NTT IndyCar Series rookie Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing had another strong qualifying as the Swede once again outqualified his team mate defending series champion Scott Dixon driving the No.9 PNC Bank Honda.

Rosenqvist will start the 60 lap race at the Circuit Of The Americas in Austin Texas from fifth place having set a fastest time of the 01:46.5680s.

Speaking following the action he said:

On the new red (Firestone alternate) tires, we’ve been good all weekend, and even in qualifying we were second in the first round and first in the second round. In the last run, we just didn’t have the grip we needed. I think we did a good lap, but maybe some other cars managed it better. It was a pretty positive day and we had good speed in the NTT DATA car for sure.”

Scott Dixon will be roll off sixth tomorrow having set a fastest time of 01:46.9375s and speaking following the action he said:
