"We gave it all we had today. The Marlboro Team Penske car felt pretty good during our qualifying run but had a bit too much understeer. We spent most of the weekend working on our race set-up and I think we're in good shape for tomorrow. One of the key things is having a car that handles well at both ends of the track which is what makes Motegi difficult and at the same time a lot of fun."
    Sam Hornish Jr., Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 & 2002 IRL IndyCar Series Champion 6 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
Qualified seventh -- 26.7070 sec. (204.890 mph)

"I really expected to qualify better based on the morning practice. Unfortunately, the Marlboro Team Penske car had a push in turns three and four during our qualifying run. It's a little disappointing that we're not starting up front (Castroneves qualified 15th) but tomorrow is the day that counts and I think we've got a good, consistent race car."
    Helio Castroneves, Marlboro Team Penske, 2001 & 2002 Indianapolis 500 Winner 3 Marlboro Team Penske Dallara/Toyota
Qualified 15th - 26.9184 sec. (203.281 mph)
