Fernando Alonso: "impressions are correct for a Friday, we will have to wait until tomorrow and see how we will be in qualifying.On this track it's aerodynamics that made a difference so for this reason I don't expect great surprises for the rest of the weekend compared to Singapour. In concern of the performance we're here where we were in Singapore, and we can expect a tough race. The difference between the two types of tyres is not so obvious as to Singapore but the super soft degrades quickly but we will have to see if the evolution of the track fixes this worries. It won't be easy for us to do a good weekend but we can do it Sunday. Now, we try to get the best out of our car to get the best of tomorrow and for the race."
Felipe Massa: "it was a pretty good day, just worked as expected and I had a good feeling with the car. In the morning I couldn't do a lot of laps due to a puncture in the left front tyre . Lost time has been caught up in the afternoon and we completed our program . The car did manage the two types of tyres even though on the super soft we faced significant degradation. On a first lap with new tyres we are gaining a lot with these tyres but after it's more difficult, the graining seems more important than with the medium tyres . However it's only Friday and we still need to understand where we are compared to our rivals because we saw that Mercedes and Red Bull are very strong, I hope to have a more competitive car during the last races which will allow me to fight for good positions."
