Turkey Friday quotes: BMW

Robert Kubica - 10th: "This morning the track was really slippery and many drivers went off, so the conditions were very difficult. In the afternoon the conditions were better, we mainly concentrated on the long runs to compare the tyres and we have done some good work.

"Unfortunately the session was stopped for quite a while, so we had to drop some setup work, but we have some time to do that tomorrow. I would have liked to do one more run, but it was the same for everyone."

Nick Heidfeld - 13th: "I enjoy driving here and I like the track, although in the morning in particular it was very slippery. Despite losing almost half an hour of track time, we completed all the important jobs and compared the two tyre specifications. The set-up is not ideal yet and, in my view, my long runs at the end were not perfect either."

Willy Rampf (Technical Director): "We can be satisfied up to now. We lost valuable track time for the set-up work, but that is the same for every team, so we concentrated on long runs.

"Now we have to look into the data, but we are happy with the lap times set over the longer runs. Tomorrow our focus will be preparation for qualifying. For Sunday we can expect similar temperatures to today, so we have a hot race ahead of us."
