Nokia Tyrrell Yamaha set to fight back

The Nokia Tyrrell Yamaha team heads to Montreal to fight back and regain its place in the top contenders for the Canadian Grand Prix.

After celebrating his birthday last week, Ukyo Katayama said: "I am fiercely determined to score a good result in Canada and forget my race in Monaco. The circuit is not difficult or technical, only straights linked by chicanes. We had a good test at Silverstone last Wednesday and continued to improve the balance of the car. I am delighted to go back to Montreal because there are many Japanese restaurants I can enjoy in the evenings!"

Looking forward to his first visit to Monaco, Mika Salo commented: "I am excited to go to Canada because I heard very good things about this country. I really want to perform well and score points in Motnreal. The team has been working so hard in the past weeks that I would like to reward them. Again I will be discovering a new track, but it cannot be as difficult as Monaco. I haven't trained yet with my computer game but I will start soon and be ready for this race!"

Harvey Postlethwaite, Managing Director - Engineering said: "We had a great start to the season with Mika's performance in Brazil and Argentina and we are delighted with the hydrolink suspension which is now fitted on both front and rear of the Tyrrell yamaha 023 since Monaco. We know that our problems lie elsewhere and we are workign hard to regain our position with the top contenders. Montreal is a circuit very similar to Imola [so] we have taken a number of steps to improve it on this type of track."
