"After this morning practice, I was not completely satisfied with my = car's balance and we continued to work on my set-up during qualifying. I = improved at each run but unfortunately in the last one, I touched the = barriers in the tunne,l which cost me some places on the grid. I am = obviously disappointed but starting in 11th place, everything remains = possible in Monaco."

"It is clear that we had a difficult day. This morning, I crashed = heavily in Sainte-D=E9vote due to a problem with the brakes. It = destroyed my car and I lost the whole second session. Therefore in = qualifying I had to run with the T-car. Anyway, I was trying to build up = a set-up during qualifying and I improved a lot at each lap. = Unfortunately I had traffic on the last one and I could not reach for a = better position. Since we broke all the new bits on my car this morning, = I will start with the old spec aero package tomorrow. At least the race = will allow me to learn more about Monaco and I will do my best to run a = strong race."

"Our position on the grid as well as the time-gaps with the frontrunners = confirm we have consistently improved. Today our objective was to be = among the top ten and we had achieved it until this morning with Jean. = His practice sessions were flawless and it's a shame that he could not = make the best of his last qualifying lap. Thanks to our excellent = reliability, we are confident that he will run a very good race = tomorrow. Luciano's lack of experience and lack of chance have resulted = in a not satisfying poistion on the grid. However his determination and = drive even after his accident this morning have been remarkable and this = could pay off tomorrow, knowing that the Monaco race is always = unpredictable."
