Comments from the Renualt team after Friday qualifying:

Jarno Trulli 6th 1:36.301:

"It was a good Friday session. This morning we had a productive test and free practice session, trying different set-ups and tyres in preparation for the race. This afternoon the car was very well balanced and our times are close to those of the top teams, so everything is looking good at the moment, for tomorrow's qualifying".

Fernando Alonso 10th 1:36.693

"I think it was a good day for us overall. This morning we ran on a damp track, which allowed us to test a couple of things in case of rain in Sunday's race. This afternoon, our lap times look quite competitive and I am confident we can move up in tomorrow's qualifying".

Pat Symonds, Executive Engineering Director, Mild Seven Renault F1 Team:

"It was a pretty straightforward session and we are reasonably satisfied. Jarno's sixth place is quite encouraging, it reflects where we expected to be. Fernando could have done better on his lap, but with this new regulations, drivers have to get used to new driving techniques, which come with experience. But with the amount of work accomplished since this morning, we feel very confident for Sunday's race".

Denis Chevrier, Engine Operations Manager, Mild Seven Renault F1 Team:

"A very good job from the Team this morning, which resulted in a very good 6th place with Jarno, positioned amongst the top teams, which reveals the potential of the car. From the engine point of view, we are very pleased to have run a troublefree full day".
