Pedro Diniz:
"The track was very dirty, but despite that all of the set-up work we did today paid off. There was a fair degree of degradation in the tyres, probably because of all the grit on the surface, but I still managed a lot of laps on my first set. There was then a big, big difference switching to new rubber at the end, when the car felt really good."

Mika Salo:
"We spent the day trying different set-ups, and we did all that we needed to do. The car felt fine, but it would be a mistake to try and compare today with the test here last week because the dust on the track made so much difference."

Peter Sauber:
"It was a clear disadvantage to go out early today because of the adverse condition of the track surface, but at the same time it was necessary to do just that in order to achieve the mileage that we planned. In the end we achieved our goals, bearing in mind that in these circumstances there was no point in using too many sets of tyres."
