Jean Alesi:
"I had a good start and everything was going fine. The rhythm was good until the hydraulic pressure suddenly tumbled just after my pit stop. We have to find out exactly what happened so that it doesn't happen again. "

Nick Heidfeld:
"I was happy during the early stages of the race as I made a very good start and overtook several cars on the first lap. I had a good fight with Jenson Button who overtook me at the hairpin before I passed him at the last chicane. I was keeping up a very good pace but was held up a bit by a group of cars just in front. I'm not sure why but I started to feel something was going wrong with the engine, and indeed, I had to retire right after my pit-stop."

"The whole weekend confirms the considerable progress made by the team regarding the handling of the car, but also the fact that we definitely have to find better reliability to turn this improvement into a result. Today again, this has cost us dearly."

Corrado Provera: "Jean once again proved his talent with a superb start to the race, starting 17th and rapidly climbing to ninth. Unfortunately, he had to retire with a hydraulic problem. His lap times were very close to those of the front runners, which proved the progress that we've made, but unfortunately, we couldn't confirm that progress. Nick Heidfeld, having started at the back of the grid, picked up several places early on and was running at a good pace but he, too, had to retire, following a leak in the combined gearbox and engine oil system."
