Indy 500: Andretti Green Racing day three report

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I am pleased with the Motorola car on the first practice day. We had a fast lap the first run that we did, we were the only ones on the track at that time, so that is good. Then we went back out and I was not satisfied with the way the car felt, so we took it in. I was able to get some set up ideas from Marco and we went back out and the car felt better. I was able to get my fastest lap in the last few minutes of practice. The car is not 100 percent where it needs to be, but it is a long month and I am certain that my crew and I can get it where it needs to be."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"It was a very productive day for 7-Eleven team. It seems like we will get some rain tomorrow so we tried to run as many laps as possible. There are a few improvements we need to make on the car, but I am pretty pleased with it. I was glad Marco did a good job out there. It was a good day for AGR today."

Marco Andretti, #26 Forsythe Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"The Indiana Jones/Blockbuster car is on it so far, but unfortunately it's still early. But we'll take it. Obviously I had a very big tow, but I think you need the mechanical balance to be able to stay flat so you can get a good time. I've been very pleased with the car so far. It was a good start but this place changes."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"We were able to test many setups today so it was a very productive testing day for Formula Dream team. I wish we were able to set a better time but we learned a lot from all the changes we made so we hope we will be able to set a faster time as we get closer to the Qualifying day."
