Felipe also conducted a complete programme of assessment of future compounds and constructions for Bridgestone. Overall we are quite satisfied with the way things went today."

Felipe Massa:

"It feels good to be back in the car. I quite like the Valencia track, and it was in much better condition today than yesterday, when Nick Heidfeld reported that it was quite dirty. I'm pleased that we were able to complete our programme."
