OLIVIER PANIS : 6th - 1.42.925 "My practice session was divided truly into two parts. This morning, I had a lot of difficulty in finding the grip I needed and I did not have a good feeling on my first set of tyres. We studied some points between the two sessions and I went out again, always with a fuel load, having made some major changes to the front suspension. On my next set of tyres, it was satisfactory. We have still to refine some details before qualifying tomorrow, but we are going the right way and I am confident. "

JARNO TRULLI : 19th - 1.43.916 "As the team asked, I did all my work professionally with a clear goal - to find the best set-up for my car using the same tyres in order to save one set for the weekend. In the same conditions as the other drivers, I was well-placed and this has given me confidence for tomorrow. At the end of the session, I did not improve my times contrary to those who went on to new tyres. "

ALAIN PROST "Today we accomplished a good day's work. The drivers both worked well in different directions, to give us the chance to gather a lot of information for the qualifying session. We still need to improve the driveability of the cars and to optimise the engines for low revs, this is the programme for tomorrow morning's free session. I think we should be able to have a competitive car to take a good grid position. "
