Coulthard: "Its [the track] a bit like Melbourne"
Hamilton: "Reminds me of Albert Park"
JYS: "Its more like Spa than Monte Carlo, its not as glamourous as they suggested and the sky is full of cranes, but its good".

Qualifying:

The ambient temperature is around 20C and there has been a torrential rainstorm overnight, so the rubber laid down on Friday has been washed away. According to Martin Whitmarsh there is a shower heading towards Valencia from the South East so many drivers may put in a banker lap at the start of the session. At the moment it is cloudy.

i think Toro Rosso will be back for a surprise, they seem to go very well, even if they run on low fuel now, as I expect
