Dale Coyne Racing’s Pietro Fittipaldi in the No.19 Paysafe Honda endured a tough qualifying session on his return to the Verizon IndyCar Series for this weekend’s Honda Indy 200 at the Mid-Ohio sports car course.
The Brazilian will start the race from 22nd place and speaking following the session he said:
It was difficult today, “Obviously, we’re disappointed with our result. I felt I couldn’t turn on the tires. It’s my first time qualifying on a road course in an Indy car and you really have just a short amount of time and with the red flag we only got three push laps after that. I’m looking forward to the race. It’s very difficult to overtake here so it’s not going to be easy to move forward, but we’ll look at strategies and I’m confident our pace with the Paysafe car will be better in the race
