Timo Glock, 21st: We had a good free practice day today without any major problems, which is good for us and it's encouraging to have such a good start to the weekend. We had a little trouble at the end with a minor power steering issue, which meant we couldn't get a good run in to finish the day, but generally the team did an excellent job so I'm pleased and optimistic that this is a good sign for the rest of the weekend.
Lucas di Grassi, 22nd: A really good day for us with no issues. The car is running smoothly and there is a lot more performance to come, but we are very happy with our best Friday so far. It means we are evolving both as a team and in terms of developing the car.
Nick Wirth, technical director: In the context of our winter testing and the first two races, today was a clear step forward for the Virgin Racing team. Both Timo and Lucas managed to work through good programmes and we seem to have a clear direction to follow tomorrow on set-up. The high-speed corners of Sepang highlighted a small set-up issue on the power steering on Timo's car, which we'll correct tonight. Overall a solid start to the weekend.
