Comments from the Toro Rosso drivers after Friday practices for the Canadian Grand Prix

Tonio Liuzzi:

"I spent the morning learning the circuit, as I have never been here before. The track was very dirty so I just did a few laps to get a feel for the car. We made some changes for the second session and I think we moved forward in the right direction all the time. I am learning the track quite quickly but I think that tomorrow I can still improve and get more out of the car. We seem quite competitive and the car was very good even though we will struggle for top speed here with the V10."

Scott Speed:

"I was on a long run at the end of the second session, so the lap time doesn't mean much. As expected, the track here gets better as the day goes on. We had a good test session in Monza and we thought we might be able to do something good here and I think we could be surprisingly competitive."

"We are not worried about brakes: with the reduction in power I think it's less of an issue than it used to be. The balance of the car is pretty good. This track is about the trade-off between top speed and stability. The car is lively here and sliding, and you have to ride the kerbs and our car seems to be doing all that quite well right now."

Neel Jani:

"The morning was really good, staying on one set of tyres all the time. I think we made some useful improvements, then this afternoon I did the usual long run. I was a bit unlucky in that on two of my quickest laps I encountered traffic. But the important thing is that we got good tyre comparison results. At one point I had a brake problem, but it did not cost much time."
