Michael Schumacher:
"We had a reasonable day's practice. There is not much to say about it as it was uneventful. The car is not too bad. We need to find a good balance for the medium speed corners and the chicane. We will have to concentrate on this a bit. Otherwise the car feels good, especially in the first and third sectors. We must improve in the middle section. It is no harder to find the right set up here than anywhere else."

Rubens Barrichello:
"I am not very happy with the balance we achieved on my car today. Now, I will have to look at the data carefully with my engineers, because we have work to do to improve the performance. However, I am confident we can find a solution. As usual on Friday we worked with the car in race trim. I used two sets of tyres."

Jean Todt:
"This morning we went out on the track only in the last fifteen minutes of the first half of the session as the track was not at its best, given this is a semi-permanent circuit. We quickly made changes to the set up of the cars, running in race trim. In the second hour, we continued searching for the right balance. However, we did not manage to get the most out of the car. Now our engineers will analyse the data to find the right settings. I am confident that they will succeed and tomorrow we should be on the pace to fight for the top positions on the grid."
