"I had not achieved a position like today's for a long time in the Friday session. Therefore I am happy with the job we have done, based as always on our usual free practice program. It is clear that tomorrow things will change, since the others will have the qualifying engines at their disposal. However the car is handling well and I am satisfied with the tyres too. What's more I enjoy so much driving on the very fast circuits and I will try to exploit not only my car's potential but also mine, as much as I can. There is still a matter of uncertainty with regard to the fact that we do not know which is the margin of improvement left to our opponents, but I guess we can play a good game too."

Gaston Mazzacane:
Considering that I was driving a car at Spa for the very first time, I would say it was not to bad. Today I ran trouble free sessions, working on the set-ups. My car is feeling pretty good and it is well balanced, but unfortunately I lost time in the straights, so tomorrow I must continue working in this direction to try and find a good compromise in terms of aerodynamics."
