Bahrain Friday quotes: Michelin

Nick Shorrock, Michelin Formula One director: "At this stage, teams are still finding their way with the new regulations and some of our partners have yet to show their true hand, so I don't believe we'll get a clear picture of how things stand until we have worked our way through a complete race weekend.

"What I can say with certainty, however, is that we are very pleased with the way our tyres performed today. Anthony Davidson set some very good times for Honda and we were all impressed with the consistent, progressive performance of BMW Sauber test driver Robert Kubica in his first Grand Prix meeting - particularly as the track was very dirty, so conditions weren't easy.

"As we anticipated, it looks as though there will be intense competition this season, but our tyres have reacted exactly as we expected and so far we are very satisfied with our tyres' speed and durability."
