Korea Saturday quotes: Virgin

Timo Glock - 20th: "Today was a pretty good qualifying session for me. We made the right change from this morning's free practice to qualifying and I had a very good first run. The second one was good as well and I was able to get everything possible out of the car. I couldn't do any more so I am happy with the result and due to Petrov's penalty we move over to the clean side of the track, which will help us at the race start tomorrow. It should be an interesting race and I'm looking forward to it."

Korea Saturday quotes: Virgin

Lucas di Grassi - 22nd: "It was not a very good qualifying for me today. I did not manage to properly use my second set of qualifying Option tyres as in my two timed laps I got traffic and then I made a mistake, so for sure there is more to come. This is a track that improves all the time - and very quickly - and you need to be 'on it' the whole time. I'm looking forward to tomorrow and our first Korean Grand Prix. In the first few corners of the track there are a lot of overtaking opportunities, so it should be an interesting start. The race is also very long and a lot of things can happen, so we will see what happens as it unfolds."

John Booth, Team Principal: "A strong qualifying session for Timo today, who was unlucky to be pipped at the very end of the session for the new teams' pole, but at least he will start from the clean side of the track following Petrov's penalty. Lucas wasn't able to get the best out of the car but we are sure there is more to come from him in the race tomorrow. We are still experiencing quite a lot of graining on the tyres, which will make the choice for tomorrow interesting, and there is also the possibility of rain. The drivers report that the track modifications made overnight have been successful, so all credit to the circuit for their hard work and we are looking forward to the inaugural Korean Grand Prix tomorrow."
