"The Marlboro car was good right from the start this morning. We were pushing really hard all day -- I don't know if the rest of these guys are 'sandbagging' or what, but we were giving it our all. We are trying to go as fast as we can and find the limit because that's what it's going to take to get the pole tomorrow."

-- Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, #3 2001 Marlboro Honda Reynard
-- Fastest practice time - 68.838 sec.

"Since I joined Marlboro Team Penske in the winter of 1999, we've been successful with our road course set-up especially here at Laguna Seca. We were able to work on the balance of the car throughout the sessions, and had made gains by the end of the day. I feel like we are in good shape for tomorrow's qualifying run."

-- Gil de Ferran, Marlboro Team Penske, #1 2001 Marlboro Honda Reynard
-- Second fastest practice time - 69.345 sec.
