‘No excuse’ for worst qualifying – Haug

Sat, 7 October 2006, 01:50

Mercedes’ Norbert Haug said there was ‘no excuse’ to offer after neither McLaren at Suzuka made it into the top ten shootout for the first time in 2006.

”Perhaps we made the wrong (Michelin) tyre choice,” the German told RTL television in Germany.

Haug also described as ‘unfair’ any suggestion that Kimi Raikkonen has lost motivation after announcing his switch to Ferrari for the 2007 season.

”(And) he has a slight cold, but that is also not the reason (why McLaren struggled),” Mercedes’ competition director said of the Finn.
