Jean Alesi:

This has been one of those days. This morning I ran over the camera that is mounted in the kerb in Turn 6 on my third lap, and damaged the new undertray. The car jumped quite high when I hit it. I was due to run with an earlier undertray this afternoon, but my car developed an hydraulic problem at the beginning of the session and I couldn't get out until the very end. I managed to trim a couple of tenths off my time, and I'm sure we would have been better placed without the problems.

Pedro Diniz:

The car is better with the suspension and aerodynamic changes that we have introduced, there's more grip. But we had to try a different set-up this morning to the one we developed in testing here last week, because the track conditions were quite different. I was pleased with things this morning, but unfortunately I lost the session this afternoon when the fuel pressure dropped and the car stopped on the circuit.

Peter Sauber:

Technical problems prevented us running very much this afternoon, but because we were able to test here a lot last week the damage is not as severe as it might have been.

Weather:

Sunny, but windy.
