Tony Kanaan on the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:
"Last year we had our greatest success at St. Petersburg as a race team, as promoters, everything. Everyone was talking about that success and it will be hard to match it. That success was hard enough to do once and sometimes something like that only happens once. I'm excited to be back on a street course. The atmosphere at St. Petersburg is very exciting and I'm looking forward to getting there and competing."

Eric Cowdin, Race Engineer, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone, on the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:
"When undertaking a street circuit you have to give the driver a car that he can take by the throat and jockey around the course. It's like going from the splitting-the-diamond mentality that you take when preparing for a speedway to the swinging-the-big-hammer approach to dealing with the bumps and curbs that you encounter at a street circuit."
