Toyota driver Jarno Trulli was delighted with his performance in qualifying for the Belgian Grand Prix .
The Italian driver, who started from pole position at Spa last year with Renault, completed another impressive qualifying performance by setting the fourth quickest time of the day.
Trulli, however, will start from third place after Renault's Giancarlo Fisichella gets a penalty for having changed his engine prior to the session.
"I honestly think that was a great lap," said Trulli. "There were a few spots of rain during my first sector so I couldn't quite push as hard as I would have liked. But in general the car felt very well balanced so it was possible to push right to the limit, and that's what I did.
"Every sector of this lap is difficult but it felt quick, so I'm happy with where we've ended up. We've spent the weekend working to adjust the car for the tyres. We hope we've made a good choice and it means we are feeling confident about the race whatever the conditions.
"We're expecting a wet race so the spray could make life difficult but we all just have to get used to it and try our best."
Trulli outpaced his teammate Ralf Schumacher once more, the German having to settle for the sixth fastest time of the day.
The German admitted he was not completely pleased with his car's handling but was nonetheless pleased to be starting from fifth position.
"That was a reasonable qualifying lap given that I've found the car slightly difficult to drive this weekend," said Schumacher. "We went backwards and forwards with the tyre choice all morning and we changed the tyres just before the session, so that made things difficult. But it was a clean lap and both Jarno and I are happy to be starting so high up the grid tomorrow.
"There were a couple of spots of rain on my lap but that had no effect on the time. There could obviously be a lot more rain in the race so that could make things harder but hopefully being quite near the front of the grid there will not be quite so much spray.
"We'll be pushing hard for more points to close the gap on Ferrari."
