Meyer Shank Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 Sirius XM AutoNation, who started the Acura Grand Prix from P1, continued the team’s upward trend as he came home inside the top ten in ninth place. Speaking following the race, the Swede said:

“The opening segment is where we essentially lost the race. We had some issues with the brakes: they were running really hot, so I was really off on my bias and had to chase it. We really lacked braking performance, which meant I kept getting passed in turn one, inside and outside. Without braking confidence, you can’t protect and you can’t go forward. But the team did well despite that, we kept our heads cool – even though it sucked to go plummeting down the field. We are looking at the big picture and a top ten result for the team is still really great for us. Of course we would have liked to translate the pole into a win, but this is good momentum for everyone.”

Tom Blomqvist started the race from 15th place and came home in 22nd speaking following the race he commented:

It was not a great day for us. It all went wrong at the start: we got stuck in a traffic jam at the fountain which did some damage to the wing. That messed things up a bit. It’s just one of those days in motorsport where you have to learn a lot so you don’t repeat those mistakes. We changed the wing, but we probably did it at the wrong time and that put us a lap down and our race was over. Though we’re obviously frustrated with how the weekend’s gone, we’ve got to take the small positives from it.
