“Overall, we had an okay day. We didn’t have any big problems per se. We primarily worked on the balance of the Marlboro car to make it more consistent and as easy to drive as possible given Sunday is going to be a real endurance race. We’ll continue to work on the car tonight and I feel we’re in good shape for tomorrow’s qualifying session. ”

“This morning’s practice session gave us the chance to work on our qualifying set-up and we had fairly good results as I was able to run a 231.935 mph (third fastest time in the morning session). This afternoon we tried to work on the race set-up, but it was difficult to gauge our progress as there was quite a bit of traffic. I’m confident that we can put it at the front of the grid tomorrow.”
