Marc Gene':
"Although we did not work too much on the car set-up today, I believe we are moving in the right direction. Toward the end of the second session, when the track was not yet completely dry, I pushed harder to put in a better timed lap and suddenly I lost control of my car in a curve. I am disappointed to have lost twenty-five minutes that could be very helpful to the set-up. Basically I feel happy with my car’s behaviour and I am sure that tomorrow we can still improve."

Gaston Mazzacane:
"Unfortunately, during this morning’s free practice session I wasted almost thirty minutes in the garage to fix a minor problem to one of the rear shock absorbers. In the second session, on the wet track, I did not manage to achieve any good timed lap because I made a mistake under braking at the hairpin and, as a result I locked the wheels and finished out. It has been a difficult and disappointing day I did not exploit as much as I could because I completed a very poor number of timed laps."

The T-car (chassis 01) is prepared for Marc Gené.
