2014 Long Beach: Andretti Autosport IndyCar Practice Recap

Ryan Hunter-Reay, No. 28 DHL Honda

Ran as high as P1 in today's second practice session and finished the day 10th overall
Career best Long Beach start of second and best finish of first (2010)
"Everything went pretty well; it's the first day of Long Beach and we' ve been very strong here in the past. We've got a lot of things we want to do and we've got that pressure riding on us to be up at the front. We spent most of the day there but towards the end of the last session we didn' t get everything out of the new set of Firestones, so hopefully tomorrow will be better. For qualifying we need to make the car turn better, that's the name of the game right now for the DHL Honda."

James Hinchcliffe, No. 27 United Fiber & Data Honda

Best Long Beach finish of third (2012)
Posted the fastest time in the morning practices session and finished the day 12th overall
"It wasn't bad, a pretty typical Friday for a street circuit. The track changes a lot from P1 to P2 and we try our best to stay ahead of that but we still have some work to do. We made a couple mistakes in that second session and traffic is always a bit of nightmare here, so it's tough - you never know exactly where you stand. The United Fiber & Data car is obviously in the ball park so we'll have a think about it tonight and come back strong tomorrow."

Carlos Muñoz, No. 34 Cinsay Honda

Finished the day 13th over both practice sessions
Will qualify in the second group for tomorrow's afternoon qualifying session
"I think the second practice went really well. I improved a lot from the first practice, but I think I can do a little bit better. I think the Cinsay car was really good; I'm happy with the performance today. We have one more session tomorrow so we have to work hard tonight to make tomorrow even better."

Marco Andretti, No. 25 Snapple Honda

Recorded a career best finish in Long Beach of sixth place (2009) in five previous starts
Ran as high as fourth in today's practice sessions and will qualify in the second group tomorrow
"I think as a team we have a direction where we know we need to go, we just didn't get there for practice two. Hopefully tomorrow we can confirm that for practice three tomorrow. But all four Andretti cars are speaking the same language so we think we know what we need to do to be strong in the Snapple car tomorrow."
