Yasukawa on the Race:
"I am happy to leave here with some points, it has been a tough weekend. I didn't really take the start very aggressively because I wanted to make sure I could be there at the end and walk away with some points. We struggled with understeer, but the car was better than it has been. I have finished every race and we kept our position in the points so that is the good thing. I am looking forward to Chicago, particularly after my win in Milwaukee, it would be great to have a repeat performance."
