25-May: At the post Qualifying press conference for the Monaco GP, Juan Pablo Montoya was happy with the car and the changes they made to it and said "The car's been behaving really well. We did some changes through the morning and everything we've done has been in the right direction so it makes things a lot easier. We did a couple of changes in qualifying and picked up a massive amount of time right at the end. The time was there since the beginning. It's a matter of putting it together and I did."
As for the 0.4 second advantage he has over David Coulthard, he said "It's pretty much but DC didn't have his last run so it could have been a tenth of even less or he could have been in front. I've got to say I was very lucky in that perspective. We'll see. If those four tenths will stay that way tomorrow it will be very nice but it's a difficult race here."
Montoya denied that he didn't like this circuit but last year was a disaster for him and said "I never said I didn't like it. Last year was a disaster from every point you can think of. The car wasn't working well, I shunted the car in practice, I shunted the car in the race as well. I've got to say so far so good. When the car is behaving well, every circuit feels good."
He added that he enjoys street circuits and that most of wins in CART were on street circuits and said "Most of my wins came on street circuits and I did one in F3000 as well. It's just a matter of getting it together. Formula One on a street circuit is pretty difficult. It's a lot different than anything else because the speed is so much higher. You start getting used to it, you learn to work with the engineer better and you can maximise your performance."
Juan Pablo is hoping to win this first race of the season and said "It would be nice to get the first one of the year here. It didn't quite work out in some of the races when I had a chance to win but it's a matter of time, I think. The car looks really good, the tyres are working really well. Hopefully we can have a good day tomorrow."

David Coulthard indicated that this track suites their car as they car more downforce and said "I think the nature of the track suits the car a bit better and obviously the Michelin tyres are working very well on this track. We always felt that, given the performance of the car when we first tested it pre-season, that we had a bit more downforce and obviously that would be beneficial on tracks where you are running full downforce."
David believes this is his best chance so far to score a victory and said "Well there is a long way to go in the season and you never know how the car will develop. But certainly if you look at the first few races we haven't been that competitive that we could genuinely be going for the front spot and I think today, obviously, we were very competitive all the way through qualifying so yeah, you have got to say that so far this is the best chance we have of victory."

Michael Schumacher admitted that they were a bit behind all weekend but still believes they have a chance and said "At the end of the day, we have been a little behind probably all weekend. You see a lot of Michelin drivers at the top whereas normally there are a few Bridgestones there. It's the nature of the situation. We've said many times it will not continue like it has been in previous races. It will turn around and it has happened and that's what we have to face. But we're not too worried. We're not miles off, we still have an opportunity in third position. It's a long race in front of us.
I think we can be reasonably competitive tomorrow, we hope at least that will be the case, and if not then we have to simply drive home and see how many points we can score."
