BAD LUCK RUINS COLETTI’S HONDA INDY GRAND PRIX OF ALABAMA

Started: 16th
Finished: 19th

Fast Facts:

  • Coletti started 16th and was running 10th by lap 16
  • Coletti had the support of Harbert Management Corporation, a U.S. Investment Management company based in Birmingham, Alabama.
  • Gus Malzahn, head football coach for Auburn University, and his wife Kristi were team guests for the race

“We were off to a great start with a great strategy. We pitted and then after that we were running 10th and the car felt great and we were up there. However when we pitted an accident just happened and race control apparently thought that I came in when the yellow was out, which I really don’t think is the case.  We need to get that clarified because they sent me to the back of the field and my race went downhill from there. I tried to pass Jakes and we both made contact and spun and then I got a drive through penalty for avoidable contact and after that it was really over for me. I feel bad for my team because they have been working so hard to give me such a fast race car, but we seem to be getting the worst luck and hopefully that changes soon.”

BOURDAIS PLACES EIGHTH AT HONDA INDY GRAND PRIX OF ALABAMA

Early caution ruins his race

Started: 7th
Finished: 8th

Fast Facts:

  • Bourdais has finished in the top-10 in three of the first four races of the 2015 Verizon IndyCar Series season (St. Petersburg, sixth; Long Beach, sixth, Alabama, eighth). He was also running sixth before a late pit stop at NOLA dropped him out of the top-10. He was then collected in an incident and finished 21st.
  • Bourdais earned 25 points today and is now 10th in the championship race with 91 points.
  • Bourdais led laps for the second consecutive race. He led one lap at Long Beach and two today at Barber Motorsports Park.
  • Today’s eighth place finish is Bourdais best in five starts at Barber Motorsports Park. His previous high was ninth in 2012.

“It was a trying weekend, but we hit the reset button and the Hydroxycut machine was good. The guys really did a hectic of a job. In one way it is frustrating because we struggled so much in practice and qualifying, but at the same time it is encouraging because we were able to recover. We tried something and it didn’t work, so we really hurt ourselves, but then when we got the car back in the window for the race we were quick. There will be some other weekends like this and we will just have to work hard to capitalize. Thanks to Hydroxycut and Mistic we have a strong package behind us and we just have to keep digging.”
