LUXEMBOURG GRAND PRIX PRACTICE SESSION 25th SEPTEMBER 1998

The Danka Zepter Arrows Team finished today's Practice session for the Luxembourg Grand Prix with Pedro Diniz in 15th and Mika Salo in 22nd position.

Mika Salo: "It wasn't a very good morning for me. I seemed to follow the same pattern as at the last race, when I also lost track time during the practice sessions due to a problem on my car. Today we tried to sort out an earlier balance problem, when during an outing at the beginning of the second session I lost hydraulic pressure which resulted in my car stopping on the track."

Pedro Diniz: "We ran the whole day on a high fuel level and managed some pretty good long runs, so I have a feeling that we will be able to acheive a good set-up for tomorrows's qualifying."

Tom Walkinshaw: "The team is still recovering from the set-backs endured at the Belgian Grand Prix, resulting in the loss of valuable test time. There are still a number of improvements to be made to find the right set-up for the cars for tomorrow's qualifying, when we will be using our D-spec engine, which hopefully will produce the desired results."

Chassis Numbers: Pedro Diniz 07, Mika Salo 06, Spare 01
