Alex Tagliani on today's practice for the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:

"Today has been ok. It has pretty much been the same thing as Brazil. I think we are strong team but we are still searching left and right on the scope of the set-ups. I think we're going to find and be right up there in qualifying tomorrow. What we're lacking right now is the data. We don't have enough data on all the tracks right now where we can put all the set-ups in a funnel and have them come out and say 'here is the window' we need to be in to unload the car from the truck and be in the top-five. So we're still trying all kinds of things each session and we definitely still have some work to do. But we are creeping up on it; we have gotten better each outing. We are going to make some pretty big changes for tomorrow morning and hope that we are more in the scope of what this car needs to be fast."

Rob Edwards, General Manager, on today's practice for the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg:

"It was a reasonable start for us today. As a new team we start every weekend with a long "to do" list as we don't have data from the previous year to use as a starting point so we always have a lot to do on the first day of running. We got through a lot of our list and we definitely found some things that will work for us and some things that won't. So tonight, we will go back and analyze the data and hope to be in the Firestone Fast Six tomorrow afternoon."
