Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola:

"The track has really changed. This morning we were struggling with understeer. Now we have oversteer and the bumps are really upsetting the car. I think we were headed in the right direction by the end of the session. We just ran out of time."

Guy Smith, #6 Swift Caravans Lola:

"I had a big oversteer problem this session.  I actually had a quite
neutral car this morning.  With the higher temperatures we picked up more
front grip.  Although we are only 10th fastest, I don't think it really
gives a true indication of where we are.  I think we will be right up
there again tomorrow after a few more changes.  I'm still very confident."
