Comments after the Free Practice

Miguel Ramos, Vitaphone Racing Maserati No.2: "We went for this Free Practice with a different set-up and were much slower than our No.1 car (Bartels/Bertolini)."

Miguel Ramos, Vitaphone Racing Maserati No.2: “We’ve tested a new differential but it did not work very well.

Enrique (Bernoldi) "was a bit faster than me, some three tenths of a second, but still very far from our No.1 car. So for this afternoon’s pre-qualifying we will go back to the basic set-up and see how things go.

Alessandro Pier Guidi - "First of all I have to be satisfied being here with Maserati this weekend and at having the chance to race on this circuit. As for today, I am pleased at how the car performed.
The car was set up superbly from the off and showed it was competitive and pacy.
We will have to work for qualifying tomorrow but I am confident. Even the tyres held up well over the laps I ran. The track is stunning even though the conditions today were variable. This morning, despite the heat, the track surface had not dried out from the night-time rain but it is really hot out there now
