Following is a quote from Cristiano da Matta, driver of the No. 6 Havoline Toyota-Lola-Bridgestone Champ car regarding his upcoming test in Toyota's Formula One race car in mid-May as reported in AutoSport:

"This is my fourth season of working with Toyota and we have a very good relationship. I am thankful that they are giving me the opportunity to test their F1 car and I am also thankful that Newman/Haas Racing is allowing me to accomplish one of my goals. I've driven almost every kind of open-wheel race car and testing an F1 car is a great opportunity for me. There is a break in the schedule this month and we are only running two tests so the timing is good. I'm looking forward to the experience."
