A reasonably good session, if still not good enough for Q3. But planning for the future is important and here our 2 drivers enjoy practicing their microphone technique for an eventual appearance in an FIA Top Three Qualifiers Press Conference.

Sebastien Buemi:

I am quite happy, as the session went smoothly without any mistakes. I got the most I could out of the car and am pleased to have got ahead of Trulli. I'm glad to finally be back in Q2. as it's been a long time. Now we need to work on a race strategy, make a good start and run the pit stops well."

Jaime Alguersuari:

"We did quite well and we're getting faster. It was quite difficult to do better than that, but I am feeling more comfortable with the track every time I get in the car. This has been the hardest track I have driven apart from Macau. With it being a street circuit, anything could happen tomorrow, so hopefully I can have a good race."

Laurent Mekie (Chief Engineer):

"We had a very difficult Friday and made a major change to the car set-up overnight, which seems to have been a step in the right direction. Sebastien and Jaime also improved their performance. Jaime has got better throughout the weekend on a track that is difficult to learn and Sebastien is back in Q2 after a gap of a few races. We're still not where we want to be, but having made a good step forward from Friday to today, there is still room to make another one for the race, which is likely to be very chaotic, so anything can happen."
