On his qualifying effort... "Boy, that 12 minutes went by fast. It seemed to take forever for the tires to come up to temperature. There's a fine line to balance between pushing the car to go faster but still protecting your tires for the race. We'll take a look and see how well we did.

"The car better and we're moving in the right direction, but it just didn't want to stop. So this actually was a good session for us because we continued to learn more about what we need to do next to continue our progress. We'll fine tune those last few things in our morning warm up before the race."
