Team Quotes
Heikki Kovalainen, car 20, chassis CT01-#3:
Its been a pretty good weekend so far. The balance has been better than we had in Korea and on my first run in qualifying the car felt ok. There was more to come but I had a bit of traffic that held me up and then on my second run I caught up with a bunch of cars going into turn 10 and lost a bit of grip, enough to put me off. I wasnt going in too hard and there werent any issues with the car, I just lost the front end and even with the spin I didnt lose any positions so I think we can still have a good race tomorrow.

Vitaly Petrov, car 21, chassis CT01-#2: Im really happy with where we finished up today. All weekend the team has done a good job and Ive had a balance Ive been happy with in every session. We made a couple of changes for quali and the way the car felt and my laptimes showed that we made some progress, so Im pleased with that. Now were looking ahead to tomorrow and to be honest anything could happen. Nobodys too sure what tyre strategies will be run, it could be one stop or two, so well look at that tonight and Im pretty sure that if we make the right choice we could have a decent result in the race.
