Free Practice for the 2002 Canadian Grand Prix took place in Montreal today. Under sunny skies, the OrangeArrows team had a relatively trouble-free day, with Heinz-Harald Frentzen and Enrique Bernoldi ending the sessions in 10th and 13th places respectively.

Heinz-Harald Frentzen

"I had a pretty productive day today, working on race balance throughout both sessions. The car certainly feels good here in race set-up. I'm now looking forward to tomorrow when we will fine-tune the car for qualifying."

Enrique Bernoldi

"In general today was okay. I lost a bit of time this morning with a hydraulic problem but still managed to get through the job list so I'm pleased about that. The brakes we have here take a bit of getting used to but overall the car feels good. I think the changes made to the circuit are positive ones."

Graham Taylor, Chief Race Engineer, OrangeArrows

"Well we ran through our programme and had a constructive day. Enrique had a small hydraulic leak this morning that stopped him on the track and we also spent a bit of time in the garage changing gear ratios but that was well worth doing. Our balance was great on the circuit when it was 'green' but, as the rubber goes down and the temperatures go up, we start to lose the balance. We've got a fair bit of work to do tonight to get on top of that. Enrique is struggling with the brakes a little but he'll be fine once he gets used to them."
