He said it was a great opportunity for the shore team to work on their boat.
Burling appeared to give a friendly wave to the Oracle crew as he sailed alongside and into a controlling position during the prestart of Race 8.
The new and improved "17" was clearly faster and more competitive with the Kiwi boat.
Team NZ narrowly won race seven before a dominant display in the eighth meeting for a 30-second victory to take match point.
"We're frustrated with the penalty", Spithill said at the post race press conference.
"They didn't have many chances to get back in the race", Burling said from on board his catamaran at the finish. You saw it in the Artemis race when the Umpires admitted they made a mistake.
In today's first race the critical mistake came during the pre-start, when on the final approach to the starting line Spithill - perhaps mindful of being over early during Saturday's racing - bore away briefly and opened the door for the Kiwi's to break away unchallenged.
Racing continues on Sunday afternoon.
Donald Trump has no intention of firing Robert Mueller: White House
Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment on Ruddy's remarks. Ruddy said Tuesday that he stands by his comments. Ruddy is long-time friend of the President.
"We don't need to think too much about the end result, all we need to focus on is winning one race, and one race at a time".
If he can show the same composure on Monday, the man who has become the face of the New Zealand team could win himself a place in yachting history.
However, from the start of race five, the first race of day three of the America's Cup Match, presented by Louis Vuitton, it was clear that ORACLE TEAM USA had found significant boat speed since the two teams last raced on Sunday 18th June. New Zealand tacked and gybed 17 times to Oracles 19.
Team USA, skippered by Jimmy Spithill, beat New Zealand by 11 seconds in the second race of the day - halting the Kiwis' run of five straight wins.
This was an astute tactical race by the Emirates Team New Zealand afterguard who were prepared to make sacrifices to keep it tight and controlled.
"It makes life a little easier when you get off the start 14 seconds ahead", said Burling, who some thought would struggle when matching wits with two-time Cup victor Spithill. "They sailed clean and smart", the 37-year-old Spithill said.
"I don't have the fears that suddenly we'll go to New Zealand ...and it'll take the Cup back to the Dark Ages", a tanned and bearded Ainslie said. "It is working. The boat is getting quicker". With the average speeds of the boats nearly identical it was a case of who would make the least mistakes, both skippers later admitting to errors as the lead chopped and changed.
