"Despite the fact that we qualified in the top ten, we still feel that there's a lot more we can get out of the car. We'll need to really think through what changes we are going to make for tomorrow's qualifying. I'm sure we'll get there but we have a long way to go to get the car really working the way we want for the race on Sunday."

Roberto Moreno - Driver, Car 4

"Basically, it was very difficult to get in the proper position on track for a flyer during the last few laps due to traffic. I'd be just ready to launch and then I'd have to back off. It all came down to one lap at the end. The car was so much better after the last change we made and I was up quite a bit during the early part of the last lap. But I was being too greedy in trying to get more out of it and on the next corner I put two wheels out on the dirt which slowed me down in that corner and the next one too. But the car was so good that I was still able to make up all that lost time before the end of the lap and it was my best one! So on one hand, I'm quite disappointed because the car is much better than the lap time shows. For sure I could have gone 3/10th of a second faster - maybe more. But I'm also quite happy because I know we just touched some things to give me the speed we need to go even faster."
