We have not yet decided if we were going to use the aerodynamic innovations we have tried in the morning. Their effectiveness is not yet quite clear and in the afternoon, we focused on the comparison between the two tyre compounds we have for this race. In front of us, it's another long evening where we study the data to choose the best strategy and set-up for qualifying and the race."
Felipe Massa: "everything went well today even though it is not easy to know what our level of performance for Sunday. However, the balance of the car was good and it well behaved in all conditions and that even if we have a little suffered wear and tear of tires with high temperatures and therefore we have a lot of work to do on this area to prepare for the race.
Tire mediums worked very well and even in the long relay, but the key will be to manage the two types of tires, we still have work to do to decide if we will use tested developments today."

Bahrain GP : Alonso & Massa Friday quotes
Fernando Alonso: "it was a positive day and we are reasonably satisfied with the way the car behaved. We had no major problems, and more important again, we don't have to make important changes on the F138 to adapt to this track and its long straights, its slow corners, features that please me much and are, in principle, many race show.Unfortunately, the wind and the sand complicates everything here, the track surface is never completely clean. However, the feelings are good and I think that we can be in the leading group tomorrow, a group that is reduced to two or maximum three-tenths.
