Spanish Grand Prix Barcelona, Friday 8th May The Ferrari F 300 of Eddie Irvine (1m 23.421s, 24 laps) and Michael Schumacher (1m 23.468s, 20 laps) are fourth and fifth quickest at the end of today's practice for the Spanish Grand Prix. Jean Todt "In the first hour of free practice Michael's car had a leak from the hydraulic system, which was repaired. Work centred mainly on the set-up of the two cars. The changes we made were non entirely satisfactory and tomorrow we must improve." Eddie Irvine

"This was non a very positive day. I had too much of everything! Too much overseer, understeer and brake problems. This is the worst I have known the car this year and I do not believe my position reflects the true order of performance. After the testing we did last week I expected these problems. We need the wind to change direction as this affects the handling of the car. The new rear bodywork does not make a difference on the stopwatch, but it does make the car less nervous to drive. As for the tyre choice, we can pick either reliability or speed." Michael Schumacher "The car is pretty much the same as it was here during the test, so our performance is more or less what we had expected. At the end of the session I could not go quicker as there was a lot of traffic and cars going off the track, which made me slow down. Tomorrow I think that third place is the best I can hope to do, unless something unexpected happens. My best wishes to all mothers for Mothers Day this Sunday!"
