Sunday Post-Race

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Finished 9th:

"Our fuel strategy was sequenced the same as Paul's and Christian's, but we didn't get the fuel mileage that Paul did. Another yellow would have helped us, but obviously that didn't happen and we had to come in at the end. I think tire wear was a factor for everyone. We held on to some points, but it's still disappointing."

Top-10 Finishers:

1. Paul Tracy 2. Dario Franchitti 3. Michael Andretti 4. Max Papis 5. Bryan Herta 6. Mauricio Gugelmin 7. Christian Fittipaldi 8. Richie Hearn 9. Tony Kanaan 10. Scott Pruett
