KVSH Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais had a great day on Friday in Toronto ahead of this weekend’s Verizon IndyCar race.
The Frenchman in the No.11 Team Hydroxycut Chevrolet set the fastest time in this morning’s opening session with a 01:02.9290s while in the second session he ended up finishing in sixth place just behind Schmidt Peterson Motorsports James Hinchcliffe.
Speaking following the day of track action, Bourdais commented by saying:
The Hydroxycut machine was quick today. We made good progress in the afternoon practice, we just didn’t show it at the end of the session. I think on old tires we are looking good, and when we put new tires on we just get more front grip. I think we will be all right. It is just a matter of keeping the car off the deck and getting the car under control under braking. That is the highest priority here so we can load the tire instead of loading the undertray. In the second practice, as we started to brake deeper, we just hit the ground harder. It was a big challenge to put a lap together, but overall I am pretty happy. We just need to sharpen the edges a little bit and clean things up.
