Topic - Simon Pagenaud
IndyCar drivers are in for quite a shift.
Simon Pagenaud already has one Indianapolis victory in his pocket. He may soon be in position to win the second of this month's triple crown.
Simon Pagenaud went into last season convinced he was a contender for the IndyCar championship. Then a mechanical problem in the St. Pete season-opener put him deep in the standings and forced the Frenchman to claw his way out all year.
Indianapolis Motor Speedway officially opened for the month of May with a chaotic road course race that started with a wreck, saw James Hinchliffe and the mayor of the city injured by flying debris, and, finally, Simon Pagenaud celebrate a fuel-mileage victory.
Will Power and Penske Racing are back in a familiar position at Barber Motorsports Park: Starting in the pole position at a track where they dominated until last year.
Helio Castroneves expects some fallout from the bad tempers left over from the last IndyCar race.
A week off did nothing to mellow the tension between Simon Pagenaud and Will Power stemming from contact between the two at Long Beach.
Tempers flared all around the streets of Long Beach, where drivers declared friendships over after a surprisingly physical race.
The Frenchmen were the fastest Friday on the streets of Long Beach.
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports has signed Russian driver Mikhail Aleshin for its second IndyCar entry in 2014.
It was the second career win for Pagenaud, both this year. The 29-year-old Frenchman became the third driver to win in three years on the bumpy, challenging street course that runs through the middle of the city.
Chip Ganassi had a plan. Of course he did. He always does.
IndyCar drivers Simona De Silvestro, Simon Pagenaud and Tristan Vautier have been penalized for making unapproved engine changes.
Parity? There's parity in IndyCar?
Ryan Hunter-Reay slid into a seat next to Simon Pagenaud and E.J. Viso after the final practice for the Indianapolis 500, and then started to rattle off what he had learned.
"It's a bit like downhill skiing," Pagenaud said. "It's quite enjoyable. It's like dancing with the car."
"It actually makes me wonder why he focused so much on the race," Pagenaud said with a wry grin. "I'm sure he'll come up with something in the race and I'll learn then."
