"We ran the two cars with very different settings: I was fairly happy with mine and when I tried Buemi's I didn't like it all, so we went back to our first choice and it was better again, so that gives us a clear indication of which direction we should go in. As for the usual Friday tyre comparison, we've got an accurate picture from today's data. We still lack pace, but it looks better than Turkey and we just have to continue getting the most out of our current package until our major update comes along."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.21.384, pos.15th , 23 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.20.945, pos.16th, 36 laps

Sebastien Buemi (STR4-03)

"I didn't have such a good day and that was because I did not really find my way with the car set-up on this circuit and the whole thing didn't really come together for me. I tried a different approach to my team-mate, but I think we will end up going in the direction that he took, as it seemed to work better and that should help me make the best of tomorrow. The tyre comparison went well, nothing went wrong with the car and, looking at Bourdais' lap time, I think we can be more competitive than in Turkey, but I need to improve a lot."

First Practice Session
Best lap 1.21.590, pos.19th, 37 laps
Second Practice Session
Best lap 1.21.668, pos.20th , 37 laps
