Imola (Autodromo Enzo e Dino Ferrari)

The 2002 San Marino Grand Prix turned out to be a tough race, with only half the grid completing the course. OrangeArrows driver, Heinz-Harald Frentzen, retired before half distance when his A23 lost power. Team-mate, Enrique Bernoldi, retired just ten laps before the end when his car also lost power.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen

"I had a tough start to the race as, while I was defending my position from Fisichella, his team-mate Sato got past. I managed to retake him on the next lap though. The car felt good until I experienced a sudden loss of power a couple of laps before I was due to come in for my pit-stop. We have a lot of work to do at Silverstone next week."

Enrique Bernoldi

"I was approaching Rivazza, shifted down, and had no power so had to pull off the track. For sure it is disappointing to have my race cut short as I was enjoying myself out there today."

Mike Coughlan, Technical Director, OrangeArrows

"Well that was a tough one. Heinz-Harald was going well on a one-stop strategy but experienced a sudden lost of fuel rail pressure. Enrique's problem is currently unexplained as we lost telemetry. Both drivers had the pace today and it's annoying that we are having these reliability issues. We are testing at Silverstone next week so believe me we will be putting in a few race distances!"
