West McLaren Mercedes drivers Kimi Raikkonen and David Coulthard swapped fastest times during today's two free practice sessions with Kimi ending up fastest with a time of 1:47.196 completing 20 laps. David was second with 1:47.356 and did 29 laps. The first practice session was delayed by an hour and reduced to 30 minutes due to the foggy weather conditions not allowing the medical helicopter to land at a hospital if required.

KIMI RAIKKONEN

"It's too early to say how we will do this weekend, but we had a productive practice. I lost a bit of time at the end of the first session when my car had a hydraulics problem, but we fixed it during the break. The car was working well and I'm pleased with the work we have gone through and am looking forward to qualifying."

DAVID COULTHARD

"There have been Fridays this year when we have been fastest so let's wait and see what happens tomorrow. We were following a specific programme to evaluate the tyres and gained a lot of useful data."

RON DENNIS

"A productive first day of practice."

NORBERT HAUG

"A good first day of practice on which we managed to do many laps. We are heading in the right direction."
