QUOTES ON THE SPANISH GRAND PRIX
David Brown, Senior Race Engineer
"We've done four tests in Barcelona this year, so we've done a lot of homework and believe we have got the right tyre choice. I think this circuit will suit the EJ12 better than Imola did because it has more flowing corners and less `stop-starting'. The extra power from the engine is going to help there, and some aerodynamic modifications we have tested at Silverstone look like they will definitely be an advantage. We would expect to be in a better position than at Imola, but it's clear there are still more improvements needed. As always, we will do our utmost with the package we have."
"Barcelona is a very technical circuit so it will be difficult for us to get the set-up just right. We have tested there a lot before the season started, though, so we have made a bit of a head-start. The test in Silverstone has helped us move forward a little, but there is still some work to do."
"As we have tested in Barcelona a few times, I know the circuit much better than any of the tracks I have raced at so far this season. Basically it means that instead of spending my first 10 laps learning a new circuit, I can go straight to set-up work, so we will have more time getting the balance of the car right, which will make a difference. That's a good thing because I think this is going to be a tough circuit for us."
