Italian GP: Red Bull qualifying quotes

Sebastian Vettel - 1st: "We didn't expect to be so strong here, with both cars on the front row. It's due to hard work from everyone in the team working long hours; we've had years where we've had a good car, but not a car that's competitive in low down force trim, so in that regard we did our homework. This circuit has been a bit up and down for us, but this year it's surely been more up so far! The car feels great, but let's see what we can do tomorrow; we don't get any points from today."

Mark Webber - 2nd: "After yesterday we thought we could challenge for the front row, but you never know and as we saw in Belgium and today, the grid can sometimes get a bit mixed up. But overall we stayed strong and have to focus on ourselves. The guys did a very good job; it's not an easy track to pull everything together over one lap. The result is the maximum for the team and it was pretty much the maximum for me today; Seb has always been very strong here and he's a tough nut to crack at this venue. I hope to have a strong race from there tomorrow."

Christian Horner: "A fantastic team performance to get our 50th and Sebastian's 40th pole position here in Monza. We've had a strong car all weekend, but it's a track that hasn't historically been our strongest, so it's the best possible place to be starting tomorrow's race from to try and convert today's result in to a good points haul. The weather could be a factor tomorrow and there's still a long way to go, but a really satisfying day today."

(Renault) Thierry Salvi: "We've looked strong all weekend, but you never take anything for granted here: delivering strong top-end power without compromising stability for the chicanes sees you making decisions on a knife-edge. We've worked to consolidate the inherent speed in the car and it seemed to continue to come our way today. Seb and Mark both did a great job to lock out the front row, which we can hopefully convert into the same result tomorrow."
