Belgium GP : Alonso & Massa Friday quotes

Fernando Alonso: "it was a good day even if in the morning we lost time because of the rain so in the afternoon we had double work to do.Before drawing conclusions we are expecting the analysis of the acquired data this afternoon on two cars, as Massa and I have tried different aerodynamic configurations with more or less supports what will be the real key to the race, taking account of the weather.With regard to our time, we are closer to the leader but I am not sure what weather I want to have because it is true that cards can be redistributed in the rain but there is so much to gain or to lose.It will be also important to have a good understanding of the tyres on the dry track and understand what has happened to Vettel and Van der Garde even though I do not think that it is a problem similar to that of Silverstone, it is without doubt a set of random circumstances but there should be a thorough analysis."

Felipe Massa: "rather capricious weather has had a great impact on the conduct of free practice with a minimal operation in the morning, but lot of work in the afternoon and we want to see it as a half full glass , because we managed to do important tricks in the morning to get an idea of the behaviour of the car on wet track which is always helpful here. In the afternoon, on dry track we have completed the program and tested the new parts as well as the two types of Pirelli tyres. The result of the racing simulations is that we need still more pace and we will do our possible to properly qualify tomorrow."
