Airton Dare, #1 Banestado Lola:
"The car was a little bit better this morning. We had a problem with grip this afternoon, but we are working in the right direction. Track conditions will be different tomorrow for qualifying, but I think we have a top-10 car right now."

"I'm very pleased. We made good progress today. We worked quite a bit with the balance of the car and my confidence. I feel we probably have one of the best cars for the race. I think we can qualify towards the top and hopefully be very strong in the race."
