Phoenix Grand Prix Qualifying Report

“We just missed it by a tick – that’s all it really takes here. We had just a little bit of an imbalance. It was really tricky earlier today (in practice) with the wind and the gusts and the sand storms. I remember coming out of Turn 4 at one point and it was a wall of orange dust coming at me. It was an interesting day, I’ve never really had that in a race car. Hopefully we can make the DHL car similar to last year. Last year we had a good run and we made some great passes and restarts. I’m not really sure what to take from today for tomorrow.”

A mixture of strong winds and desert dust blew through Phoenix International Raceway during Saturday’s practice, creating a loss in track time and hindering the team’s ability to configure the cars to a perfect set-up.
