As good as it gets, says Jaguar chief

Jaguar Racing's head of vehicle performance, Mark Gillan, says that the team's qualifying performance today (Saturday) for the French Grand Prix was the maximum possible in the circumstances

Mark Webber will start ninth and Antonio Pizzonia 11th after a troublefree session which has given the Milton Keynes-based outfit hope of adding to its points tally in tomorrow's race.

"Both drivers did a good job in qualifying and given that we are sitting behind the top four teams, there isn't much more we could have done at this stage in our development," said Gillan. "Assuming there are no wild surprises tomorrow, our strategy should help us scrap for points."

Webber said: "I felt I could have squeezed an extra couple of tenths out of the car. The top four teams are doing a great job and we need more time to develop and attack them - not something we can achieve overnight."

Pizzonia added: "That was a good lap and the best I could have got from the car. A lot obviously depends on what happens up front but we are well prepared and that's the best we can hope for."
