Between them, David Coulthard, Christian Klien and Scott Speed completed 110 laps in today's free practices. Driving aboard the team's third car, GP2 driver Scott Speed used the sessions to familiarise himself with his car's set-up, while gaining valuable test data for the team. Unfortunately, he ran wide on a corner and spun during the second practice, which bought his session to a premature end.

David Coulthard:

"Similarly to Friday in Nurburgring, the pace of the car hasn't been so good today and we need to try and understand which areas to target in order to improve performance. We'll see where we are tomorrow but, at the moment, we're quite a distance from the front-runners."

Christian Klien:

"Overall, that was not so good. We did three long runs to compare the tyres and collected some useful data, which will help us decide which to use tomorrow. However, we're struggling for speed a little on this circuit, especially on the long straights. I think we need to find something extra if we're to do well here."

Scott Speed:

"The car is comfortable to drive and I was out there trying to do the best job I could, to enable the team to get the data they needed. I was concentrating on trying to give the team some good feedback from the laps I completed. It was a shame I went off before the end of the session. Before that, the balance of the car had felt good and the condition of the track was improving with every lap."
