Comments from the Red Bull drivers after Friday practices for the Canadian Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"We were suffering with telemetry problems during the second session so we didn't do much running today. This track is similar to Silverstone where you need overall efficiency of the car. There are a lot of high speed sections here, so it remains to be seen where we end up."

Christian Klien:

"I only did an installation lap this morning, as the track's not used very often so it's very green with no grip. In the second session, I went out twice for around five timed laps each run, although the track was still pretty dirty."

"It was quite tricky to drive and I struggled with rear wheel locking in the braking areas, and the car was difficult to handle on corner entry. We improved that a little bit and will work to improve the car's balance during the weekend. Overall, it was okay."

Robert Doornbos:

"It's the first time that I'd driven on this circuit today, and it's great I must say - a very nice track, that's really good to drive. We did a good job and had consistent long runs, but it was a shame that we weren't as quick as we wanted to be. We were struggling a little to get the maximum out of the tyres - but the guys are looking into that now."

"I wish the session could be longer as, just as you start to enjoy the conditions when there's a bit of rubber down and a little more grip, it's already over. But, it's good to drive here and I wish the guys luck for the weekend."
