Honda Indy Toronto Race Report

“We had a bit of a handful today, for sure. The result was a good turnaround, though. Really nice good job by Alex [Rossi], finishing second and Marco [Andretti] grabbing fourth. We had a great battle with Simon [Pagenaud]. I was almost able to hold him off to keep fifth, but we just couldn’t keep it and finished sixth. I just got too loose at the end. I think I burnt the rears off trying to catch Marco. That’s the way it goes, though. Overall, it was a pretty good day and a good turnaround from last year.”

With rain clouds looming, the Streets of Toronto served as the backdrop for one of the team’s best collective race results of the 2017 season, with three cars coming home in the top-six finishing positions.

  • Started 16th // Finished 6th
  • Championship: 13th (273 pts.)
  • Gained more positions during the 85-lap race than any driver in the field on his way to a 102nd top-10 finish

After back-to-back race weekends, the Verizon IndyCar Series will take a weekend off before heading to Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for Round 12a of competition. The Honda Indy 200 at Mid-Ohio will broadcast July 30 live on CNBC at 3 p.m. ET.
