Bourdais says Vegas sets a new standard

Although he was frustrated by the electrical gremlins that struck his McDonald's car in qualifying Friday, Sebastien Bourdais expressed delight in the new Las Vegas Street Circuit.

"Just wait until this track rubbers in more, it's going to be really fast for a street circuit," said Bourdais. Friday's provisional pole winning time was over 110 mph, which is fast for a street circuit.

"It just goes to show you how good these tracks can be when they spend the money to do it right. This track sets a new standard for street circuits. It's smooth, wide, has good grip and good runoff in the corners."

“As the track rubbers in I would expect us to go another two seconds quicker tomorrow morning and maybe another second faster still in qualifying tomorrow."
