FORMULA DREAM/PANASONIC DRIVER HIDEKI MUTOH FINISHED 15TH IN THE INDY GRAND PRIX OF ALABAMA PRESENTED BY LEGACY CREDIT UNION

Hideki Mutoh, No. 06 Formula Dream/Panasonic Dallara/Honda/Firestone:

"It was a very, very tough race for the Formula Dream / Panasonic team. The outcome of the race was all based on qualifying. The strategy didn't work out to get us to the front. The car was very good and the guys did a fantastic job in the pits and gained me two spots one time but I made a mistake in the chicane and went wide and lost a couple of positions there later. I was a lap down to Dixon and Helio at the end but I was able to stay with them. If we had a good qualifying and a good race today I think we could have had a much stronger finish. The good thing is that we know we have the speed and we will stay focused to have a good weekend in Long Beach."
