Tiago Monteiro start 12th at Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio

After finishing P6 in morning practice and P1 in the 10-minute warm up, FDR rookie Tiago Monteiro picked up one spot from yesterday's qualifying and will start 12th on tomorrow's grid for the Grand Prix of Mid-Ohio.

"We're definitely improving a lot," said the young driver. "As you saw this morning, we were P6 and in the 10-minute warm up we were P1. It's just so tight that you have to have everything perfect at just the right moment. We had a bit of difficulty getting the tire pressure up during qualifying, so we lost some there. I needed more laps to get the tires perfect. We're up one spot from yesterday; every little gain helps. The point is, we're getting better and better. Tomorrow won't be easy as it's difficult to overtake here. But, it's a long race so anything can happen."
