Jean Alesi:

Today was a disaster for me. We lacked downforce, and it was just not possible to balance the car properly. It was understeering far too much in qualifying. We have compared everything in the set-ups, and I cannot see why I am six tenth slower than Pedro.

Pedro Diniz:

The car was a little bit better than it was this morning, after a small improvement to the set-up stopped it oversteering so much. But on my last run I tried to get a tow from Villeneuve on my out lap, and he was quite slow in the stadium section. When I came to the first corner on my flying lap the brakes were a little cold as a result, so I lost the chance to go quicker.

Peter Sauber:

Even if there had been a correct set-up for us in qualifying, we were unable to find it. Our technical probelms yesterday lost us much valuable track time, which had an adverse knock-on effect on our chances today.
