CHAMPCAR/CART: Montreal: Newman/Haas Racing Friday report

Sebastien Bourdais, No. 1 McDonald's Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "You know, it's just a very good feeling to be able to secure a front-row start like that for the McDonald's team. It's obviously extremely important to secure a front start position like that for us from now on, just to get the points we can. If we can grab a win, great. If we can't, we just move on and just think "championship."

Well, we left the McDonald's car the way we left it last year. The balance is really good. I'm happy. Oriol is very fast, too. It was close during this run. Last year we had a very good car, dominated the weekend, and couldn't go home with anything with the incident with AJ. Hopefully we can bring it home this time and score big points. That's all we're asking for."

Oriol Servia, No. 2 PacifiCare Ford-Cosworth/Lola/Bridgestone: "I don't want to be overconfident, but I have the feeling the PacifiCare team is going to be in good shape. We are obviously I think 4/10ths clear of everybody else. It's very impressive for the team. I'm just happy. This morning, every time I had a good lap, the red flag came out so it didn't count. In qualifying, I had a good lap on the last lap that was two-tenths of a second quicker and I thought it looked like was going to beat Sebastien, but I ran out of fuel in the last corner. But it's okay. I'm happy that the car is good. I still have tomorrow and Sunday. Things are going well. I'm very happy. Hopefully we're going to be on the podium again."
