27-July: For the third time this season, Alex Yoong has failed to qualify. At Silverstone were he failed to qualify for the second time, team boss Paul Stoddart indicated that he'll review his position if he fails to qualify again.
Following the German GP qualifying, Paul Stoddart believes that Yoong's failure was due to him losing his confidence and said "At Silverstone we knew what it was, there was no decision to make and everything was fine. But it isn't fine today. He's lost his confidence. There's no reason for that today. He doesn't know why, we don't know why. Technically we can't find a reason. He just didn't do it. He just simply didn't do it."
Stoddart indicated that he could relegate Yoong to a test driver and said "If Alex were to say to me 'I can't find the reason but I'm struggling to qualify' then clearly we've got to make a decision and that decision could in the extreme be that for a couple of races we replace him and we cram in some testing."
Stoddart will be looking at his options over the 3 week break before the Hungarian GP and said "I owe it to Alex to sit down and talk to him and not make any decisions before I've talked to him because clearly something's not quite gelling there at the moment and I need to find the reasons.
We've got a three-week break, there's plenty of time to think about what we're going to do."

27-July: At the post Qualifying press conference for the German Grand Prix, Michael Schumacher talked about how his qualifying meant and described his Pole as a dream and hopes to win here and said "We did quite a good preparation this morning and everything seemed to be very good and then finally in qualifying we took some time to really get the lap time in and we did, on the last run. We had the chance to do another lap in the end but then I went into traffic. But all in all, that was my dream to have a pole position here in Hockenheim and hopefully a win as well. I'm sure the other two guys next to me will not agree but we will try and I think we have a good possibility from where we are now."
Michael admitted that running at home gives him a boost and said "That is a boost. You see, you feel the excitement in the faces of the fans. It is something very special and coming into the stadium and celebrate together with them particularly when I did the pole position but still wasn't sure if there was anyone able to go faster or not, so it was a bit of a mixed feeling to wave or not to wave, to say thank you or not, because it has happened that you feel secure and suddenly someone bumps your time so then you are rather stupid. So it was a good feeling and good to see the crowd here and the emotions they go through."
As for the race tomorrow, Michael is hoping for consistency and said "Basically to have a consistent race pace and we have worked on that, we have shown that we are reasonably good on that, so we hope it is the same tomorrow.
We haven't won together (with Ferrari) at all down here in Hockenheim and it would be nice if it works out tomorrow. But there is a long race to go, we'll try everything, we'll see what happens."
Michael doesn't expect to see so many slides and spins during the race and said "I guess in the race people will calm down a little bit, but it can happen that you go a little bit wide and go over the run-off and come back onto the circuit. The good thing about this circuit now and the future of development is that if you do have a little off then it doesn't cost you your race. You still may lose a position but you will be back in the race and then continue, which I think is much more fair and much more safe. We might see it, but not too much I think."

Ralf Schumacher was satisfied with second and so close to the Pole time and hopes to swap with Michael in the race and said "After the last few races I have had always a bit of problems and it was never really happening in qualifying. The whole weekend has been very good for me. I have been happy with the car, with the track, and it paid off in the qualifying. Certainly I would have liked to be on pole for the team, for myself, but it wasn't possible for today and Michael didn't let me so I hope to swap it around tomorrow."
Ralf is hoping that the Michelin tyres are better in race conditions this time and said "I think Michelin supported us with a very, very good and consistent race tyre, so I am looking forward to tomorrow."

Rubens Barrichello was satisfied with third and said "I was trying really hard for my last run and I just ran a little bit wide and lost time. The same happened on my third run. Everything was coming perfect and I lost in the penultimate corner. I just went a little bit wide over the kerb and lost three tenths. But after the shunt this morning I am quite happy with the way that the car has come out and I am feeling really confident for tomorrow."
Rubens is looking forward to the race and said "We have a perfect car and we're always trying to have a really good race for ourselves and for Ferrari so tomorrow it's in our hands to do a good job for everyone."
