The first practice sessions of the Malaysian Grand Prix took place today in Sepang, under very hot conditions : the air temperature was 33 while the track was reaching 44. The Prost Acer team had a productive first day and is already looking forward to tomorrow to further improve the handling of its Prost Acer AP04 and to adapt it to the specifications of the Sepang circuit.

Jean Alesi
"Today we worked in several areas and we tried numerous set-ups. But there are still many details we need to improve and tomorrow morning will be very important to fine - tune today's work."

Gaston Mazzacane
"It has been quite a difficult day, with the heat and the atmosphere here, but all the teams had to cope with it anyway. These first practice sessions have been productive for me, since I've been able to complete a lot of laps, and we were able to test various mechanical set-ups, with varying degrees of success. It is much too early to analyse our positions and laptimes of today because the hard work will continue tomorrow morning and hopefully the track conditions will evolve consistently."
