"Marlboro Team Penske had a reasonably good qualifying session today. I wasn't extremely happy with the car this morning so we made changes for this afternoon. I was a little bit frustrated during qualifying because the car had oversteer, and I kept making mistakes in the last three turns. The car was probably quicker than our time, I just couldn't get it all together but that's what qualifying is all about. We need to improve the oversteer, otherwise we are in pretty good shape for the race tomorrow."

"I was slightly frustrated because I couldn't get a clear lap. It was also difficult to get heat into the tires because we had several red flags during the session. The track conditions had changed from this morning so we fine-tuned the Marlboro car and we were able to improve it, but we couldn't go for it at the end due to the last red flag. With that said, we are in a pretty good starting position for the race. It's a narrow circuit so we need to be careful and make sure we're in the points at the end."
