BRAZILIAN GRAND PRIX - 26 MARCH 2000 THE RACE

GASTON MAZZACANE 11th
Chassis 02 1:32:01.590
"I am happy to finish my second race in F1 even if my performance was not so satisfying. I could have done better because my car was well balanced and although I proved I could be faster, I was not as steady as I could have been. To me Interlagos was very hard and I believe that on another track I could have been faster today."

MARC GENE'
Chassis 03 stop due to engine failure on lap 31
"I am obviously very disappointed for not finishing the race but I am happy with my car's behaviour which is giving me many reasons to be satisfied. We can easily compete with other Teams although we should need more speed to do better, indeed. We did a very good job over the week-end and I feel optimistic for Imola's race although I know that the season is getting more and more demanding."

GABRIELE RUMI
"It has been a weekend of both satisfaction and disappointment; we feel satisfied with the car's competitiveness and we are disappointed to realise that our potential in qualifying will not allow us to reach better positions. Unfortunately, in modern F1, qualifying stands for 50% of the race result. It is sad to see Marc betrayed by the engine when he was doing very well and could possibly improve his race. However, it is pleasing to see that Gastón managed to complete a race physically very demanding. Now we are looking forward to the next race wishing to get more satisfaction."

GIAN CARLO MINARDI
"The result achieved by Gastón is pretty good, especially for his training. With only three laps left, he even set his best lap time. We feel sad for Marc as his times were really close to the average times of the first four or five on the track. However, there is still a lot of work to do to improve our qualifying performance in preparation for the San Marino Grand Prix."
