SPANISH GRAND PRIX - Barcelona, 28th May 1999 FREE PRACTICE

LUCA BADOER Chassis 01 21st 25 laps time: 1:27,314 "During the first free practice session I ran over a kerb and the chassis was damaged. I kept running in order to see whether the chassis's damage was not too serious but unfortunately after a few laps I realized that my car's behaviour was strange and we'll definitely change the monocoque for tomorrow's qualifying. I am disappointed because in comparison with last week tests I didn't manage to improve my time. This is probably due to the unfavourable conditions of the track."

MARC GENE' Chassis 04 22nd 27 laps time: 1:27,506 "The track looked slower in the second session due probably to the strong wind. As a matter of fact, there haven't been time improvements since this morning. We were trying different set-ups to the car in order to improve it. While as I was entering the corner I suddenly spun off. It is a shame because it seemed to be the best moment to understand the car's behaviour with new tyres but it was not the case."

The T-car (chassis 03) is prepared for Marc Gené
