European GP practice reactions: Renault F1

Fernando Alonso - 1st:

"It was a positive day for us with some good laps and the car performed well right from the start of the first session. We worked on the set-up throughout the day and now we're pretty much happy with what we have so I think we are in good shape for the rest of the weekend. The incident with Nick Heidfeld this afternoon was a normal incident that can happen during racing or free practice. For tomorrow, we will try our best to get on the front row of the grid with the objective of scoring points on Sunday."


Romain Grosjean - 13th:

"The day has gone pretty well. Your first time in a new car is always tricky, but I did my best and having Fernando next to me meant I could see how he approached the sessions and that helped me a lot. So I think today I have made good progress and tomorrow I will aim to continue in the same way. "


Pat Symonds - executive director of engineering (Renault F1):

"Firstly it's very nice to be here in Valencia racing this weekend. Secondly, we would like to welcome Romain to the team and I have to say I was very impressed with his progress today. He was pushing hard yet driving within himself and making steady progress. Fernando has had a strong day too; the car looks good and we're quite happy with the way the tyres are behaving. All in all it has been a satisfactory Friday."
