Earl Bamber - 02 Cadillac DPi-V.R
“We had a really good car all weekend and something to challenge for the pole but there was a yellow and some traffic on a key lap. I think we have a really good race car, Alex and Ryan are really strong and we definitely have the potential to win this one. Now we just need to execute tomorrow.”

Sébastien Bourdais - 01 Cadillac DPi-V.R
“I'm obviously disappointed because we’ve had a lot of speed this year and some great cars which allowed us to put the car on pole four times. It's not the way I wanted to finish qualifying in the DPi era but we’ll see if we can make the car a little better for tomorrow and go at it for 10 hours."
