Zeltweg, Austria, 24th July 1999 Free Practice

First place for Damon

Damon Hill produced an excellent performance on Friday's free practice session at the A1 ring in Austria today, finishing in first place with a best time of 1.13.303. Heinz-Harald Frentzen had a less productive session, having to retire early with a gear box problem.

DAMON HILL 1st 1.13.303 CHASSIS NUMBER 4 "That was fun! I enjoyed myself and am delighted to finish the day in first place. The team has done a great job to develop the car and now I feel I am able to really fight, something I have missed for most of this season. When the car feels good you can really start to dig deeper -- although I went off so many times, I wondered whether I should be taking up a new career as a rally driver! The reason I went off was that we had not found the right set up, but obviously we fixed it by the end of the session. If I can keep this balance tomorrow we should do well."

HEINZ-HARALD FRENTZEN 15th 1.14.558 CHASSIS NUMBER 5 "My position today does not reflect where we should be but I feel confident that tomorrow we will put things right. I was not able to find the right set up today and had to finish running early because of a gear box problem. We will work on finding a good set up and lap time tomorrow."

The T car, chassis 6 is set up for Heinz-Harald Frentzen for tomorrow's qualifying.
