Andretti Harding Steinbrenner Autosport’s James Hinchcliffe in the No.29 #ShiftToGreen Honda says that as a team they are looking to have a big turnaround for the month of May starting with this weekend’s GMR Grand Prix on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course following what by the Mayor of HinchTown’s own admission has been a rough start to the 2021 NTT IndyCar Series season for the team.
Hinch goes into this weekend’s race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a best result here of third place and speaking ahead of the race he says:
“No doubt as a team we are looking for a big turnaround in May. The first few rounds have been rough, but that’s racing, and this group is nothing but fighters; we will come back strong. It’s exciting to have fans in the stands and represent both Capstone and Genesys this month in the two different events!”
Colton Herta in the No.26 Gainbridge Honda is happy to be back at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway and goes into the month of May with one win so far this season having dominated the Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg, taking both the NTT P1 Award and the victory.
“It feels great to be back in Indianapolis in May! I can’t wait to get back on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course this weekend. We’ve had strong cars here in the past, so that gives me so much confidence in what we can do with the No. 26 Gainbridge Honda going into this weekend.”
Ryan Hunter Reay in the No.28 DHL Honda is hoping to apply what the team learned here in the Harvest Grand Prix last season and apply to this weekend’s race saying:
“The month we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! We’re thrilled to finally have our partners, guests and fans join us for the GMR Grand Prix kicking off the Month of May at IMS. At the 2020 Harvest GP on the IMS road course, we had a strong qualifying result making the top six, so we’ll be looking to apply what we learned in October and apply it this weekend. Then we’ll shift our focus to practice and qualifying for the most important race of the year, the Indianapolis 500.”
Alexander Rossi in the No.27 AutoNation Honda is looking forward to having what he hopes is a strong weekend at IMS to build some momentum going into the 500 saying:
“The Month of May is finally here and the best news of all is that we will be able to have fans back with us at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Last time we were on the GP track at the end of 2020, we had a double podium so we will be looking to pick up where we left off. We can’t wait to put on a show for everyone there!”
