28-Sep: At the post Qualifying press conference for the United States GP, Michael Schumacher was pleased with his performance during the session and said "Honestly, we have seen big margins on the Friday and Saturday mornings and we still have been losing out in qualifying. I think it was Silverstone, for example, and, therefore, it's always a surprise what is actually going to happen in qualifying, although you seem to be up front for the free practice sessions. But today was a good one for us. I mean, although I had to back off for yellow flags in the second sector, I still managed to do basically my best lap time. I didn't manage to have the best sector in that lap time, but still it was good enough, and that's obviously ideal."
He is hoping to be allowed to race with Rubens tomorrow and said "Basically we have a free situation. And as Jean mentioned in one of the press conferences, as you said, first of all, I have to win it. Rubens will make that very difficult for me, and so will the other guys. But if I have the opportunity, I can do so and that means automatically second position is secured for him. But it's going to be an entertaining afternoon tomorrow."
As for the first corner following the start of the race, Michael wasn't too concerned and said "I think it's much easier than what we have seen in Monza because Monza is much tighter and a lot higher speed you arrive with and so on. I don't expect a big problem there, plus you have a very wide area you can use if you, for whatever reason, have to escape a problem in front of you. So I don't expect a big problem there."

Rubens Barrichello was satisfied with second given the time lost yesterday and said "Well, obviously I didn't have any run yesterday. The car, I just found out this morning how it was. Obviously it's a good car, it doesn't need a hell of a lot to be going fast. But when you get to a certain point, it's quite difficult, especially this track to be able to fine tune here and there. That's where I found the four runs I had, it was, you know, I improve it, you know, sector one and then go worse in sector two. I never really could put all the sectors together."
Rubens is looking forward to the race and said "Looking for what has happened yesterday and the certain laps that I did today, I'm fairly happy and quite a bit excited for tomorrow because it's a good position. We both can have good races and it's fairly good."

David Coulthard was happy with his best qualifying position since Monaco this year and said "Obviously the best qualifying I've had since Monaco, so I'm very happy with that. It's quite difficult to get a consistent lap here because of the nature of the track. I knew there was a quicker time in the car and it was just a question of trying to keep it all together. I actually lost a tenth in that last sector, so it made it closer than it otherwise might have been."
As for his thoughts on the race, David said "The qualifying position would indicate that it's not too bad. Obviously, there's still quite a gap to Ferrari. It's quite a short lap here. And if they're able to maintain that pace in race trim, then obviously you don't have a chance. Anything can happen in the races, you know. Qualifying has been more set this year and the race has shown up different performances, depending on how the tires are working. Obviously, it really depends on what the Michelin-Bridgestone split is like. Normally our race performance has been reasonably strong as well. So I'm feeling good for tomorrow."
