Andretti Autosport’s Romain Grosjean in the No.28 DHL Honda took his second career INDYCAR SERIES NTT P1 Award and his first for Andretti Autosport at the season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg presented by RP Funding, where he set a time of 59.5532s despite a spin earlier in the day and speaking following the action he commented saying:

Last year was a really good end of the year, good winter testing.. “We got here, and I said, ‘Boys, yeah, I think we’ve got something.’ We put it out.”

“I knew last year that something was just not coming my way,” Grosjean said. “We worked hard to find something.”

Pato O’Ward will start third as the fastest Chevrolet-powered driver in the field after a top lap of 1:00.0163 in the No. 5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet and speaking following the action he commented saying:

“Man, those Andretti cars are quick around here. “We knew that coming into the weekend. I’ve got to say the team arrived here with such a good package for me compared to last year. Last year we truly started on the back foot. We’ve got a car to fight with tomorrow.”
