Turkish GP : Alonso & Massa Friday quotes
"The two sessions were very different from one another because of climate change. We have taken advantage of the fact that the track is wet this morning because it could start raining tomorrow or even in the race. Everything is good to take. We have installed various elements such as front and rear wings, and new brake ducts. We analyzed the data and now know what works best. I had a hydraulic problem which m forced him to stay in the stands during an hour this afternoon. What is that Felipe has made a big part of the job. Then in one of my few laps I was able to try the fin moving back, I am very satisfied. He will confirm this race performance. We have closed the gap a few tenths, which should help us get closer to the leaders. What is certain is that we don't abandon it along the way."
Felipe Massa :
"From what I saw today we have made progress in performance, but we're not close enough faster. In fact, it is unclear whether we are close rivals after two sessions free practice. I think now we must wait to see the qualifications clearer, but we must work hard to be first. We're in theright direction, but others are not lagging behind as Mercedes example seems to have strongly progressed and the rain could open many possibilities. The race could also occur in the dry, and as it is a demanding circuit, we must be cautious but I really enjoy driving here because this circuit is very technical."
