Power second in Indycar Toronto practice

Power second in Indycar Toronto practice

Look for Power to have another great run today. He'd be out of the race as a result.

"I should know better than to ever take any sort of risk when it's the first lap, it's just not worth it". Just not worth it. "I'm very focused on the event this weekend". "Didn't even complete the first lap".

James Hinchcliffe is the face of the Honda Indy Toronto, so beating the hometown favourite at his race is that much sweeter for Josef Newgarden. Power then bounced off the wall and back into the left rear of Dixon.

The contact saw the Toowoomba driver unable to continue while Dixon battled on to finish 10th. If you look at where we were a year ago - the last four cars in qualifying - to having three cars in the top 10, really having something to fight for today, is a testament not only to this weekend and the strength the team has shown, but also this off-season and how much better 2017 has been for us, has been for Honda. I know we keep saying that, but it was nice to make a change and be rewarded with more team pace overall.

"It was a rough day in the NTT Data vehicle". "If it starts raining when I'm on the wrong end of the track, then that wouldn't be very good". We pitted because we wanted to get clean air. Then we had to fix the vehicle and INDYCAR gave us a drive-through penalty, which was kind of odd. Last year: Lewis Hamilton won the second of four consecutive races.

Pagenaud and Castroneves' race was ruined by Kanaan caution.

Castroneves ended a three-year win drought with a victory at last weekend's Iowa Corn 300.

"This finish has been a long time coming", the victor of the 2016 Indy 500 said.

"We played it right but we got unlucky".

The win puts Newgarden in the championship hunt as he is now just 23 points behind Dixon.

American Josef Newgarden, ranked one ahead of Power in championship standings in fourth, won the race. "It really is incredible coming here, and hopefully we can carry this momentum on to Mid-Ohio and get a win". Newgarden was 56 back of Dixon seven days ago in the cornfields of Iowa. He joins Graham Rahal and Will Power as the other two-race winners.

Pagenaud said that the Toronto track's difficulty makes it the most important place to qualify well. "It was a good call at the right time". "We had a bad GP with a pit lane speed limiter issue, and a bad Indy 500 wrecking out with 20 to go, getting caught up in something".

"Once that scenario passed, I thought we had everything we needed to win the race". But over the years, he said, he's become better at dealing with them. It kind of yo-yos back and forth for everybody.

"I think things are starting to finally come together". "Luckily we're going out".

Newgarden and the Penske team. "The yellow for sure helped us win this race". He said the only "problem" was that this win came at a track where he has previously won. Hildebrand has struggled at road and street courses this season, never finishing higher than 11th. Alas, Team Penske has 10 top-fives out of a possible 13 top-fives in those three races, so it's hard to bet against any of their quartet in those races. But, again, there's a question mark. "We led most of the way in the race previous year until we got hosed on the yellow there and went to the back".

But the 25-year-old driver, who has raced in Formula One, Formula E (an all-electric series) and IndyCar the last two years, remains optimistic about reaching his goal of a top-10 finish in Sunday's 31st renewal of the iconic downtown Toronto street race. Penske's Simon Pagenaud will start on pole position after throwing down a record 58.9124-second lap time.

The race featured a total of four lead changes among four different drivers. Power held-off Helio Castroneves on a last-lap restart to score career win number 28.
