"The ArcaEx team definitely had a good day. This morning was a good start. We were very consistent. Bryan (Herta) and I got a chance to do a long run together and it was good to get some results from that. We obviously have a bit more work to do. But, so far so good. Tony (Kanaan) looks very comfortable, so I'm happy about that. That bodes well for qualifying. But, we definitely had a good day."
