Jean Alesi:
"One more race with no points at the end unfortunately. We must do our best with what we have at our disposal for the moment, knowing that we will soon be ready to introduce some important evolutions in the race. Next week in Valencia we will test some of these modifications. We hope that they will reward the team's great efforts in the very near future."

Luciano Burti:
"The important thing for me today was to finish the race, in order to know the car better and to gather more experience with my new team. Therefore today's result is positive. I was struggling quite early in the race with the steering, which is not power assisted, and I am still not used to it. That is why I sometimes had difficulties keeping the pace. But I felt the car was really good today, and I look forward to testing this week in Valencia to learn even more and prepare for the Austrian Grand Prix."

Henri Durand:
"Our performance this weekend did not meet our expectations. We clearly have a lot of work to do on the car. Luciano had a very impressive weekend bearing in mind the little time he has spent with us prior to this race. Jean set some respectable laptimes in the race, performing quite well in the first stint and less in the second and third. We go back home with a lot of information to analyze and we continue our effort to improve the aerodynamics and the handling of the rear of the car, especially on tyre management. We will carry on this intense work, hoping to achieve our objective as soon as possible."

Alain Prost:
"Our reliability level is still a very positive aspect. It was supported throughout this week-end by the very good job done by the team. Our free practice sessions have been very productive, our pit-stops were perfect today : we are now ready to achieve good performances ! I am confident that we will make some significant gains thanks to the numerous developments we will introduce progressively and we just have to continue our hard work. Finishing this race with both cars is satisfactory, especially for Luciano's first race with our team."
