Simon Pagenaud takes Toronto IndyCar pole

PRANG Australian driver Will Power lasted just one lap in the Toronto Indy Car race

Josef Newgarden, the newest member of the four-car Team Penske hoard, won Sunday's Honda Indy Toronto IndyCar Series race in Toronto, Canada.

Power, who won his third Toronto race a year ago after a decision to pit on Lap 58 worked to his advantage, said that the concrete is very slippery but driveable. "It was a huge turn around overnight by Andretti Autosport to get this auto to where it needed to be".

IndyCar series leader Scott Dixon enjoyed an encouraging day's practice at the Toronto street race round, clocking the third-quickest time.

2016 Honda Molson Indy: Will Power started fourth and scored his third win of the season when he was called to the pits by Penske race-strategist Tim Cindric just before a full-course caution for Josef Newgarden's spin closed the pits.

The 30-year-old from nearby Oakville, Ont., told the delighted Toronto crowd that this race is his "Christmas in July", and then sped to third place behind victor Josef Newgarden and runner-up Alexander Rossi. Hinchcliffe usually bounces back to be among the front-runners as Saturday afternoon qualifying draws near. "You're just trying to save your life and give it everything you've got".

"Last year I was the one that won that competition". He planned to use this season "to experiment", before deciding on his future. Coyne called and asked if Gutierrez was interested in taking over the seat. Starting seventh on the grid, he managed to avoid a coming-together of Will Power and Scott Dixon on Turn 3 which ended up knocking Power out of the race.

"I've just never had the success that I thought I could get for known reasons", Pagenaud said. "It's a street course I usually enjoy and (Andretti Autosport) should be competitive". He spent his first three years in IndyCar with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing, before now having had a different team at the helm each of the past three years.


"It's great to see him back, can't wait to see him in a auto", he said. "But on the sporting side, it is not where a driver would expect it to be".

"You always feel good coming into a race that you've won before". "But you still have to do your homework, you still have to really think about and execute".

Gutierrez says he is getting more comfortable in the Coyne auto.

"I was concerned about that and how it would throw a wrench into the works", Newgarden said.

A longtime staple on the CART and Champ Car slate from the 1980s through unification in the late 2000s, the bumpy, tight 11-turn circuit presents a significant challenge to drivers on track and engineers seeking the right setup. I feel like I really extracted the best out of my vehicle, the best out of my setup today.

The Verizon IndyCar Series is in the United States' neighbor to the north this weekend, as drivers are set to compete in Sunday's Honda Indy Toronto. Takuma Sato, who remains on the fringe of title contention but having fallen back in the last month with four tough results, of course has the year's biggest 500-mile win on his resume and could well spoil the Penske and Ganassi party there for Andretti Autosport. Kevin Lacroix will go off third.
