Andretti Green Racing Australia race notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Well, it wasn't the way I wanted to end the 2008 season, but that's part of racing. There were a couple on-track incidents that I got tangled up in which caused me to become a lap down. But I have to thank the Motorola crew for all their hard work this weekend. We have accomplished a great deal this year and hope to come back in 2009 stronger and better."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"Unfortunately our right-rear suspension broke and it's a real shame. I didn't hit anything and I think it was just the stress on the part. We worked really hard after struggling the first couple of days and the Team 7-Eleven car was very good for the race. I think we could have finished on the podium so we're obviously disappointed."

Marco Andretti, #26 Blockbuster Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think we got everything we could have out of the Blockbuster car today and that's why I'm so disappointed. We came here to try and find some road course setups but I'm not sure we were able to accomplish that. I'd be happier if the car had the potential and I was unable to get anything out of it but that wasn't the case so I'm really disappointed. We know there is a lot of work to do in the offseason. We did not perform the way we wanted to on the road courses so we have to get better - myself included - in the offseason."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The Formula Dream car was really good today but what got us a top-10 finish was the race strategy. The yellow came out at one point and I was able to pass a few cars and stay upfront. I'm looking forward to my second season with 2009 season with Andretti Green Racing."
