Despite coaching from the team, our American driver had not quite got the idea of what the World Cup was all about.

Tonio Liuzzi:

"Quite a good day, but we still have some work to do on the handling of the car for tomorrow's qualifying, as we seemed to struggle a bit when running on new tyres. As for race pace it's not too bad and we still have tomorrow morning to try and improve."

Scott Speed:

"From what we have seen today and looking at the times, it's clear we are going to struggle a bit this weekend. The car is working well, it's got good balance but we just don't have the power down the straightaways. Although it's much hotter than we expected, there are no problems on the tyre front."

"My spin? For some reason, I had a big problem with stability on rear brakes. I hit the brakes and suddenly I was facing the wrong way. So we still need to improve our rear end stability a bit."

Neel Jani:

"It's a very special weekend for me as I'm driving in both F1 and GP2. In the morning session, everything went well and we seemed to have reasonable pace, even on old tyres. This afternoon, I was doing a long run and at one point I took a trip through the gravel, but we still got the tyre comparison done and got some useful data."
