Webber Targets Points Finish

Mark Webber is looking to score some points in tomorrow's Belgian Grand Prix after qualifying in the top ten today

The Williams driver, who has failed to score any points in the last two races, will start tomorrow's Grand Prix from ninth position.

Webber said he was pleased with his effort despite an error when going into the Bus Stop chicane.

"I am reasonably happy with my qualifying today, even if I lost a bit of time in the last sector, at the Bus Stop corner," said Webber. "We have a good set-up for tomorrow, but obviously it's a bit of a lottery here, as it all depends on the weather condition.

"It's much more penalising to have a rain set-up on a dry track than the other way around and this track is definitely one of the most challenging for the engineers. We hope we'll manage to score some points tomorrow, as we did last week in Monza."

Webber's teammate Antonio Pizzonia, replacing Nick Heidfeld for the second race in a row, was not so happy with his performance after struggling for grip during his flying lap.

The Brazilian, who celebrates his 25th birthday tomorrow, finished down in 15th place.

"Qualifying went not so well for me," said Pizzonia. "I am quite surprised with the lack of grip I had. After this morning's free practice we made some changes to the car but they shouldn't have affected the balance of the car that much.

"It was hard for me last week in Monza, to get used to everything so quickly, but I am in a better situation now, with some mileage under my belt already. Anything can happen during the race here in Spa, with such a crazy weather. It would be nice to collect some points tomorrow as a gift for my birthday."
