"Both cars ran well which is a good way for Marlboro Team Penske to start the weekend. The track was changing every lap which made it difficult to get into a rhythm so I just tried to get comfortable and consistent in the car by staying out on the track as much as possible. I don't think we're there yet so we're going to evaluate everything tonight, and try to improve on our time tomorrow when it counts. We'll have to see what the weather situation is Saturday, but if it stays clear I think the track will improve and we'll run faster."

Gil de Ferran
"We had a trouble-free day and the balance of the Marlboro car is good. There was a lot of traffic which made it tough to get a clean lap. My fastest lap actually came fairly early in the second session (lap 28) and I just wasn't able to get another good lap in at the end."
