Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe in the No.5 Arrow Honda will start today’s IndyCar Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway from 10th place and speaking following the session the Canadian who is currently in 5th place in the series points standings commented by saying:
Tomorrow is going to be a long day for the Arrow Electronics crew. We rolled off the truck for our worst Friday that we’ve had all season which is unfortunate. Our car really isn’t where we’d like it to be, and we haven’t had the ideal time today to get a good grasp on it all… Hopefully now that we’ve got a good night ahead to sleep on it, we can take a bit of a closer look at everything and try and put together a plan. We’ll put our heads down and try to put on a good show tomorrow.
Mikhail Aleshin in the No.7 SMP Racing Honda will start today’s IndyCar Grand Prix at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course from 17th place and speaking following the session, the Russian commented by saying:
It was definitely not what we were expecting to get out of qualifying. We struggled a little today but we made a few good changes between sessions. Tomorrow is what matters, so we’ll see what we can do to make the most of our starting position in the Lucas Oil Honda.
