MARC GENE'
Chassis 03
21st 12 laps
time: 1:28.253
"It has been a tough session for everybody due to the so changeable weather conditions. We only could look at the sky and save our laps for the end. This was the right strategy, indeed. My last timed lap was pretty good, however considering that I had not run much on the dry track and that my time is only 2,5" slower than the pole, I feel satisfied. It is disappointing to have qualified in the last position but I feel happy with my today's performance."

GASTON MAZZACANE
Chassis 02
22nd 12 laps
time: 1:29.174
"Notwithstanding my grid position, I feel fairly satisfied also considering that the changeable track conditions and my lack of experience didn't help me at all. During the session we have concentrated on the set up work which changed over the morning. I believe we did a good job because my car felt much better with respect to the few laps I put in yesterday on the dried track. We took to track at the last moment to set the time but unfortunately when I was putting in my last fast lap I have encountered too many cars on the track thus losing 6 tenths in the third sector."

GIAN CARLO MINARDI:
"Despite our position we are pretty satisfied because today's has been a good performance if we consider that we are only 2,5" slower than the pole. Furthermore, it has been one of the best qualifying sessions for us on a circuit where we didn't expect to perform well. The disappointment to be classified last is, therefore, a bit softened."

The T-car (chassis 01) for tomorrow's race is prepared for Marc Gené.
