DOORNBOS FOURTH FASTEST IN PRACTICE FOR THE HONDA INDY TORONTO; McDONALD'S DRIVER RAHAL NINTH

Graham Rahal, No. 02 McDonald's Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "We're not quite there which is disappointing and frustrating because we should be. Somehow we had the wrong third gear which hurt our performance, particularly under braking so we lost a couple tenths (of a second) just in that. The McDonald's team will be okay but we've got some work to do. The thing that worries me is that the car feels very numb to any of the changes we made."

Robert Doornbos, No. 06 Dallara/Honda/Firestone: "It was a good day, our best day so far. We ran a good free practice. It is good to be back here in Toronto. It's a great city and a great track. It's a bit bumpy so you have to get used to that in the first couple of laps but after a while you get into a rhythm. We made some good changes during the second practice. Even on old tires we were competitive so I look forward to a good day tomorrow."
