Jean Alesi:

This morning was very difficult for me; I was a spectator! I did only seven laps before I encountered a problem with a rear wheelnut during a routine wheel change. In the end the team had to change the whole rear upright, so I lost the session. This afternoon was much better. I could attack again, and the car was working very well.

Pedro Diniz:

This morning I tried some new dampers, which made the car feel better, but I still had some mid corner understeer. We changed the set-up a little this afternoon and improved things further, and I'm quite happy with the way it went. This is a circuit that suits our car, and I'm feeling confident that we can qualify well tomorrow.

Peter Sauber:

Naturally we are happy to have both drivers well within the top 10, but we must remember that these are only Friday times.

Weather:

Overcast.
