"Good to get both cars in Q3 for the final time this year. It was a fun session. I had a very strong lap in Q2. Then Q3 started very well and I got a good first run, but I'm not too sure where I lost the time on my second run, because I lost a bit of feeling for the tyres."

Third Practice Session: Best lap 1.12.389, pos.5th, 19 laps
Qualifying Session: Best lap 1.13.082, pos.7th

Sebastien Bourdais (STR3-04)

"Naturally, you want to end the season on a high note and this result is super, to be in Q3 again for the sixth time this season. Things have been getting better over the past few races and this performance today confirms that. My lap was probably the best Q3 lap I've done this year, so I am very happy. My first run in Q1 was a disaster and on the second one I caught a kerb, so I was really worried it was all over. Then in Q2 I just managed to do a good enough lap to make it into the top ten. Tomorrow, there's a strong chance of rain and I think our strategy is flexible enough to deal with that."

Third Practice Session: Best lap 1.12.426, pos.7th, 18 laps
Qualifying Session: Best lap 1.14.105 Pos.9th

Giorgio Ascanelli: "Two cars in Q3 again which is excellent. Both drivers did a good job and the car, while not perfect is in reasonable shape. Obviously, we are on two very different strategies to cover all the options for tomorrow, because of the uncertainty concerning the weather. Therefore it's equally obvious that the car on the fastest strategy is ahead of the other one. Definitely a very good job from the whole team."
