Gavin Ward, Team Principal at Arrow McLaren:

“Even though the results from last weekend are still a bit fresh, we have very little time to dwell on those – we have a race to get ready for this Sunday. Detroit presents a great opportunity for us to build on the momentum we’ve created over the last couple weeks, especially considering how competitive we were there last year when we placed two cars in the top five. Pato (O’Ward) and Alexander (Rossi), and frankly everyone here at Arrow McLaren, are excited to get back out on track this weekend to fight for the win we were so close to last weekend, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Théo (Pourchaire) back for the remainder of the season.”

For Pato O’Ward in the No.5 Arrow McLaren Chevrolet is has been a tricky few days after he finished runner up in the Greatest Spectacle In Racing.

O’Ward, while absolutely devastated, he was gracious in defeat and is excited to be back on track in Detroit saying:

This weekend we’re back on a street course, and it’s a challenging one. It’s a big event for all of us, especially our friends over at Team Chevrolet. We’re going to try and do our best for them and hopefully have a good reason to celebrate at the end of this weekend.”

Alexander Rossi heads to Detroit aiming for a solid weekend coming off the back of a fourth place finish at Indy having just missed out on giving Arrow McLaren double podium at the Indy 500.

“This is a wild time of the year as we have back-to-back races coming off the biggest month in racing. We’re pushing hard as a group, and I’m proud of the effort that everyone is putting in. I can’t wait to get back on the streets of Detroit and hopefully get a win for the bowtie family.”

Thèo Pourchaire is back behind the wheel of the No.6 NTT DATA Chevrolet having missed the Indianapolis 500 last weekend and he is looking forward to experiencing a new track.

“I’m really happy to be back behind the wheel of the No. 6 onsemi Arrow McLaren Chevrolet. It’s great to discover a new track, and I really enjoy racing on street courses. Hopefully we can have a good race and get a great result for Arrow McLaren and Team Chevy.”
