Friday Provisional Qualifying

Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard - Qualified 8th:

"We made a huge improvement to the car, but we are still far away from pole position. I was fighting with understeer and power oversteer. We need to make a few changes, but it's not bad for the first day. The track will be better tomorrow, and hopefully that will fix some of my problems. We need to work with the track conditions."
