The bright sunshine brought a change of fortune for the Super Aguri F1 Tem today. The team completed its race day preparations without any issues this morning and is now ready to compete in its first Canadian Grand Prix in the glorious setting of the Gilles Villeneuve circuit on Île Notre Dame tomorrow.

Takuma Sato:

"This morning's practice session went well, however I am a little bit disappointed with my lap times from the Qualifying session compared to our rivals as I was expecting to be closer to their times this weekend. Having said that, I think that we did everything we could in our preparation for tomorrow and I believe that I have a good set-up for the race, so I am looking forward to it."

Franck Montagny:

"I am quite happy with our results today. We have come a long way with the car since yesterday and I am quite happy with the set-up we have found. It is not going to be easy for us again tomorrow, but I like this circuit and the car is quite nice to drive here, a bit slow, but at least it is not so hard to keep the car on the track, so I think it will be a fun race."

Aguri Suzuki, Team Principal:

"The team has done a very good job today. The cars' performance is low and we are not happy to be two seconds off the nearest car's pace, but on the positive side we did not encounter any problems and we completed our planned race preparations. The team is working extremely well together and growing stronger with every race, so I am happy about that and hope that we can achieve another two-car finish tomorrow."
