Dale Coyne Racing with Rick Ware Racing’s Romain Grosjean in the No.51 Nurtec Honda says that what the team learned from their test here last week hasn’t played out the way they wanted as he will roll off from seventh place on the grid for Sunday’s REV Group Grand Prix of Road America.
Speaking following the qualifying session, Grosjean said:
P7 in qualifying at Road America, it’s not bad but obviously we were hoping for more. We’ve been struggling to find the right balance on the car. The track has been changing quite a bit from the testing we did two weeks ago. We have the warmup next and I think our long run pace will be very different than our one lap pace so we’re going to work on that and hopefully have a good race tomorrow.”
Cody Ware in the No.52 Nurtec Honda starts from 25th and speaking following the action he said:
“Qualifying went pretty well for us, I was really happy. We made a few changes this morning for free practice 2 which didn’t really go to our advantage but Don Bricker (engineer) and my whole team did a great job dialing the car back to where it needed to be and we found some speed for qualifying and it really paid off. I’m looking forward to the race tomorrow.”
