Defending NTT IndyCar Series champion Scott Dixon in the No.9 PNC Bank Honda for Chip Ganassi Racing says the team will have to come back strong in Detroit today after the Iceman suffered his first race retirement in two years on Saturday.
“It was unfortunate. I just clipped the inside wall and got into the tire barrier. Driver error. I think we broke the suspension and the upper toe link. The PNC Bank car was really good and we were setting up for a good finish I thought. I’m glad the tire barrier was there. Whenever you go right toward a wall you never know. But I’m fine and we’ll have to bounce back strong tomorrow.”
Felix Rosenqvist in the No.10 NTT DATA Honda had a great race as he came home in fourth place and speaking following the race he said:
We had a big battle going on with (Takuma) Sato. I got him and he got me back. I respect him, but there were some questionable moves for sure. I really wanted a podium out of it today, but that’s the way it goes. We are moving in the right direction in the NTT DATA Honda and hope to continue to show that tomorrow.”
