"We worked on both qualifying and race set-ups today. We started with what we learned from our test here last week, but we need to continue to improve the Marlboro Team Penske car. Tomorrow we'll focus on qualifying and hopefully we'll put it at the front of the grid."

-- Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 and 2002 Indianapolis 500 Winner
-- #3 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
-- Ninth fastest combined time - 24.6573 sec. (221.922 mph)

"We spent most of our time working on the race set-up of the Marlboro Team Penske car. Obviously, we're not very high on the speed charts (de Ferran was 13th overall in today's practice sessions), but we definitely made progress. Tomorrow we'll shift our focus to the qualifying set-up and we'll just have to see where we end up."
