Herta on qualifying:
"We were doing the rain dance, and it just didn't pull us through. This is a good example of the effects of the new qualifying rule. In fact, we felt a few of the new rules today, as we had to end the practice session early because of the red flag rule. We had about three hot laps out of the eleven laps we completed in the qualifying session. I know we could have pulled much more out of the car if we had just had the opportunity out there. It was looking decent up until the last three minutes of the second session, it was a long three minutes."
