FORMULA DREAM/PANASONIC DRIVER HIDEKI MUTOH TO START 11TH IN THE TOYOTA GRAND PRIX OF LONG BEACH; HIGHEST START OF THE SEASON TO DATE

Hideki Mutoh, No. 06 Formula Dream/Panasonic Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "In the first round we used two sets of red Firestone option tires and at one point we looked very strong. The Formula Dream / Panasonic car was good; we improved a lot from practice to qualifying. I gained almost one second. The second round seemed tough because we had already used the two reds in the first run so we only had used reds for Round 2 so that's why we couldn't go any faster. We know we have speed so maybe next time we can use black and red tires in the first round and two sets of reds in the second. The team did a fantastic job. I'm pretty happy."
