NO. 28 DHL HONDA
“Tough day. We really didn’t find the balance we needed, but discovered a little bit at the end of the day that might send us in a better direction.Tomorrow’s another day; we’re going to go put our heads together to see what we can do. The DHL Honda crew is working hard to get us back to where we need to be for the rest of the weekend.”
NO. 26 ANDRETTITV / CINSAY HONDA
“Today has been a really difficult day, a disappointing day. We are struggling a little bit in general. We have to work hard – we still have one more practice session then qualifying, but the most important is the race, so we will see.”
NO. 25 ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT HONDA
“It’s great to be back in the car, it’s been an interesting first day to say the least. I’m still trying to get the most out of everything and work out what characteristics can be worked on and which ones are just the way they are. Right now I’m just playing catch up and I’m pleased with how things are feeling, not pleased with the lap time so we’ll just have to keep working on it the rest of the weekend.”
NO. 27 SNAPPLE HONDA
“We just seem at the edge of things, but it seems there’s a downforce deficit to my teammates, so we’re trying to get to the bottom of it… it’s frustrating. As a team we are all little off right now, so even if I get to where my teammates are, we’re still not where we need to be. We have some work to do tonight to get a better run tomorrow.”
