Bolt Failure Costs Dominguez and the TECATE car a Top-Five Finish, Figge Hangs on for 13th without Brakes

Alex Figge #29 Conrad Jupiters/DP01/Cosworth/Bridgestone

Alex on the race: "I am a bit disappointed in our result but we had a good pace and it is unfortunate we had problems with my brakes at the end. We ran strong in the race and I was feeling confident and enjoying the race. I think I was running a bit aggressive when the brakes went, I probably should have backed off a bit at that point. I feel like we took a step forward this weekend. It's a tough place here and coming in as a rookie with a rookie race engineer is tough, but we made a lot of developments throughout the weekend. My stops were great and my guys have done a great job all year there. I am really excited to get to Mexico City."

Mario Dominguez #28 TECATE/DP01/Cosworth/Bridgestone

Mario on the race: "It was a great experience to be back with PCM. The TECATE car was really fast and the Bridgestone tires were very consistent. It was very unfortunate we had the wing break because we had a strong car and we could have easily secured a top-five finish. On the other hand, the positive side is that the car was very strong all weekend and I think we are going to arrive in Mexico City with a very fast car. I learned a lot and I expect us to run up front in the TECATE car in Mexico City."

Tyler Tadevic, Team Director: "Even though we didn't get the finish that we were looking for overall, it was a strong weekend for the team, particularly in the development area and we are looking forward to getting to Mexico City."
