Q. Stefano, is this pretty much a home race for you with all this support for Fernando Alonso?
Stefano DOMENICALI: For sure it is special event as you feel the atmosphere that is around mainly Fernando. It is an added pressure that we have on top of the fact that as you know we announced yesterday the extension of the agreement. That is an important element at this stage of the season that put once more here in Spain something special. But this is part of the game. We know that wherever we go the supporters of Ferrari are a lot and this is the greatest thing of our brand.
Q. The contract with Fernando. Is it a surprise to be such a long contract?
SD: No, I think it is a natural evolution of the relationship between the team and Fernando. It is a natural evolution as it gives a sign of stability for the future. It is important in this moment when a lot of things are changing, it is important for the guys who are working at home, to see how Fernando wants to keep fighting with us. It is a sign of great responsibility to all of us as we know how strong he is, and how dedicated he is to the team. That is the reason why we felt it was the right decision for us.
Q. Coming to the engine regulations. It is always perceived Ferrari is against them. Is that the case or is it a wrong view?
SD: As you know we always discuss our position. As you can imagine, on the road car side we are a manufacturer that produces a very specific car with a very high number of cylinders. But as always in our cooperation with the FIA we are discussing it and I think the discussion is still on and in a constructive way we are trying to work on this subject as it is an important element for the future, both on the technological side, but also we need to consider the level of investment that the new project needs. These are the things we need to consider as a lot of things have moved on in a couple of months and it is another thing that has to be considered, full stop.
Q. What are your feelings on the diffuser regulation?
AP: Well, the diffuser is something that some teams started a good job earlier than other teams so, as always, a big reward to the one that understood the potential of that development on the car. Then, of course, we have seen that and we were working flat-out to see how we can improve that area of the car. The meeting that will (take place) in two, three weeks is fundamental, as we need to understand what will be the future of the development. If that area, let me put it this way, closed, then we need to target a new area of development, and as you know, the season is very long. But after I would say six, seven grands prix, the margin that some teams can have taken put the other teams in a different situation so that's another element the technical people will consider.
Q. Jose, as a home race how important is this for you as a Spanish team.
Jose CARABANTE: Yes, this race for us feels like home. For us it is a very special weekend. The atmosphere is different, so we always try to do the best here. We feel Montmelo is like home and it is a very, very amazing weekend so let's see what happens.
Q. Very often there is discussion about the health of the team. How healthy is it and does it have the money to continue?
JC: OK, after our first season it was not an easy beginning. Now I think we are in a different position and the result is clear. We are improving in all the areas. I think that every race we are looking at how we can improve and the result is clear. We are also starting to think about 2012. There is already in place a contract with the Mercedes wind tunnel that is going to mean that for next year we have time to prepare properly the program.
Q. And your feelings about the diffuser. Do you want the diffuser or would you prefer a different decision from this meeting?
JC: What is important, especially for a small team, is also about the costs. This is something that that we hope stays in consideration. The costs in Formula 1, I think that it should be affordable and should be in the right way. We need stability in the technology side and we need to know what the future is going to be otherwise we take the wrong way and it is going to be difficult to start in a different way and we are not in a position to spend money. Just trying things. We just hope the decision is clear and we hope that the small teams' opinion will be taken into consideration.
Q. I have two questions for Adam Parr. You've experienced a terrifying beginning of the season with no points in four races. Why does your car work so badly; what can be done to solve the issue and what's the atmosphere in the team like?
AP: Well, the atmosphere of a racing team, when you have a performance like this is very tough, for all of us. In my opinion, the reason the car is slow is lack of downforce, which is affecting every aspect of performance and particularly the degradation of the tires, so that's the area we are focusing on. As I said, it's not a party.
Q. How do those performances endanger Williams' life in terms of finances and would you have floated part of the company on the stock exchange if you had known those results?
AP: It's a good question. Obviously, if we don't improve our performance, it does have some affect on our financial position. But that takes time, and we have some time in which to turn things around, and we, of course, have taken very prompt and very decisive action to do that. One of the things that I know about markets is that if you knew yesterday what was going to happen tomorrow, then you'd be a very rich man, so I don't think there's much point in looking at what I would have done if I had known things now which I didn't know before.
