LUCA BADOER Chassis 01 19th 11 laps time: 1:22,631 "This morning, during the free practice, I had a very good feeling with my car so I would prefer a dry qualifying session in order to continue the today's work which was getting on well, already. I believe that under normal track conditions it would have been certainly better for us. Actually the conditions were so changeable and confusing that we hardly took advantage of this session."

MARC GENE' Chassis 04 20th 12 laps time: 1:22,760 "I feel fairly satisfied. The Team did a good job today and the strategy was the right one. The car was okay even on the first run when the track was very wet. In the end as the track was getting drier, I managed to score a good lap time, although not perfect."

CESARE FIORIO - direttore sportivo: "Over these two days we have been in the position to confirm the competitiveness of both cars which showed the recent improvements. At the beginning, as the weather conditions were changeable and uncertain, we did an excellent performance during the qualifying session; once the weather was back to the normality we dropped back to our usual positions, though always in front of our direct rivals. We shall see tomorrow during the race."
