Nick Heidfeld and Felipe Massa finished in 14th and 16th places respectively after today's first free practice sessions for the Canadian Grand Prix.

Nick Heidfeld:

"The positions don't look so good, but we were doing a lot of work for the race and for sure we are in a lot better shape than we were in Monaco. We did a lot of long runs and I'm quite happy with what we achieved. Today was not about lap times."

Felipe Massa:

"It was okay for a first day. This is a nice track, no problem to learn. It was still pretty dirty, however, and on old tyres my car was quite nervous and I made a few mistakes. But for sure the track will be a lot better tomorrow, and I'm confident we will be competitive."

Peter Sauber (Team Principal):

"We were able to do a lot of good preparation for the race during the two practice sessions today. Both cars together completed more than 100 laps, without any mechanical problems. We did a lot of work on brake configurations because historically this is always a hard race in that area, and we are satisfied with the results."
