ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT IZOD INDYCAR SERIES NOTES AND QUOTES, POST-PRACTICE HONDA GRAND PRIX OF ST. PETERSBURG
MARCO ANDRETTI, #26 TEAM VENOM ENERGY DRINK CAR
Ended the practice session in P7 "The second practice session wasn't as productive as we had hoped for the Venom car. We had a good start this morning and made some good changes from the first session to the second session but didn't find the positive changes we needed during the second session. We'll think over things tonight and get back at it tomorrow."
MIKE CONWAY, #27 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
Finished practice in P3 "I'm fairly happy with that. We were just trying to get through a lot of things, but it was difficult with the yellow flags and so on. But, the GoDaddy.com car has worked well since we got here. It's just a case of chipping away at it every day to get some more speed out of it. I think we've got some good things to try tomorrow morning. We'll try to do our homework tonight and come out a bit stronger tomorrow."
RYAN HUNTER-REAY, #28 TEAM DHL/SUN DROP CITRUS SODA CAR
Finished the session in P17 "We had a lap good enough for P5 with the DHL/Sun Drop car and then I clipped the right rear tow link, and bent it. With these street circuits, it only takes a mistake of a couple inches and that was enough to sideline us for the rest of the session. We had a good car this morning and we just need to go back to that. Everything looks good."
DANICA PATRICK, #7 TEAM GoDaddy.com CAR
Ended the practice session in P10 "The GoDaddy.com car is off to a good start today. I think we still have some work to do, but I think tomorrow's qualifying session will be solid. It's great to be back in my IndyCar and in St. Pete."
