"In the morning session, we had the first opportunity to assess the new aero components we have on the car for this weekend. It is hard to say exactly how effective they are, as in the morning session the track is green and you don't know what fuel loads the others are using or what tyres they are on. But the overall feeling is positive and we are going in the right direction. In the afternoon, I had a problem with the rear brake, which unfortunately happened right at the start of the second session, so I lost some track time, before the guys got me out again. It's not the best way to begin the weekend, but we will just have to deal with it. We will be looking very carefully at Bourdais' data as well as mine from the second session, then factor in how we think the circuit will improve for tomorrow, when hopefully I can do my best to catch up. The car in this new configuration definitely has more potential, but I think it will take more than one race weekend to get the most out of it."


First Practice Session
Best lap 1.23.185, pos.18th, 31 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.22.571, pos.9th , 17 laps

Sebastien Bourdais (STR4-02)

"We have a new package here which should give us a greater potential than at the earlier races. Unfortunately, a couple of problems meant we were not able to exploit it fully today. Nevertheless, we managed to complete 60 laps, split 30-30 morning to afternoon, so we gathered a lot of data. Hopefully, we can now work with that to find a good set-up on the car for tomorrow's qualifying and Sunday's race."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.23.088, pos.15th , 30 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.22.615, pos.11th, 30 laps
