Mark Webber was left lamenting the early end to qualifying in Singapore, although the Red Bull driver admitted the result could have been worse.
The session came to an early finish after Rubens Barrichello crashed his Brawn car against the wall with 26 seconds left. The red flag that followed meant several drivers were unable to complete their second run, and Webber was among them. But the Australian was nonetheless pleased to have finished in fourth position.
"You never think your first run is going to be for the grid, so I think everyone always leaves a little bit of a margin," said Webber. "I was on scrubbed tires and was banking on a big lap in my second run. I'm not sure who was on new tires, but we're fourth so let's see – it could have been a lot worse.
"My guys have been absolute superstars this weekend, putting the car back together after yesterday, in very tough working conditions for them here. I have a lot of motivation to reward them tomorrow."
