San Fransisco, July 20, 2001

Rinaldo Capello (#1)
“On this circuit you have to concentrate every single second. When you make only a small mistake you pay for it immediately. The most difficult part? Everywhere. Especially the last part when we are in sixth gear and are going very fast.”

Tom Kristensen (#1)
“The circuit is quite impressive because it’s very technical. It was my first time today on this track and so I’m very happy that I was quick right from the beginning. At certain points on the circuit, it is very demanding and you have to take care that you stay on the track.”

Frank Biela (#2)

“There is simply not a single easy section to relax on this circuit. But if you want to stay on the safe side with your car, you can lose a lot of time. If you have to mention an easy part, it is the hairpin before start and finish. The other hairpin looks very simple. But it is definitely not.”

Emanuele Pirro (#2)
“The track was very slippery at the beginning but I don’t expect this to change so much. So we had similar conditions as we will find during the race. We did a few modifications and now we are much happier with the car.”

Johnny Herbert (#38)
"To me it is quite a historic track because we have Oulton Park back in England which is actually very similar to this. A lot of undulating corners, a lot of corners where you cannot see the middle of the corner nor the exit. That character is very nice, so I'm enjoying it a lot."

Andy Wallace (#38)

"I've only ever been here once in 1997. It's actually quite an interesting track to drive, mostly corners, even the straight is turning. It's going to be hard work physically I think but the Audi rides the bumps really well."
