Kimi Raikkonen finished fourth for Team RED BULL SAUBER PETRONAS in today's Canadian Grand Prix, but Nick Heidfeld was the victim of an accident on the second lap that eliminated him from the race.

Nick Heidfeld
Going into the third corner on the second lap Irvine hit my rear tyre and spun me into the wall. He was far from being alongside me, but I guess he was pushing hard because he was on a two-stop strategy. It's a real shame because the car felt good on the formation lap and the first lap of the race, and I was really looking forward to the race. Looking at the result it should have been easy to score some more points today. I'm hoping that my luck changes for the next race.

Kimi Raikkonen
I'm really pleased to finish in fourth place again. After Verstappen passed me on the opening lap I settled down to a good rhythm until my rear tyres began to go off. Then Zonta hit the back of my car on the straight. I was really lucky not to go off. Once we got a new set of tyres on the car it began handling really well again and I was able to pace myself easily to keep Alesi behind me in the closing stages. I think we proved again today what a good car the C20 is.

Peter Sauber (Team Principal)
This is another fantastic result for us, to score another three points and to reaffirm our competitive form while moving up to fourth place in the World Championship for Constructors. Kimi Raikkonen did a great job, especially with a damaged rear wing, while Nick Heidfeld was unlucky as he too should have been in the points.
