Alexander Wurz:
"We expected to be in the top ten and we didn't manage it so maybe we were doing something different to the other teams in the practice this morning. I am happy with my performance although I struggled on top speed and seemed to be a bit down on power. I want to thank the mechanics who have worked really hard on my car this weekend particularly after all the problems I had in the session yesterday. Now I am really looking forward to Giancarlo getting his hair cut, as this was our bet if I outqualified him!"

Flavio Briatore:
"After this morning's session we expected to be in a better qualifying position. We need to work now to get a better performance for the race tomorrow."

Pat Symonds:
"I had hoped after this morning's practice that we would have both cars in the top ten and additionally, it appeared that our closest rivals Jordan and BAR would be behind us. The result is not satisfactory and we need now to discover why."
