Tony Kanaan, #44 McDonald's Honda-Reynard:

"We've got a reasonable balance right now but it is still very difficult to drive. I can't describe how difficult it is right now. We need to put together the best setup we can. It's difficult because two and three are completely different corners and when you make a good gain in one, you lose in the other. You need to find a good balance all the way around. I think everyone is facing the same challenges right now."
