Tasman Post Race Notes

Tony Kanaan, #21 LCI Reynard-Honda (27th - Out of race with engine failure on Lap 29 while running in eighth position): "It was a good start. I planned to make a move and it worked, but Alex (Zanardi) got me at the outside of Turn One. I was very happy to pass everyone and lead the first corner at least. It is a shame. We had a pretty good car. I had a little bit of loose but sometimes in the race, with the first set of tires, you need to use them to learn and we started getting better every time. We were going to change the tire pressure on the first pit stop but we didn't have a chance to do that. Unfortunately we had an engine problem. I don't know what happened. It just blew. It's a shame because I really wanted to do good here in Brazil." Steve Horne, Team Owner: "As far as I'm concerned, I think we made a major step forward in all areas. Tony did a great job here and it's just unfortunate that we had a small engine problem. I think things are only going to get better from here on out."
