Jean Todt:
"This Friday was slightly different to usual in that we ran in the dry for the first hour and then in the wet for the start of the second part of the session. This change in conditions gave us the possibility to gather useful information, given that the weather forecast predicts changeable weather for the next two days. Our cars are going well and we are satisfied with what we have achieved today. We think that we can fight for front row positions tomorrow."

Michael Schumacher:
"I did a lot of laps and I am happy with the work we have done today and with the balance of the car. It works well in both the wet and the dry, although we did not get enough running in the wet to finalise a wet weather setting. It's very difficult to find the right compromise to suit both the straights and the motodrom section. Our engine specification is the same as the one we used in the last race. I think qualifying will be very close and now I am looking forward to going up against our usual rivals for the front row."

Rubens Barrichello:
"The day got off to a very good start. Then, when it began to rain I was unable to continue improving the set-up, but at least we picked up some useful data for wet conditions. I am sure our car is well suited to this track which means we will be in a strong position tomorrow in qualifying and on Sunday in the race. The track is very dirty and my visor is covered in debris, but despite this we are going much quicker than last year."
