THE MODERATOR: Now we have Sebastien Bourdais, who earned his 30th career pole position and also has now started on the front row for every Champ Car race he has started here in Europe. Sebastien, you had to go out and set quick times today. How was it?
SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS: Well, it was a little harder than I thought. The 15 minutes ran really well with the extended tires, and then when we were going to put the red tires on, it was going to be easier and the lap time was going to come really fast, but we got a little bit of traffic and I made a couple of mistakes and didn't hit the tires when they were at their best, then it got a little harder to get the lap time. I'm just glad that it was sufficient today. But it was a little stressful until the very end there.
Q. Your last lap times were 826, 821. Was that the absolute limit?
SEBASTIEN BOURDAIS: Yeah, I mean, it wasn't the limit, but that's what I was saying, the sweet spot on the red tires was like lap 2, lap 3, and I was locked up in traffic at that point. Then when I started to push, it was just past the window. But I was probably a small couple of tenths I would say. The car is consistent, so that's the good thing. It doesn't wear out the tires.
