"My first time in Australia, it was a very challenging race, it's a physical racetrack and and I'm happy I finished with a top 10. Every lap I was pushing the hardest that I could, I know there's obviously some corners that I need to improve next time we race here. My team did a great job and we had pretty good pit stops. Surfer's Paradise it's one of the best venues on Champ Car, it was a great experience for me."

" Honestly, this was my best race. We seemed to have a pretty good car in the first stint and I managed toget by some guys. I took my chance; I said I was going to go for it, fightingtill the end. Oriol was behind me and I was running really hard and as fast as Icould the whole time. Later, before the 2nd pit stop I started to have problems with 2nd gear. Unfortunately, I couldn't push really hard anymore. It was quite frustrating, althoughour speed andstrategy should have allowed us to finish much higher up. The results for thisrace don't really show much, but I know the podium is not very far, I will get there."
