Marco Andretti on the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:
"I'm very excited to get back on the St. Petersburg circuit. To be honest, even if I finish last I'd still enjoy it because I like that race track, and not just because I won there last year. You have to drive 99 percent; you can't overextend yourself, which is the case at any road course. But I really enjoy racing at St. Petersburg."

Eddie Jones, Race Engineer, #26 NYSE Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:
"Setting up the #26 NYSE car for a street course presents a different set of challenges. The driver has no margin for error, so you have to have a car that is very responsive to driver input. You have slow, 90- degree turns where traction coming off the corner for acceleration is important and you have to have a compliant suspension for dealing with the curbs and normal bumps that are usually found on a street circuit."
