DHL Jordan Honda carried out a straightforward Free Practice, with both drivers enjoying a trouble-free day. Giancarlo Fisichella and Takuma Sato, who finished fifth and sixth quickest, are feeling positive about the car's handling and their competitive lap times.

GIANCARLO FISICHELLA

"It's been a good day. The car looks alright with good balance on used and new tyres. Today on my best lap I had a little graining with the front tyres and I made a mistake in the last three sectors. But overall it's looking encouraging and I'm pleased to say I'm confident that we could be on the front three or four rows tomorrow."

TAKUMA SATO

"I'm very pleased today as we had no mechanical problems at all and we put in a lot of laps, which is good for me as it's the first time I've been here in Formula One. It's always good to learn the circuit quickly with the car working well. We still have some work in a couple of areas, but even so the car is going really well and our times look good so I'm feeling positive about tomorrow's qualifying."

GARY ANDERSON, DIRECTOR OF RACE AND TEST ENGINEERING

"I'm pleased that we were consistent today and carried forward our momentum from this morning. We concentrated mainly on evaluating the tyres for the race, and although we are looking good, we still have a bit of work to do. The track is quite slippery and dirty at the moment and generally we're quite good in those conditions, but when the track builds up grip, sometimes it doesn't suit us so well. If the surface conditions don't get too hot, we can do a good job. The balance is reasonable and we are looking fairly strong."


GIANCARLO FISICHELLA
