Rinaldo Capello (#77)
"I am happy with the car, but unfortunately I went on the track at the wrong
moment. I had to pass three slower cars which destroyed my first two laps.
After that, the tyres had less performance in the slow corners. However, I
was able to learn a lot during this qualifying session and I am
optimistic that I can improve my time tomorrow."
Frank Biela (#78)
"You need a lot of experience to find the right line on this track. If you are only
half a meter off the line you have no grip at all. I had some difficulties in the
first practice sessions to get used to the track and find the right rhythm.
During the qualifying session I finally got a feeling for the car. I hope we
can improve the setup for tomorrow. If it is not going to rain, it should be
possible to go much faster."
Reinhold Joest, Team Director Audi Sport North America
"We had no possibility to test here, so we have to start from zero. Other teams
have already some experience on this track. This starts with the setup of
the car and ends with the drivers getting more mileage. It is a challenge to
find a perfect setup. It looked a little bit better yesterday, maybe we changed to
many things at the same time. We will analyse the data exactly, and I am sure
we will find ways to improve."
