"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."
