Thursday press conference - Canadian GP - Pt.2

I don't know. Possibly even wet, yeah, because our car is really quick in the wet. I've been feeling very comfortable in the wet this year, maybe even wet, yeah.

Q: (Ernesto Nigro – F1 Plus.com).
In-season testing over the use of simulators; how much more effective would that be and would you welcome it back?

Felipe Massa:
It would be welcomed, definitely. A simulator is always what we have, to try to understand something, but it's always a simulator so when you are in the real situation on the track, you definitely understand a lot better so it would be welcome.

Nico Rosberg:
Just as Felipe said, it's so difficult to get the simulator one hundred percent realistic so there are always several things that are better when you test the real car, more accurate.

Giedo van der Garde:
I think it's also good for a rookie to have more track time, of course. It's how it is now.

Q: (Olivier Arbour - Radio Canada).
To all of you: what do you think about Sergio Perez's driving; do you share Button's view that he should maybe calm down, or are you more on Raikkonen's side?

Giedo van der Garde:
If nobody comments I will comment. I know Checco quite well, we were teammates together in 2010. I think he's a real fighter, you know, and he's a guy who wants to win – everybody likes to win – but of course how he raced in Monaco, sometimes he did well, sometimes going over (the top) but I think it's a tough call.

Pastor Maldonado:
No comment.

Q: (Livio Oricchio – O Estado de Sao Paulo).
This subject is old but it's interesting to hear from all of you who never won the World Championship up to now, about the Wall of Champions here. Is there any particular reasons it attracts World Champions there, is there any technical challenge that explains all the incidents we have there?

Nico Rosberg:
It's a nice little legend, it's a difficult corner, yeah, because if you go in a little bit too fast you get that second kerb too much and you're in the wall, so it's a very very challenging corner, but there's no reason to explain why a lot of World Champions have gone in there.

Felipe Massa:
It's two different things: it's a different corner, it's a corner that if you try to be a bit too aggressive you can hit the wall but it's two different things.
