Rod Nelson, Chief Test & Support Engineer:
Today was one of those days Im afraid. We spent most of the morning doing aerodynamic correlation work which was pretty successful. We are getting through our programme day by day. Sadly, we had an issue with one of the car systems over lunchtime and that curtailed a lot of our running this afternoon which we had planned. We know what the issue is, weve got a solution, and now we look forward to next week.

Felipe Massa:
I am not so happy with today - it was not really a useful day. The most important things was that we carried out our aerodynamic tests this morning, to understand the numbers and everything around the car. Unfortunately, we couldnt run much this afternoon. I had hoped to do more laps than I did.
