Force India F1 TeamGiancarlo Fisichella: “We made a big improvement from the morning to the afternoon session. This morning there was a lot of understeer and then oversteer – it was really inconsistent but we made a big step forward and the balance was a lot better in the second session. It was more consistent and comfortable. Unfortunately when I was doing my new tyre run Glock was going very slowly in the middle of the last corner so I lost three tenths. It wasn’t acceptable, but thankfully it wasn’t the qualifying session.”

Adrian Sutil: “This morning we had a problem with the engine and then the second session in the afternoon was not so good. Again we had problems with the new tyres – I don’t know if it was the car or the pressures, but we just can’t get a time out of the softer tyres. We have to look at this and improve for tomorrow as I am not happy with today.”

Mike Gascoyne, chief technical officer: “A useful day. A difficult first session with low grip and both cars having a lot of oversteer and an engine failure on Adrian’s car, which limited his running. We were however able to analyse the reasons in the break and improve for the second session. The long runs looked very good and we were able to gather all the data we need. Once again we proved we have a competitive car in that midfield pack and we just have to get everything right for tomorrow to make sure we can now get the best out of qualifying.”
