Jean Alesi:

The accident this morning was my fault. I just went into the corner too fast, and once I had lost control of the car there was nothing more I could do to get it back. I haven't seen the television yet, but I gather it was quite spectacular. I feel a bit stiff, but otherwise I am okay. Prior to the shunt the car felt okay, and though the lap times in general are slower than they were during testing last week, that's mainly because the circuit itself was slower today.

Pedro Diniz:

I lost half the running today because this morning my car lost fuel pressure during my first lap out of the pits. The track was a bit faster then because the temperature was lower, so this afternoon we only used one set of tyres and concentrated on doing some set-up work for the race. The balance wasn't too great and there is more work to do there, but the track also seemed very slippery all day.

Peter Sauber:

On the one hand practice for us concerned Jean's heavy accident, from which fortunately he escaped without harm. On the other hand we had a technical problem on Pedro's car early on, and we are still looking for the correct set-up for both cars.

Weather:

Sunny.
