Alex Tagliani on the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

"Last year I literally found out that I was going to be driving in the St. Petersburg race on Wednesday before the event and I hadn't been in a car since Australia the season prior. I flew to St. Petersburg, jumped in the car and we qualified seventh. Just one position from being in the fast six so we were pretty happy. I like the track and I think we can be very competitive and we know now where we stand as a team so there wont' be any surprises. I've just had to be patient over these last two weeks since Brazil and then when we arrive in St. Pete, we will do what we do best like we did in Sao Paulo. The testing in Sebring and our outing in Brazil will certainly help some with information for this weekend. Any data that we take from our testing and races will make us more prepared for the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg and that will help us out for sure."
