European Grand Prix - Race - Saturday June 23rd </pre> Jonathan Cochet - 16th
"I had to pass into the gravel in the first corner in order to avoid a collision with others cars. Then I lost ground because my tyres were dirty, and did a few mistakes due to my lack of experience of the car with heavy fuel load. But I improved my laptimes constantly and the car was better on traction than yesterday. Thanks to the experience gained here this weekend and to my good knowledge of the Magny-Cours track, I will certainly feel more comfortable and be more competitive at the French Grand Prix next Saturday."

Zsolt Baumgartner - 19th
"I have been surprised by the behaviour of the car with heavy fuel on board and I spun in the fourth lap. This incident had luckily no consequence and I was able to catch up with Camathias. But once stuck behind him I never had a chance to overtake him. However this race was very positive for me and I learnt a lot this weekend. Obviously I hope for a better result in Magny-Cours."

Dominique Delestre - Team Manager
"Considering our positions on the grid, and since we know it is almost impossible to overtake on this track, our objective today was to allow our drivers to gain more racing experience and especially to become familiar with the car in race configuration. As regards to this, it is a satisfaction to see both drivers finishing the race. The outcome of this weekend is positive for us, and we can reasonably hope for a better performance in Magny-Cours. "
