Awesome effort by the team to get the #98 back on track this eve. This @honda powered beauty has been great this weekend and I'm happy with the progress we've made in #Phoenix 📸 @indycar #IndyRivals

Proud of how far this team has come this year. Struggled to be on the lead lap in St. Pete to fighting up front in the final race of the year. Was a huge honor and privilege to drive at @andrettiautosport and be next to some of the best drivers I've ever worked with.

We only missed the (Firestone) Fast Six by a one-hundredth of a second, that’s really hard to swallow because you can look back and look over a lap and think of a lot of places where that one-hundredth is. It’s just crazy. It’s our best qualifying on a road course so we have to take some satisfaction from that and try to get the car to the front tomorrow. I think we have a fast race car so this is the one Saturday where I know I’ll get a decent night’s sleep.

Overall today's been our most positive Friday outside of an oval this year and it couldn't have come at a better time for my home race. I think so far things are going pretty well. We resolved maybe 70 percent of any issues this afternoon, so that was positive, and we got to the front, which we like to see. There's still some work to do but it's been a positive Friday. 📸 @indycar #indyrivals #home #indycar

There is so much that I am looking forward to this weekend that it's hard to choose just one thing; whether it's my home race in California, double-points season finale, or the fact that 100+ friends and family are coming out to watch - some for the first time. I want to take all of this energy and use it as even more fuel to end the season on a high note. I'm proud of how the No. 98 team has steadily improved throughout the year and I look forward to seeing what we can accomplish this weekend.

I traded a helmet for a headset and did my best Maverick impression (or something). Video: win.gs/carvsplane

To finish 8th was a decent result considering where we came from this weekend. We had to save a lot of fuel on the last stint and be very disciplined not to push. Had we not been in fuel save the last 20 laps we would finished 4th or 5th. Generally I think with a disappointing qualifying, that is the best that we could come up with. We’ll have to take this result and move on to Sonoma were I’m really looking forward to racing in my home State. 📸 @indycar #indyrivals #watkinsglen

We made big improvements overnight and had a top five car this morning. The first run on blacks (primary tire) felt about as I expected it, but on the reds (alternate tire) we completely lost the balance. It’s very surprising, very disappointing and a huge mystery at the moment.

We weren’t as strong as I think we expected to be today, based on how we felt after the two tests we had here earlier this year. The lap time increase from the test is pretty extreme – I mean, it’s over two seconds and people are just improving more than we did – we need to understand why that is, for sure, and we have to find the grip needed overall. 📸 @indycar #indyrivals #watkinsglen
