British GP qualifying quotes: Caterham

Charles Pic - 19th: "The final lap in quali is one of my best laps of the year so far so I'm very pleased with how today's gone. We made some good progress in FP3 with the balance and that carried over to qualifying, and breaking into the 1.33s and finishing ahead of the Marussias was about as much as we aimed for today, so it's gone to plan

British GP qualifying quotes: Caterham

"It changes from race to race but it does look like we have a small advantage over our nearest rivals this weekend, but having seen good race pace all year I'd like to think we'll be fighting with a couple of cars ahead as well in the race tomorrow. We've been close to the Williams cars this year in a few races so with a good start, decent deg levels and no reliability issues tomorrow could be a good day."

Giedo van der Garde - 21st: "It's been an interesting day as we ran a different plan to the normal FP3 and then did just the one run in quali. It's finally dry so we used some of FP3 for aero evaluation and then switched to race prep, bearing in mind the penalty from the last race which meant we knew pretty much where we'd end up in quali. We worked a lot on managing the tyre degradation, not really looking at quali at all but we still ended up beating one of the Marussia cars in quali which was a bonus, but really today's all been about getting ready for Sunday. I think we're in pretty good shape now and after the work we did today the degradation levels look manageable, even with the warmer track conditions we had today and which it looks like we'll have tomorrow, and we have a good setup for the race so let's see what happens."
