We just can't seem to catch a break. The car's pretty good but the track was damp while I was out there. Then it started drying and then it started raining... so what do you do? It's difficult to pass here so we'll just have to try to stay clean in the race and do the best we can.

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

Basically I'm still working to get more confident on this track. The car is good but I'm still not able to get the most out of the tires when they aren't fully up to temperature. The crash yesterday morning put us behind but we just have to accept that at the moment. We're not doing so badly given the amount of knowledge I have about this track. We have a good car so we'll just have to be patient tomorrow and make the best of it.
