2013 Houston: Chevrolet IndyCar Qualifying Quotes


WILL POWER, NO. 12 VERIZON TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 2ND: ON HIS QUALIFYING: "We literally had one lap on blacks and one laps on reds. We got the most out of it. It’s good to start on the front row and that’s about it. Definitely a fair way to qualify, especially if it puts me on the grippy side of the track at the start.

ABOUT THE CHANGES TO THE TRACK: "You’re not running over (the) ground (part), you’re running to the left. I think they need to do a bit more grinding. It still bottoms a bit, but we can race."

DID YOU HAVE ANY BRAKING ISSUES OR DIFFICULTY WARMING UP THE BRAKES AND TIRES? "No, actually it was pretty good out there on blacks (tires). Doing that one lap on reds (tires) - it was a bit skatey. It is so hot out there, the tires are pretty warm anyway so your out laps aren’t bad."

DID THE OTHER SERIES CLEAN THE TRACK? "They had yes. As soon as I went out, I noticed there was definitely more grip."

IF YOUR SESSION HADN’T BEEN SHORTENED, WOULD YOU HAVE HAD MORE IN THE CAR? "Yes, absolutely. Most definitely. We did one lap and one best lap was on blacks. I’m pretty sure we would have been quite a bit quicker."

HAS THE CHANGES IN THE SCHEDULE CHANGED YOUR NORMAL ROUTINE? "Yes, it’s been constantly changing. But we’ve ready for every session. It’s not a problem. It is part of the teething problems you have when you come to a new track to sort everything out. When we come back next year, we aren’t going to have any of these problems. It’s a good track; I’ll enjoy it a lot."

SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS, NO. 7 MCAFEE DRAGON RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 4TH

SIMONA DE SILVESTRO, NO. 78 NUCLEAR ENTERGY AREVA KV RACING TECHNOLOGY CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 6TH:

JAMES HINCHCLIFFE, NO. 27 GODADDY PINK ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 7TH:

E.J. VISO, NO. 5 TEAM VENEZUELA PDVSA CITGO ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT HVM CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 9TH:

MARCO ANDRETTI, NO. 25 RC COLA ANDRETTI AUTOSPORT CHEVROLET, QUALFIED 12TH

TONY KANAAN, NO. 11 HYDROXYCUT KV RACING TECHNOLOGY - SH RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 15TH

ORIOL SERVIA, NO. 4 NATIONAL GUARD PANTHER RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 18TH

SEBASTIAN SAAVEDRA, NO. 6 TRUECAR DRAGON RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 21ST

HELIO CASTRONEVES, NO. 3 SHELL V-POWER/PENNZOIL ULTRA TEAM PENSKE CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 22ND: "I'm obviously very disappointed with the qualifying result since the Shell V-Power Pennzoil Ultra car is starting toward the back. The Shell and Pennzoil team is the best in the business - we have a great group of guys. So hopefully we will make the best out of it and work our way forward in Race 1."

ED CARPENTER, NO. 20 FUZZY’S VODKA/ED CARPENTER RACING CHEVROLET, QUALIFIED 23RD: "The track is different now without the chicane on the front straight. We just haven’t been able to get the rear grip we need. The car is sliding a lot. We’ll work on some settings for the race now. It’s going to be hot, tough race this afternoon."
