Montreal, 9th June - Once again today the sun is out over the Ile Notre Dame and the weather should remain unchanged with temperatures just over the 20 degree mark.

As usual, it was a very early start for all the teams. At 6.45 the engines on the two F2001 Ferraris were fired up, while at 8, the first briefing took place with Jean Todt, the drivers and engineers. On the schedule for the day for the 90 available minutes of free practice is a continuation of the tyre comparison programme, as well as looking for the outright performance required for this afternoon's qualifying session. Both Michael Schumacher's car (chassis 210) and Rubens Barrichello's (chassis 212) are fitted with the qualifying specification engines. A huge crowd is expected. Already at 7 this morning there were long queues of race fans crossing the bridge which links the metro station to the circuit. As on all tracks of the world, the red of Ferrari is the dominant colour on the clothing and flags of the fans.
