Rookie Rosenqvist Leads Honda Qualifying Effort in St. Petersburg

  1. Rookie Rosenqvist Leads Honda Qualifying Effort in St. Petersburg
Felix Rosenqvist qualifies third for season-opening NTT IndyCar Series race
Teammate and defending series champion Scott Dixon to start fourth

 

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 9, 2019) – Rookie Felix Rosenqvist started his NTT IndyCar Series career on a strong note, advancing to the Firestone Fast Six final round of knockout qualifying to claim the third starting position in his Chip Ganassi Racing Honda for Sunday’s season-opening race.

 

Rosenqvist’s teammate – and defending series champion – Scott Dixon will start fourth after a hectic qualifying effort that saw his team make chassis setup changes to Dixon’s Honda prior to each round of qualifying.  Andretti Autosport teammates Ryan Hunter-Reay and Alexander Rossi will start fifth and sixth, respectively, as Honda drivers claimed four of the Fast Six qualifying positions.

 

Jack Harvey was another Honda driver to start his 2019 season with an excellent qualifying effort, and he will start seventh in his Meyer Shank Racing entry.  James Hinchcliffe and Graham Rahal round out the top 10 for Honda; while another impressive rookie, Colton Herta appeared headed to the Fast Six final round until he was penalized for impeding a competitor during the second round.  He will start 11th in his Harding Steinbrenner Racing Honda.

 

Sunday’s 110-lap season-opening race starts at 1:30 p.m. EDT, with live network television coverage on the NBC Sports Network.

 

Felix Rosenqvist (Chip Ganassi Racing Honda) qualified third for first NTT IndyCar Series raceI’m pretty happy. I’m not even sure yet what feedback to give to the team in qualifying, so I didn’t want to change anything on the NTT DATA Honda. I guess when I get comfortable enough we can have those conversations, which is something to look forward to. We [Rosenqvist and Dixon] are starting side by side as teammates. I just can’t wait to get going tomorrow for the race here at St. Petersburg.”

    • Long Beach’s Grand Prix report is $150K worth of obvious points
      That report was made public Monday afternoon, and it’s loaded with an absence of surprises, although there are a few bits of weirdness involved. Rather than submit what KPMG said would be an ideal computer-aided design plan for the proposed F1 track that would identify all mandatory components required following FIA (the governing body of […]
    • Here’s who won the race between Formula 1 and IndyCar in Long Beach
      In October last year the city released a request for proposals seeking “an open-wheel auto racing format” to run the annual Grand Prix event. From the start it was only a two-horse race between Michaelian and Pook. Pook, of course, was hardly a carpetbagger. He founded the Long Beach Grand Prix in 1975 and brought […]
