Herta on qualifying:

"It looked like we were going to get lucky there until the end. To drop 10 positions in the last 25 seconds of the session was incredibly disappointing, almost a carbon copy of Long Beach. We have had a lot of bad luck this season, and we just can't seem to shake it. It's too bad it rained today, because I think I have a pretty good car. We were right up there for most of the session, my last two laps would have been quite a bit faster and I was blocked. I came up to Alex on my second to last lap and he wouldn't let me by, so I backed off, knowing that I time for another lap to space myself out. I was on the final lap, it was a great lap, and Alex spun and then came back on the track right in front of me, so that pretty much blew that lap as well. Looking on the bright side, if I am going to start toward the back, this is probably the best place for it."
