Detroit race one winner Sébastien Bourdais has told Paddock Eye that he sees know advantage to having an experienced small team compared to the larger teams such as Ganassi and Penske.
The Frenchman took his second victory in a row in Detroit having won here in the second race last season.
The No.11 Team Hydroxy cut Chevrolet ended the race just ahead of Dale Coyne Racing’s Conor Daly. Speaking following the race Bourdais told Paddock Eye:
No, there is no advantage there. Thankfully Olivier and I work together really well, we’re countrymen. But we definitely could use more resources, more time, more money, more people. If you knew how many things we leave unturned, it’s very frustrating at times.
Bourdais went on to say:
Like at Indy, the car, we didn’t have time to get the car to a shaker rig because we ran three cars, then all of a sudden time has gone by and we don’t have enough people to build the car, don’t have the crew to go and test things. It’s the limitations of the small team.
