Servia and Dominguez on the Third and Sixth row Provisionally at Houston

HOUSTON, Texas -- April 20th, 2007 -- The Forsythe Duo of Oriol Servia and Mario Dominguez qualified sixth and 12th provisionally today for the Grand Prix of Houston at JAGflo Speedway at Reliant Park, Round 3 of the 2007 Champ Car World Series. The Forsythe Team returns to the Lone Star State hoping to repeat the dominating performance they put on during the 2006 event that had Dominguez on pole position and also on the third step of the podium behind teammate Paul Tracy. Things didn't go quite as expected today however as Servia and Dominguez struggled with handling issues in this bumpy temporary street circuit.

Qualified Sixth Provisionally

"It was a decent lap; we still have some speed left in the car though. I believe that we can be in the Top-3; I don't think we have enough for pole position yet but tomorrow is another day. The car is pretty good; we were a few tenths quicker but just got caught out by the reds. But considering where I was last Friday it is an excellent result! During the morning session we had some minor mechanical issues but the Forsythe Team did a great job repairing them and we had a clean run this afternoon, I expect to be very quick tomorrow."

Qualified 12th Provisionally

"We just haven't found the grip that we need for this track. We've made some changes that have improved the car but we just need more grip overall, specially coming out of the corners. The track is much better than last year, it is still bumpy but they have improved it quite a bit, especially around turn 5 which makes the whole lap way more bearable. I think once the track picks up more grip tomorrow our car should be a lot quicker so we are just going to keep working hard and give it all we've got tomorrow."
