Sauber duo Esteban Gutierrez and Adrian Sutil expressed their disappointment following a poor showing during qualifying for the Monaco Grand Prix.

Neither Sauber driver was able to progress through to Q2, with Gutierrez in 17th narrowly eclipsing Sutil.

"It was not a positive qualifying for the team, so we cannot be happy with today’s outcome," said Gutierrez.

"We are on the edge of getting into Q2, so every minor incident on track is affecting us massively. Today it was a big challenge to find a clean lap. Bringing the tyres up to temperature took a few laps, which was not ideal either. We need to analyse the data and see what exactly happened. Regarding the race, we all know that it is hard to overtake in Monaco."

Sutil reckons that the timing of yellow flags cost him a chance at progression.

"It was a disappointing qualifying," he said.

"The first run was quite good. We just had bad luck with the two yellow flags at the end of the first qualifying session. It is a shame, but that can happen in Monaco. We were not able to show what could have been possible."
