Fernando Alonso: "compared to other Fridays we are less competitive and now we need to work and see if it comes from the characteristics of the track or if it's our set up which is not good. Tyres are working better here than in India, they suffered many blisters last week especially in fast corners but here it is no longer the case especially with the night when temperatures fall.Unfortunately, in terms of performance we are behind our rivals in the battle for the second place in the constructors standings. In comparison of the beginning of the year they grew and became difficult to beat but tomorrow we will make some changes and we will do the maximum because we do not want to abandon the battle."
Felipe Massa: "today we have done throughout the program scheduled for this day on the assessment of the tyres and for the moment I am not satisfied with the tyres . In addition, the behavior of the car is not as good as we hoped on this track, we found ourselves in difficulty under the sun with high temperatures then the climatological have drop with the night. These variations make it difficult data understanding.Now we need to analyze the data to improve the performance of the car for tomorrow's qualifications , we know that it won't be easy but we will do our best."
