Chassis Numbers:

Car No.9 - Giancarlo Fisichella - Mild Seven Benetton Playlife B199 07 Car No.10 - Alexander Wurz - Mild Seven Benetton Playlife B199 04

Finding the balance of the cars was made difficult by the rapid degradation of the tyres. The day was dedicated to working on race set-up.

Giancarlo Fisichella : 7 th - 1:42.953

"It is too early to understand our true capability on this track. My set-up is quite good, but it is hard to judge as the tyres lose performance after the first lap. The key thing we must do is find grip."

Alexander Wurz : 12 th - 1:43.430

"We are struggling to find an optimal balance for the car and are lacking grip, so these are the areas we need to work on before tomorrow."

Pat Symonds, Technical Director :

"It has been quite difficult today to find a good balance on the cars. The tyres are degrading rapidly and the set-up is having to change to follow that. Nevertheless we got through a lot of work today and found one or two quite significant improvements."
