Meyer Shank Racing’s Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 Honda started the Children’s Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park on Sunday from fifth place and came home in fourth for another fantastic result for the Swede this season and is now in fifth place in the championship ahead of May.

Speaking following the race, Rosenqvist said:

P4, I’d say we’d take that any day. We didn’t feel quick initially and we had some challenges early on in the weekend, but after that we kept improving and improving. I think our strongest part of the weekend was the race. We were on a massive fuel save and pretty much everyone around us tried to do a three-stopper, so it was hard to keep everyone behind. I’m happy we stuck to that strategy because it gave us a couple of spots in the end, even if we were not on the winning strategy. We made the most out of it and a lot of points on a weekend where we weren’t the favorite.”

In contrast to his teammate, Tom Blomqvist had a disappointing race as he came home in 19th place having started the race from 12th and speaking following the race he commented saying:

This was a really tough race for us. I was struggling to get grip the whole race so it was difficult to handle. It’s another race under my belt and we’ll just continue to keep learning each weekend.”
