Gastón Mazzacane Position: 21 "We did a lot of modifications this morning and in the qualifying as well. I am 50% satisfied. Actually I would have preferred to get a better placement because I believe it could have been within our grasp.

"We did a lot of modifications this morning and in the qualifying as well. I am 50% satisfied. Actually I would have preferred to get a better placement because I believe it could have been within our grasp. My qualifying has been characterised by some ups and downs because I was unable to improve my times consecutively during my four attempts. Starting from the last row, we cannot expect so much from tomorrow’s race. Should it rain, hopefully we will have one more chance."

Marc Gené
Position: 22

"It was a really disappointing day and I do not understand why. The time I set yesterday allowed me to score a midfield position whereas since this morning my car’s behaviour was different albeit in the same trim as yesterday. During the whole day we tried to understand what was going wrong in comparison with yesterday’s practice without finding any answers. The track conditions were not so different, that’s why I really do not understand."

Gian Carlo Minardi
"There is not much to say. Unfortunately we did not manage to score the same times as Friday’s and now we will investigate the data to find out the reasons. The fact is that yesterday the car felt good while today it suffered a lot of under steering which did not allow both drivers to improve."
