The OrangeArrows team finished Free Practice for the 2002 Spanish Grand Prix in excellent shape. Heinz-Harald Frentzen posted the second fastest time of the day whilst Enrique Bernoldi was close behind him in sixth position.

The team ran a three-day test at Silverstone last week, concentrating on aerodynamic and software developments, as well as putting much-needed mileage onto the A23.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen

"I think we made a definite step forward at Silverstone last week. We are certainly going in the right direction set up-wise now. We are also very much enjoying an upgrade from Cosworth. Overall a constructive and trouble-free day and we hope for more of the same tomorrow."

Enrique Bernoldi

"I had a good day today, improving the car steadily as we went through the sessions. The car feels good here and we have made a lot of progress. We did a lot of work with the tyres and have made our decision on those."

Mike Coughlan, Technical Director, OrangeArrows

"We're happy with the result today and the new front wing we ran last week is a definite step forward. We made some mistakes in testing here in February but we have learnt from those. At Silverstone last week we found our direction and we are continuing to follow that direction. We're also delighted to have a significant upgrade from Cosworth for this weekend."

Weather: Sunny and warm. Maximum ambient temperature 24˚C.
