KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet did a great job in qualifying on the streets of Toronto. The Frenchman set the fastest time time in the third practice session this morning prior to qualifying while in the afternoon session he did a great job setting a time of 01:00.4221s which was good enough for 5th place on the grid.
Speaking following the session he commented by saying:
The Hydroxycut machine has been really quick this weekend. We just kind of slid a little bit behind the eight ball during qualifying. It was a little weird. We tend to struggle a little bit as the grip goes up, we pick up a bit more and more understeer, run out of tools to dial it out. It is what it is. To be honest, we kind of shot ourselves in the foot a little bit in the Firestone Fast Six. We only did one lap on the last run. We were planning to do two. There might have been a couple of 10ths, but nothing to go and get Scott (pole sitter Scott Dixon). Maybe the best would have been to try to challenge Simon (Pagenaud, qualified third). Overall, I am just happy to be in the Fast Six and see what we get tomorrow.
