Q. What is your opinion of the racetrack? How have you been able to handle that slipping and sliding all day long? Do you think you can nail the setup when you're leaving part of the racetrack out sometimes?
WILL POWER: Yeah, I mean, I like the circuit. I think it's great. You know, I think it's a good decision to qualify tomorrow because it is a little bit tough going down the slippery start/finish straight. You know, like Helio said, it's going to be very physical.
But that's what it's all about. Yeah, I mean, setup-wise I think everyone got a little bit closer there at the end, which is going to make qualifying a lot tighter, which is better for the fans.
Q. What are you going to do to prepare for the physical and mental challenge of practicing, qualifying, racing all within the same day, probably within about six hours, specifically the physical demands?
WILL POWER: Yeah, I mean, that's done over months of training before you even turn up here. So, you know, you have to work very hard in the off-season. I had to work especially hard, because I broke my back and was out for a long time. You know, I think it will be survival of the fittest tomorrow.
It's a very tough track. Like you say, you got a lot to do in one day. I think it will be physically and mentally draining. Everyone will be. Yeah, I think it will be a good day, though.
Q. On your back, were you feeling it at all going down that bumpy back straightaway?
WILL POWER: No, I don't feel it at all in the car. It's not a problem. It's just when I walk around or run or anything, it's direct impact on the spine. Lying down in the car, it's fine.
