8-June: At the post Qualifying press conference for the Canadian Grand Prix, Juan Pablo Montoya was happy with his performance even though he though he could have gone a bit quicker and and said "It was a very good lap. We thought it was going to rain a bit earlier so we went quite early to put a decent lap in and make sure if it did rain we had a good lap, then Michael went and did the same time as in the morning. I knew I had a bit of time to improve, actually quite a lot, even from the morning, I gave it a good go and actually it was quite good. But if we really put the sectors together we could have gone a bit quicker as well. It will be quite an interesting race tomorrow, I think."
Montoya is hoping that the launch control on his Williams will not put him down a few places tomorrow and said "I think we should be alright. From what they tell me they have made the necessary changes to make it right, and if it goes right it goes right, if it doesn't it doesn't. What can we do really?."
Montoya indicated that the gap to Ferrari has closed here mainly due to the tyres and said "I think the tyres play a big part, a big role, and we have to see how competitive we are everywhere. There are places where the Ferrari has got a big advantage and some other places where the Michelin tyres do a great job. In the last two races the tyres have been fantastic and I think that has been the major difference."

Michael Schumacher was a bit disappointed with second and said "A little bit, but then we didn't get it together and that is the result of it."
He indicated that he had to abort his last run due to the rain as he wouldn't have improved on his time.
Michael remains confident for the race and said "We are always confident. We know we have a good car but then being second you have to somehow find your way through and that is going to be difficult."
Michael also indicated that their huge advantage has shrunk here and said "Yes it has. It is obvious I think. We have been up front for quite a while and now it has turned around. We have mentioned that many times to you guys and people are reluctant to believe that it could happen, but that is the way it is. There will be other circuits that may favour us, but here it is probably favouring them a little bit more than us."

Rubens Barrichello who crashed during practice was reasonably happy with 3rd on the grid and said "To be honest with you I was playing a bit of catch-up into the session because this morning I went off and in the morning I didn't really have much running so the car wasn't fantastic. On the last run I kept on trying but it was a little bit too slippery but I think all in all, as Michael said, we did a good job, Juan Pablo put in a good lap and he seemed to have a really good balance through the corners. I mean the guys did a fantastic job and our engine was running fantastically well today so we just hope for a better run tomorrow."
As for tomorrow, Barrichello dreams of winning and said "We have to dream of the best and the best is a win."
