27-Apr: Eddie Irvine who was surprised by qualifying as high as 15 has been sent to the back of the grid due to a fuel irregularity. 
An FIA statement read "After having examined the results of this further analysis, the stewards decided to delete all qualifying times of the driver's qualifying time scrapped due to fuel irregularity."
It is believed that Jaguar will appeal the decision however Eddie Irvine wasn't too concerned and said "To be honest it doesn't make much difference given where we were on the grid. But at least this way I might get to overtake some cars tomorrow."

27-Apr: At the post Qualifying press conference for the Spanish Grand Prix, Michael Schumacher admitted that on his third ran which got him pole he modified the car to closer to Rubens and said "We certainly have done modifications to the car. We went a little bit closer to what Rubens was doing. He seemed to have the better solution and I got into the run very well, whereas in the first two runs I did two mistakes on each, which cost me a bit of time, naturally. But sometimes you have to be out at the right moment with the wind - and the wind was gusting around a bit."
Michael also indicated that he enjoyed the fight with his team-mate who pushed him today and said "I have enjoyed it as well in the past and especially as you have seen in the first two runs he, sort of, was going faster and you have to look around on how to improve and that is what is the business. I like the challenge and when he is putting in quicker sectors, quicker corners, and it is obviously good for me to watch that and see where I have to improve and where I can improve. Sometimes you think you have done it right and you prove it is not right so I quite enjoy it"

Rubens Barrichello lost out on pole on the final run just as at the last race in Imola. While he wishes to be on Pole, he enjoyed the fight too and said "Obviously, again, just like the last time, I wish I could have been on pole but it's like Michael said, it's been a fair fight, it's wonderful just to push each other. The car became a little bit better towards the end in terms of set-up and everything, but on the last run he was better on his lap."
Rubens was confident with the car and is confident that he'll win more pole positions this year and said "I am generally confident every time I am out, to be honest with you. I think the car is running the way I like it is just Michael, we know how fast he is, but I am just there pushing and I will definitely get more pole positions this year."

Ralf Schumacher admitted that they didn't expect to be third and said "The team did a great job overnight. They changed a lot of things on the car, which seemed to be improving the whole situation and that's the reason why we are third here. We didn't expect it yesterday to be honest, but it worked out."
Contrary to the belief that Michelin tyres are struggling here, Ralf believes they are good and said "I'm certainly pretty happy with the tyre we have and I have no doubt that it should be the reason why we are in a good shape for tomorrow. I'm sure we have a good tyre."
However he doesn't have a lot of hope of being able to challenge the Ferraris and said "I don't want to be too optimistic about it, let's see how it goes. Ferrari are nearly a second quicker so there is really not a lot of hope for tomorrow. The best we can do is stay where we are, have a good strategy, and then go home with points from here. That is all we can do for the moment."
