Andretti Autosport’s Marco Andretti in the No.27 Dr Pepper Honda started Sunday’s Honda Indy Toronto from the back of the grid in 22nd place and came through the field to secure a tenth place finish. Speaking following the race he commented by saying:
Glad we could get a top-10 finish for Dr Pepper. Considering where we started, we made up some ground, but we’ve really got to get better as a whole. It’s definitely been a frustrating weekend when it comes to pace. We have to improve mechanical grip to make it easier on the driver. Time to focus forward on Mid-Ohio and see what we can get done there.
Ryan Hunter Reay in the No.28 DHL Honda started the race from 18th place and came through the field to finish the race in 12th place and speaking following the race he commented by saying:
It was a struggle of a day, really couldn’t do anything with the car. Thought we had a promising direction for the DHL car in warm-up, but it didn’t translate to the race. We were absolutely struggling out there, it was similar to Long Beach. The last couple road course races we finished third and fourth, but this one was far from that so we’ll need to go back and work on that and get back on the podium at Mid-Ohio
Alexander Rossi finished the race in 16th place having started the race from 19th place and speaking following the race he commented by saying:
I think we had the potential to be top five today but the way that second-to-last yellow fell, we lost a lot of track position and it’s impossible to pass around here. It was always going to be a tough race starting from 19th, so we need to qualify better at Mid-Ohio and work hard for a better result.
Carlos Munoz finished the race in 17th place having started the race from 15th place and speaking following the race he commented by saying:
It was a disappointing race. We had some issues with a wheel and I had to do a whole lap with only three wheels. We lost a whole lap from that, but we showed our pace was pretty decent today. We made a lot of changes overnight and it seems like it worked. We’ll have to see what we have once we get to Mid-Ohio.
