Luciano Burti:
"I am quite happy with my first qualifying result with my new team. Right from the start, I have felt welcomed and relaxed with everyone in the team. I think it contributed to my performance today. This morning, despite the lack of time, everybody worked hard and fast to set up the car for me and we managed to find quite a good balance. In this afternoon's session it was somehow difficult to put in a good lap because of the wind. But at the end of the session, I managed to do a good lap, so I am very satisfied."

Jean Alesi:
"Today's qualyfing has not been an improvement for us. It's disappointing that we couldn't do better on this circuit which we know so well. It's clear that until we have the development due on the car we will not see a significant change. We just have to be patient and wait, before we can see a real progress'."

Alain Prost:
"We had expected a difficult session, because our recurrent problem of balance between rear and front of the car increases in qualyfing configuration. However, we have worked a good deal today, with no real problem. Our cars' times are very close and we have managed to do comparative tests with both drivers. We feel ready and optimistic for tomorrow's race, with both cars well place on the grid. On behalf of the whole team, I would like to congratulate Luciano for the great job he has been doing in his first weekend with the team."
