Friday Provisional Qualifying:

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Qualified 5th:

"We had to fight with the weather. (There was light rain at the start of qualifying.) It wasn't a bad qualifying, and unfortunately we can't control the weather. We had a couple of good runs, and the track got better the last five minutes. Unfortunately, everybody's tires were gone at that point. I think I could do better than what I did. I'm not talking about setup, but about myself. It was those kind of conditions, like winning in a lottery. The only thing that's changed since we tested here is the track. I think we have a decent car. It's consistent and for the race, that's what you need." kk
