"There's no question that we're down on power. The car was better off of the corners this morning, but we can only make up so much time (in the corner). I was able to improve my time on the second set of tires, but it wasn't quite enough for the pole. Third is not a bad starting position for the race. We need good pit stops, and at the end of the day Marlboro Team Penske needs to collect as many championship points as possible."

-- Third fastest qualifying time - 57.944 sec.
-- This is Castroneves' fourth top-three qualifying position this season.
