IndyCar Series: Indy Japan 300

Tony Kanaan
April 22, 2006


MOTEGI, JAPAN

THE MODERATOR: We are joined by third place finisher Tony Kanaan. Back-to-back third place finishes for Tony, his fifth straight top 10 finish.
Tony, if you would, tell us about your day.
TONY KANAAN: Well, it was an okay day for us. We had a flat tire. Toward the end, I had to pit a lot earlier. The car was okay. I think I was going to be competitive, but we got a set down when we got the flat tire and I had to pit earlier. Third place is not bad for us today.
THE MODERATOR: Questions for Tony.
Q. When you cut the tire down and had to pit so early, were you concerned it was going to take you out of contention and was there any concern at all about that being too long of a stint on fuel?
TONY KANAAN: At that point I was definitely concerned that it was going to jeopardize my chances to win the race. The second question was if I was concerned if my stint was going to be too long?
Q. Run out of fuel.
TONY KANAAN: I knew I got out of sequence, so basically if we didn't have another yellow, I was going to have to pit an extra time. So I was definitely concerned. But the history of this track, we always have a yellow. I was hoping to have one and it not be me.
Yeah, my main concern was it took me out of contention to win the race.
THE MODERATOR: Thank you, Tony.
