Dale Coyne with Vassar Sullivan Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.18 Team SealMaster Honda says he is pretty happy overall with his fifth place in qualifying for Sunday’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
The Frenchman who set a fastest time of 01:09.0189s and speaking following the day’s action he said:
Overall, I’m pretty happy with fifth. I was happy the No. 18 SealMaster Honda made it into the Firestone Fast Six, but I am not happy that I couldn’t fight for the pole. It’s been very close all weekend. The conditions changed a lot and I’m just not getting a good feel for what the tires need. We’ll keep trying and see what we can come up with for the race tomorrow.”
