Spare/T-Car (C20-04)

Kimi Raikkonen and Nick Heidfeld finished in sixth and 12th places respectively after today's first free practice sessions for the San Marino Grand Prix.

Peter Sauber (Team Principal)
We completed our planned programme today, and the C20 proved well suited both to Bridgestone's new tyres and to the fourth different type of track that we have visited this year. It is encouraging to maintain the momentum we have demonstrated so far, and Kimi's time in particular was impressive for a driver who had never seen the circuit before.

Nick Heidfeld (Driver)
Generally I'm quite happy with the car. It was very competitive in the wet this morning and would have been quicker still except that we ran out of time to make a change in set-up. My final run on new tyres this afternoon was interrupted initially by yellow flags and after that I just didn't get a lap together. Though my lap time might not reflect it, the car is also competitive here in the dry so I know I can go quicker.

Kimi Raikkonen (Driver)
It's been a pretty good day for me. I didn't find the track particularly difficult to learn, and the car was good all day. I started on wets then switched to intermediates this morning while I was learning my way round, and the track was slippery. Once it dried out I could really start to push, but my quick lap wasn't anything special.
