"This is a really interesting track. I'm having a lot of fun out there getting to know my way around. Hopefully, with the work we'll do in our engineering meetings today we'll be able to go faster tomorrow and move up the grid for the race."

Keith Wiggins - Managing Director
"We invested quite a bit of time leading up to this event in creating track simulations on the computer that would help us with the basic set up on the car. I'm happy to say that our simulations were 'spot on'. Everything on the car side is going as we expected. Now we just have to keep working at fine-tuning it so that we can move up the grid for Sunday."
