places and are very proud of all the work that's been done at the factory and the track to improve the drivability and the efficiency of our engine. We can see it works for both teams, Red Bull and Renault. Congratulations to Kubica for his good lap and let's hope we get a perfect result tomorrow."
