A1 Team Mexico is Feeling Good for Sunday

Algarve, Portugal April 11th, 2009. A1GP Team Mexico has overcome the problems they faced on Friday when the gas pump prevented the A1GP car Powered by Ferrari to reach high RPMs, and they have a positive feeling about Sunday's Sprint and Feature races. Today, the team was finally able to take the track of the new racetrack of Algarve, Portugal, with a car that is 100% fit. However, having lost Friday's practice has reduced the team's track time and they have had to work harder during the final practice today to set up the car for qualifying.

"I think our qualifying times for the first race do not reflect what we really have, because there were red flags caused by China and Switzerland that prevented us from improving our time," said Salvador Duran, the team's main driver. "Qualifying for the second race we made some progress, but not as much as we had wished for. Anyway, what's important is that we know that we as a team have room for improvement, while the other teams are already on their limits", added Duran.

Activities for the sixth round of the calendar finish tomorrow with the Sprint and Feature races, which will be broadcast by Canal Speed in Mexico and Latin America at 7:30 a.m., Central Mexico time.
