Really, out there, you need to have a good race car. Forget about a good qualifying car. That’s kind of where we’re at right now. I’m very proud of the team. They have done a good job in the short time they had to put everything together. We still have a long week ahead of us and it is important we maintain a good mentality. Everybody here is working very hard to put both of the cars out there and I am looking forward to a solid test day tomorrow. Especially with the big changes that we’re going to make overnight"
