Orange Arrows drivers Pedro de la Rosa and Jos Verstappen were 10th and 16th fastest after the first day of practice for the San Marino Grand Prix. Pedro's fastest time was 1 min 28.444 secs and Jos's 1 min 28.975 secs.

Jos Verstappen:
"We made some adjustments to the car and improved it a little bit. We had a radiator leak in the second session so we had to stop for about 20 minutes and lost some track time. This means we will still have to change the car a bit for tomorrow, but it is not too bad considering we are running with a lot of fuel - I am confident it will be good in qualifying."

Pedro de la Rosa:
"It has been a very positive Friday for us. We made some changes to the car and know where we are for tomorrow, so have some answers. The car seems to be behaving very well on the circuit. Like Jos I am confident for tomorrow and very impressed with how the car is handling on this circuit."

Tom Walkinshaw:
"The car seems to work well here at Imola and I am sure, despite the cold weather at Silverstone, we were able to improve the cars at the test last week. Both drivers are happy with the way things are going and are giving me confidence we can put in a good qualifying performance tomorrow."
