Jordan Drivers Disappointed with Fourth Row Start

Saturday March 31st, 2001

Jarno Trulli at Interlagos, todayJordan's Jarno Trulli and Heinz-Harald Frentzen said they performed below their expectations in qualifying for the Brazilian Grand Prix as they ended seventh and eighth respectively.

Both drivers had performed well in Friday's free practice, but failed to make dramatic improvements for the qualifying sessions as they ended on the fourth row of the grid.

"It was very hard to make that step from where we are to have qualified in the top six," said Frentzen. "I think Jarno and I did a good job during qualifying, trying to squeeze every last bit out of the cars."

Frentzen's team-mate Trulli had suffered an engine misfire in the morning session which lost him important set-up time, and he was disheartened not to return to the performance levels seen on Friday.

"We did our best, but were not able to get as much out of the car as we hoped," said a disappointed Trulli. "We expected a bit more."
