A1 Team Canada elected to skip the morning practice session to conserve tyres following A1 Grand Prix's decision to hold back a set of slicks per team following yesterday's wet running. The decision was debatable when Sean McIntosh felt the lack of track time and struggled down in 17th until the final session when a blistering time - fourth fastest of the day - shot him up to 7th.

Sean McIntosh:

"I think we got hurt a bit this morning with not being able to run with the tyre situation. I had to use the first two sessions to learn how to go and with the new tyres I was starting to pick up bits and pieces. We picked up a second from the third to fourth runs which is quite big. It's too bad that we couldn't have done two of those laps because we'd have been right up there in the top three so I'm happy with that last lap but next time we need to focus on being able to do that twice because with the aggregate qualifying you have to be up there in both. The traffic situation's got better. I think we're all getting used to it and not going out together and being good at getting out of the way when they're needed to.

"For tomorrow seventh is a good place to start – it's going to be my fourth race that I've started in that slot so hopefully we can move ourselves up in the Sprint race and get a good starting position for the Feature race. "
