Dale Coyne Racing with Vasser Sullivan Racing’s Sebastien Bourdais in the No.18 SealMaster Honda goes into this weekend’s IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway road course in third place in the series standings on 119 points following his fifth place finish last time out at the Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama.
Speaking ahead of this weekend’s race, the Frenchman commented by saying:
This will be my fifth INDYCAR Grand Prix and I have to be honest, the first couple of years, finishing fourth, I was a bit disappointed. The last two years we had decent cars, but things just didn’t go our way. I like the design of the circuit. There are a couple of good passing zones, but like all road and street courses, qualifying will be very important. The SealMaster Honda No. 18 has shown good pace the first four races of the season and we’re in the championship hunt, but we know we have our work cut out for us.
It is not yet known who will replace Pietro Fittipaldi this weekend however, Paddock Eye understands that English driver Katherine Legge is the front runner to drive the No.19 Paysafe Honda.
