Hello, everyone! Well, interesting day at Magny Cours. We saw that Michelin had the better of the Bridgestones in today's practice sessions. BAR and Jordan both seemed to have trouble getting their cars setup...in fact, Minardi-Asiatech rookie Mark Webber was within 4/100ths of a second of Jacques Villeneuve's BAR-Honda!

You can, perhaps, argue that some of the Michelin shod cars ran light at the end to set good times, but these positions pretty much demonstrated the general performance level from today's field.

We'll just have to cross our fingers and hope for some good luck tomorrow during qualifying; possibly a spot of rain, if possible??? :)

On an up note, head over to http://www.hondaf1.com/english/fans/audio_video.php to listen to Olivier Panis' pre-race interview, courtesy of Honda F1!
