At the post Qualifying press conference for the Austrian GP, Rubens Barrichello
indicated that he felt lucky to have escaped two shunts during the session
when he went off avoiding a crash and said "Luckily, I was always out at
the right time. I had two escapes actually. The first time I had to avoid the
oil so I went out and on my last run, my heart rate may have been much higher
than 200 at that time because I saw the Toyota coming back on me and I saw a
crash coming, a big one. Luckily I was a lot quicker so I could get by but it
was just too much traffic and I was lucky to have a good run."
Ralf Schumacher was pleasantly surprised to have
managed to split the 2 Ferraris and said "We are definitely surprised at
being in between them. The gap seemed to be a lot bigger than it appears to
be. I certainly don't know what Michael's reason was, but that gave me a
chance to come in between the two of them. I did two laps very similar, the
car was brilliant so thanks to the team and thanks to Michelin."
Michael Schumacher was surprised by the lack of pace
and couldn't figure out what went wrong and said "It was just not
performing, just not fast enough. I don't know yet, there wasn't anything
specifically wrong it was just not there, at least not in one part of the
circuit. But then you honestly have to say that Rubens did a very good job on
the other side, so that moves it quite far apart."
