Michel Jourdain Jr.

"We're still a little far away from the front and from where we want to be, but I'm happy to be here at RuSPORT and happy to be at Long Beach. I'm very proud of my team and the work we've done in a very short time. Everyone here as done such an incredible job in just three weeks. We're going to make some changes for tomorrow and then get ready for the race on Sunday."

Bruce Ashmore, Race Engineer

"What can I say, we need to go faster. We're all learning each other and getting to know the car. It wasn't too bad, but it's not where we want to be. We'll take today and now go forward."

Jeremy Dale, Team President

"Considering how quickly this has come together with Michel, and having to put a team together in the space of three weeks and adding new personnel, it has not been a bad day for us. He was on pole here last year, so clearly he's capable of a lot more. We have a lot more to give him. We'll get it done for him; it'll just take a bit of time."
