Qualifying session

14 - Bernd Schneider We've got a good set-up for the Top Qualifying, but I'm not quite happy with my race set up. It isn't as fast, as I wished it to be, and it puts a heavy strain on the tyres. For tomorrow's Top Qualifying I'm expecting Dario to be my toughest rival. Although: You always have to watch Kurt Thiim; especially in Top Qualifyings Kurt shows absolutely overwhelming performances."

15 - Dario Franchitti "I just went out for a fast lap but because of a problem I had to return to the pits at once. After this little problem was solved, I did one fast lap - that's it. So I'm really happy - not only with today's practice, but with all the season. And if the second half of 1995 will prove to be as good as the first one was, I'll be a really happy man."

4 - Jan Magnussen "Point one: It feels really good to be back in the car. Point two: It's great to be competitive, although I have to brake with my left foot. But, as I am not accustomed to that, I still brake with my right foot from time to time. And I tell you, this really hurts very much. But nevertheless: If I'll be in second position on Sunday and there is only one more lap to go, I definitely will brake with my right foot. Because I want to win, as often as possible."

2 - Keke Rosberg "Fourth and fifth in the morning sessions, now Klaus and I achieved the places eight and seven. I think, this is a good team result - especially regarding, that my car is a brandnew one. I'm quite happy with it, since we found some more downforce in the front. Now the balance is much better, so tomorrow we will begin with the fine tuning."

7 - Alessandro Nannini "I had to park my car on the track because of a technical defect. But we've got no idea, what kind of problem was responsable for my retirement. So we got to look for the problem and solve it."

20 - JJ Lehto "To be honest, this result was just the one I had expected. Caused by the problems in the free practice sessions I could do only two laps and lost all the morning. And it wouldn't have been worth while doing more laps now, for this would have ruined the tyres for the Top Qualifying."

12 - Michele Alboreto "I spun of the track in Bilstein curve and had to be towed off. A really disappointing result, I'm not happy with at all."
