CHAMPCAR/CART: Cleveland Qualifying Friday Tasman Notes

Tony Kanaan, ...

Tony Kanaan, #21 LCI Reynard-Honda (Qualified 18th): "In the morning, everybody had a problem with new tires. Every time we put new tires on the red flag came out. I think that is why we finished sixth in the session, but I also think our place is in the top 10. We made a big improvement in the car but we still need to go one more step. I think the track will be better as well tomorrow, so we are going to try everything for tomorrow."

Airton Dare, #1 Banestado/LCI Lola (Qualified 9th): "There is a big difference in the car going from high to low downforce. It is very hard to get used to the car with this change. The track is good. I like this track and the high speed corners."

Cristiano da Matta, #2 Medley/LCI Lola (Qualified 2nd): "My car is very bad over the bumps, but you expect that at a place like this. The track for sure is one of the most fun tracks to drive around. Since I have been in America, I can only put Laguna (Seca) ahead of this one. I really enjoy this track. What we need to work on is making the car better over the bumps and to overcome the problem we have with oversteer right now. Then we'll see if we can do a better job tomorrow."
