17-Aug: At the post Qualifying press conference for the Hungarian Grand Prix, Rubens Barrichello indicated that he was pleased to have grabbed Pole and said "Since this morning the first run wasn't great and then we improved the car a lot and we worked very well on the car so I'm pleased. It's just one line that everyone is following and to get off-line a little bit is most definitely a spin so tomorrow is going to be a difficult race."
Rubens talked about his runs and particularly the first which he had to abort when Jenson Button spun in front of him and said "I lost my first run to the spin. It was actually very close but I decided to back off because I saw the smoke. I saw two cars going to the right and I had the feeling that they were there to let me by and all of a sudden I saw this smoke and I braked and I just saw Button spinning out. Then on the second run I didn't change the car, I went for it, the third run I went very early with a small change but I didn't like it so I went back to the set-up of the second run and I tried it again."
Rubens is confident of having a good start tomorrow as he is on the clean side of the track and said "I'm looking forward to it because starting from pole position I have the best chance as the track is cleaner on that side, so just being positive and trying to win."

Michael Schumacher admitted that Rubens did a better job in qualifying than him and said "He (Rubens) was doing a good job and I couldn't match it."
Michael indicated that he almost lost it on his third run and that was enough for him not to get pole and said "I had one little wobble where I lost a little bit of time, but I think it was mainly in turn 12, a little bit in the last corner but more in turn 12. It is very tight and that is enough to not catch him (Rubens).
Michael hopes to retain second place at the start as he will be starting from the dirty side of the track and said "It certainly doesn't help, so we have to find out. The point is that we have to look to not drop back any position that is the target. You can't expect from the dirty position to make a position. That is probably unrealistic."

Ralf Schumacher described the weekend so far as 'very very difficult' and said "Well, we've had a very, very difficult weekend so far, a lot of ups and downs, and since we couldn't find a way round we tried something very dramatic on our car, totally the opposite to what we were working on, and it has worked out. I must say the team did a brilliant job in achieving this."
Ralf indicated how much he had to change his car during qualifying and said "We tried various things. I have never had a qualifying session where we have tried so many things to be honest, but for most of us it seemed to be difficult in the later part of the session to improve the lap times, so it was for me. I had an off and we changed in the wrong direction and in the last run it was okay but still not good enough to improve my time."
