Comments from the Red Bull drivers after Thursday practices for the Monaco Grand Prix

David Coulthard:

"It's encouraging to get up to speed on the track today, evaluate the car and not touch the barriers. I had a little concern regarding the handling of the brakes at the start, but we'll get a hold on that by tonight."

Christian Klien:

"I had a problem with the power steering in the first session, so the car was pretty heavy to this morning. In the afternoon, I did some more runs to get used to the circuit."

"It's very challenging here and you can gain a lot of time by doing more and more laps. I still need to work on the car, as I'm struggling with the balance."

Robert Doornbos:

It's great to be in Monaco and to drive an F1 car here. Every year I drive a car that's faster than the one the year before, so that's promising for 2007! I really enjoyed today."

"It was a shame about all the red flags, but you have to expect it in a place like this. It messed up our programme this afternoon and prevented us from pushing for the fastest time, but we're still up there so I'm happy."
