Nick Heidfeld:
"We cannot be too happy with our positions today, but at least I feel that Jean and I have got the best we could from our cars on this circuit. There was not much more we could do as we have not had any major improvements on the car for this final part of the season. But, far from accepting this, we are still working hard and hope to produce a strong race tomorrow."

Jean Alesi:
"I have experienced a lot of difficulties in adapting my car and in finding a good compromise here. I do not feel sufficiently confident to have pushed to the maximum as I would have liked to on this circuit. All this has not left me the ideal condition to find a good balance or to be competitive. But of course we remain ready to take advantage of any opportunity in the last two races."

Alain Prost:
"When looking at the gaps between the lap times today, it was difficult for us to do better and we should not feel too frustrated. It is a confirmation of our difficulties in qualifying, after starting the weekend without any particular problems. We remain motivated, right to the end, to claim a good result and we will, once more, make the best of all the circumstances in tomorrow's race."
