Nick Heidfeld - 16th: "It was a typical English Silverstone weather to start the weekend, but the positive is that the weather forecast says it will be drier on Sunday. I think that the drier weather will certainly suit our car more as today we were not competitive in the morning or the afternoon sessions. Practice like we saw today is very difficult as the conditions are not consistent so it is difficult to test and evaluate parts and set-up. We did run the wets against the intermediates and tried some small set-up changes. This was my first time on the new layout and my impressions so far are that I preferred the old one. I'm looking forward to driving the new layout in dry conditions, which will hopefully be the case tomorrow."
Vitaly Petrov - 11th: "Today was challenging, to say the least, and it was obviously frustrating not to get many laps out there, especially in the second session when I only managed nine. There's not much you can do about those conditions - it's the same for all of the teams! It was useful to get some more time on both the extreme wets and the intermediates, though and I'm looking forward to making more ground tomorrow when hopefully the weather will be kinder to us. I'm still optimistic about this weekend."
