They Said It

“The rubber is going down, which is good. But the heat isn’t helping. It got pretty toasty out there toward the end of the free practice and at the beginning of qualifying. That’s not going to help tire life and certainly heat in the car. All of those things are going to play a part in the race.” - Oliver Gavin

 

“It’s one of the toughest races we will face. The level of stress is very high. You have no rest time and are on full attack during an entire stint. It’s difficult to keep your concentration level 100 percent the entire time with all the variables in place.” - Antonio Garcia
