"We worked on race set-up for most of the day. The track conditions are different than when we tested here last week; it's a bit warmer and a little more slippery. We tried to build on what we learned from the test, so hopefully we'll be in good shape for Sunday. Tomorrow we'll focus on qualifying and try to put the Marlboro Team Penske car at the front of the grid."

-- Gil de Ferran, Marlboro Team Penske, Two-Time CART Champion and 2003 Indianapolis 500 Winner
-- #6 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
-- Third fastest combined time - 20.0321 sec. (168.030 mph)

"We had the chance to work on both the qualifying and race set-ups today and I think the Marlboro Team Penske car is handling fine. We still have some work to do on the car, but we're not too far off. Tomorrow we'll continue working on our qualifying set-up in the morning. Hopefully, we'll get a good, clean qualifying run and be in solid shape for the race."

-- Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 & 2002 Indianapolis 500 Winner
