Andretti Green Racing Birmingham test summary

Driver:  Danica Patrick

Car: #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"As you know, the road courses have been my weak spot in racing, but with that being said, I think we were able to learn some things that will help me to continue to strengthen my road course races. It's not really easy to see with my lap times where they are, but I really think we are on the right track with the Motorola car. I'm glad that I was able to do a road course test with my new race engineer, Eddie (Jones), before we head to the Honda Grand Prix of St. Pete in a couple of weeks."

Driver:  Tony Kanaan

Car: #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"The great thing about a test is not having the pressure of lap times and who is the fastest. We are only concerned about figuring out what we need to make the 7-Eleven car better overall. We need to understand the changes that we make and learn what or what not to do to in order to make the car better. So, it's a win-win for us and the team as a whole."

Driver:  Marco Andretti

Car: #26 Meijer Dallara/Honda/Firestone

Marco Andretti: "I think the Meijer car ran really well these past couple of days. I think we are taking the right approach at this test; we are making big changes and getting clear results. There are times during a race weekend where we need to make these types of big changes and time is not on our side. So, I think we are going to be able to show up this season with a better idea of our baselines and that will allow us to be a step ahead."

Driver: Hideki Mutoh
Car: #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone

"I think we had an overall good test at Barber the past few days. We were able to make some changes to the car that both were good and not so good, but we will be able to use all the information that we got, and use it throughout the season. I think we will be using a lot of the information at the Honda Grand Prix of St. Pete. The Formula Dream team has worked really hard during the off-season and I feel good about going into the first race of the year."
