US Preview Quotes: BAR

Jenson Button: "We were very competitive in Indianapolis last year and I think we will be again this year, so I'm looking forward to next weekend. We don't have the best qualifying slot but it's reasonable and I think that we can do great things from there. Montreal was a good race for us even though we didn't score any points, as we showed that the car is back on form. The Brickyard is a very slow circuit. I prefer fast flowing circuits, but the car works well there which is the most important thing. It's always a great atmosphere at Indianapolis. The circuit has a lot of history and the crowd are always very supportive. It should be a good race for us."

US Preview Quotes: BAR

Takuma Sato: "I have great memories from Indianapolis in 2004 as I got my first podium at the race last year. I am very much looking forward to getting back to Indy next weekend and I think we will be competitive. The new aero package looked promising in Canada this weekend, so I hope the car will again show a step forward in performance and it should suit the Indy circuit quite well."

Gil De Ferran, Sporting Director: "Personally there is a special feeling returning to Indy for a race. Although I return in a very different capacity, Indy is a place where one of my greatest triumphs took place as driver and I have some fantastic memories. Hopefully I will be able to add to those memories with a good showing from B·A·R Honda. Despite the disappointment in Canada, we feel very good going into the US Grand Prix. We were quite competitive throughout the last weekend and we are hoping to find ourselves in a similar position at Indianapolis."

Shuhei Nakamoto, Engineering Director, Honda Racing Development: "We showed better speed over the weekend at Montreal and must aim to convert that into points in Indy."
