Nick Heidfeld
Everything ran very smoothly for me today so I was able to focus throughout on setting up the car. Even the heat did not cause any problems. This morning we improved the car and I was happy with it, but this afternoon we tried a couple of changes and the balance of the car was not as good.

Kimi Raikkonen
This is a nice circuit, and no problem to learn. I think I had a reasonable day, considering it's my first time here, but we have some work to do on the set-up. I had too much understeer and in general the car felt a little nervous. But it'll be okay tomorrow.

Peter Sauber
After a good start this morning we made some changes to the cars but were unable to improve. Our main objective was race preparation, bearing in mind that this is the hottest race on the calendar. I believe that we have a good direction to pursue for free practice and qualifying tomorrow.
