"We had a good session considering it was our first time on the track today. Towards the end of practice I spun in turn three and damaged the end plate on my rear wing. I was trying real hard to put in a fast lap and lifted off the brakes too soon. I brought out the red flag and received an eight-minute penalty. But the Marlboro car is looking very good, we improved with each lap and the track is improving so we should be strong tomorrow."

* Helio Castroneves, #3 Marlboro Honda Reynard
* Fifth fastest practice time, 75.350 sec.

"We had a good session this afternoon and we're very happy with the Marlboro car thus far. Although I'm suffering a bit from the heat, I was still able to run up front. Because of the traffic we weren't able to get our new tire run in at the end of the session, but we're in good shape for tomorrow."

* Gil de Ferran, #1 Marlboro Honda Reynard
* Eighth fastest practice time, 75.397 sec.
