Motegi: Andretti Green Racing Thursday notes

Danica Patrick, ...

Danica Patrick, #7 Motorola Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"There is a great deal of potential in the Motorola car, because we are not too far off on where we need to be for tomorrow's qualifying run. We are going to have to do some homework tonight to get the handling where it needs to be. Hopefully, we will be able to get on the track tomorrow so we can get some laps in before qualifying."

Tony Kanaan, #11 Team 7-Eleven Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Overall, today was OK. We ran a full day and hopefully tomorrow will be better. I'm not quite happy with the balance of the car, but we still have two days to go and a lot of work to do. I'm having a problem in Turn 4, so that's where we're trying to make the Team 7-Eleven car better. Turns 3 and 4 are the keys to a balanced car for the race; that's where you're going to make the pass."

Marco Andretti, #26 Alpine Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"Today was a good day for the Alpine team. We ran a lot of laps today and were able to try some different things. We can still make some improvements to the Alpine car but I'm really happy with the race car we have."

Hideki Mutoh, #27 Formula Dream Dallara/Honda/Firestone
"I know the condition is the same for all the drivers, but I am very frustrated that the Formula Dream car didn't have a clear run today. I hope we get to qualify tomorrow. This race is very important for me and I want to be able to give 100 percent."
