Pedro de la Rosa - 21st: "It looks like we've taken a significant step forward here in Montreal. Our set-up is working well, our top speed is good and, overall, the car is working well. I'm happy that my mechanic is well, it's a huge relief because I was very worried for him. We were quicker than the Marussias in the morning and the afternoon but both the car and myself can improve. The rise in temperature expected for tomorrow is good for us we're struggling to heat up the tyres in the last sector and that will help us."
Narain Karthikeyan - 23rd: "Today wasn't a bad day, we made some changes to the car and it responded quite well. We improved a lot from the morning to the afternoon and we got the most out of what we had but we still have to improve tomorrow. I had a problem with the front left brake which didn't allow me to do a heavy fuel run so we'll have to work on that for tomorrow."
Luis Perez-Sala, team principal: "Before anything I would like to say that we're very relieved because our mechanic, Craig, is well after this morning's incident as we were all very worried. As for the racing, we tried out the wing that we specifically brought for this circuit and it seems like the car's balance is good and it's working as expected. Our only weak point was the brakes but it's something we're going to continue working on to improve. We're comfortably inside the 107 per cent, so this is confirmation that the wing is working well. Tomorrow we will evaluate again how the upgrades are performing but we're running well."
