Free practice was straightforward for DHL Jordan Honda and the team was able to complete the day's programme with little disruption. Drivers Giancarlo Fisichella and Takuma Sato are optimistic that the EJ12 will be competitive in qualifying tomorrow.

GIANCARLO FISICHELLA

"We are still struggling a little bit with set-up and grip, but it doesn't look too bad. We have a few new things on the car and will have more power for qualifying so I'm a bit more optimistic than normal. If we do well, a top ten grid result is possible."

TAKUMA SATO

"We're in quite good shape today with no mechanical troubles at all. It was my first outing here in an F1 car and I found the circuit very smooth and good fun to drive, although on the approach to a couple of chicanes, visibility is a bit tricky. We had a good pace straight away and our tyres look quite competitive. I'm optimistic for tomorrow."

GARY ANDERSON, DIRECTOR OF RACE AND TEST ENGINEERING

"There were no major problems today other than a few little excursions across the gravel traps, which meant replacing some bits of the car. We got through our day's work and feel well-prepared for qualifying."


GIANCARLO FISICHELLA: 12th 1:15.422
CHASSIS NUMBER: 6
TAKUMA SATO: 15th 1:16.167
CHASSIS NUMBER: 4
