The Arrows team were able to complete their programme for today's practice session and both their drivers Jos Verstappen and Enrique Bernoldi were satisfied after ending the session in 14th and 16th place respectively.
"We had a pretty reasonable day today," Verstappen said. "We got through our whole programme and are happy with the work we got done so we now have a very good base to start from tomorrow. I'm also pleased with the speed we have here."
Team mate Bernoldi, who had already competed at the A1-Ring in the past, was also happy with his day's work despite some oil pressure problems. Living in Austria, the Brazilian is hoping for a good result in tomorrow's qualifying.
"We more or less got through our programme today," explained Bernoldi. "I went off this afternoon which lost us a bit of time, we still need to fine tune the balance, but generally we are happy with what we've achieved.
"We had a small problem at the end of the second session with what looks like oil pressure so the team called me in. Nevertheless, it feels good to be racing in Austria as, living in Salzburg, this is a 'home' Grand Prix for me and also for Red Bull."
