Felix Rosenqvist in the No.60 AutoNation / Sirius XM Meyer Shank Racing Honda started Sunday’s Chevrolet Detroit Grand Prix presented by Lear from 22nd place and carved his way through the field throughout the eventful 100-lap race to finish the event inside the top ten in eighth place. The Swede’s result was his fifth top-ten finish in six races to date throughout the 2024 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season.

Speaking following the race he commented saying:

We finished P8 which I’ll take. We had a puncture on the first lap and then we were actually really quick on the reds and then the tires just went off [pace], and then it started raining. Everyone kind of ended up on the same program and we were around P8, P9. We just kind of hung there. We didn’t have great pace and we trimmed a lot, so we were good on the straights. We got hit a couple of times so we had damage so I was just focused on bringing it home. It was a great points day for the team overall.

Helio Castroneves who was back in the car this weekend in place of Tom Blomqvist started the race from 26th and suffered contact damage following an incident with AJ Foyt Racing’s Santino Ferrucci and speaking after coming home in 25th place just ahead of Josef Newgarden, the four-time Indianapolis 500 winner said:

“Wow, what a race. It was unfortunate that we got hit toward the beginning of the race and we had some damage in the rear. But good work from the guys to get it fixed and send me back out. Unfortunately after that we were just kind of running in the back and since we were a few laps down, we were just focusing on bringing the car home at the end. I don’t think we necessarily had the car to win today, but I think we could have hung around the top 12.”
