Dale Coyne with Vassar Sullivan Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais said it was a challenging day at the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg on Friday.
Speaking following Friday’s action, Sebastien Bourdais who drives the No.18 SealMaster Honda he said:
It was a tough, challenging day for the SealMaster Dale Coyne Vasser Sullivan team. We tried something different today that we worked on at Sebring. Different concepts, looking for solutions for the street course setup. Unfortunately, it didn’t work out the way we hoped. The car isn’t terrible, but it just doesn’t get us where we need to be. So, we’ll just hit the reset button and go back to something we are more familiar with. Hopefully, that will get us back in the top-10 tomorrow.”
Santino Ferrucci felt that his car was a little loose on Friday and speaking following the day’s action he said:
Our No. 19 David Yurman, Cly-Del Manufacturing Honda was a little loose today. We were just struggling to find some front grip, but we were also trying something a little different coming into practice today. We learned a lot and I’m looking forward to going into tomorrow’s practice and qualifying to see what we can do after we look at all the data and make some changes for tomorrow.”
