Sebastien Buemi (STR4-03)

"I am happy that we seemed quite competitive in the afternoon, after the mechanics did a very good job to rebuild the car after my accident this morning. I came up fast behind Liuzzi, who was going slowly on the racing line and in trying to avoid him, I went over the kerb, lost control and spun. I think we showed good speed, even though this is my first time driving this circuit. Now we have a solid basis on which to improve tomorrow, after studying all the data. Today's session shows that our pace in Japan was not just a one-off. So, I am quite confident for the rest of the weekend."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.13.503, pos.13th, 24 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.12.357, pos.2nd, 45 laps

Jaime Alguersuari (STR4-01)

"I enjoyed my first day at this circuit, which has a nice mix of high speed and slower corners that make it fun to drive and overall, practice went quite well, even though it was tricky when the track was a bit damp. I am still learning and getting up to speed. There is still room to improve the car set-up, especially on the softer tyre, but it's already pretty good."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.14.040, pos.19th, 38 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.13.041, pos.19th, 40 laps
