Nico Jamin
Nico Jamin
An enthralling 30-lap Mazda Road to Indy Grand Prix Presented by Royal Purple Supporting Lupus Foundation of America this evening on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Grand Prix road course saw Nico Jamin claim an impressive win for Andretti Autosport. The 21-year-old Frenchman’s second victory of the season enabled him to close to within three points of series leader Colton Herta (Andretti-Steinbrenner Racing), who could manage only a distant 12th-place finish after an unscheduled pit stop.

VIDEO REVIEW: Ford GT, the 647bhp Le Mans-winning race car for the road
It won at Le Mans in 2016, 50 years on from its predecessor's drubbing of Ferrari, but how does the road-going version of the Ford GT stack up when the opposition is arguably even tougher away from the track? DRIVETRIBE's Jethro Bovingdon delivers his verdict…

Is it Chevy or is it Penske?
Again, the question is -- is Chevy that strong because of Penske, or is Penske that strong 'cause of Chevy? Whatever the answer, the result is that Will Power will start from the Pole for tomorrow's 2017 IndyCar Grand Prix of Indianapolis present by PennGrade Motor Oil (whew). Joining him on the front row will be Helio Castroneves, with Josef Newgarden and Scott Dixon splitting the second row. In the third row will be Juan Pablo Montoya and Sebastien Bourdais. The lone Penske car not to make the Fast Six, Simon Pagenaud, will start 7th.

Zak Brown could not believe another Alonso stoppage
It sure appears like Honda wants Alonso to quit the team
It sure appears like Honda wants Alonso to quit the team

McLaren Executive Director Zak Brown says he was "in a state of disbelief" when Fernando Alonso's MCL32 came to a halt after just two corners during practice in Spain.

Alonso, on his out lap on Friday morning, was sent into a terminal half-spin between Turns 2 and 3 when an oil leak struck his car.

McLaren has suffered a dismal campaign so far, plagued by a lack of reliability and performance, with Alonso edging closer to taking an engine-related grid penalty.

Indy Notes for Friday Morning!
Sam Schmidt and Mario Andretti
Sam Schmidt and Mario Andretti
Chevrolet continued their dominance of road courses this morning. Or was it a Penske domination? First round of practice saw Will Power fastest, followed by Scott Dixon, Josef Newgarden, and Simon Pagenaud. Juan Pablo, looking like he's loaded for bear, was 7th fastest.

The media center held a press conference with Sam Schmidt, Mario Andretti, and Robby Unser. Do you remember that lap that Sam took in the 'Vette around Indy? Well, the engineers continue hard at work, and to make things more fun they recruited Mario to "drive" one of those handicapped-accessible vehicles in what they're calling a "race". The event between Schmidt and Andretti happens tomorrow. "Just don't let me get lapped" was the most common quip that Mario made.

Will Power
Will Power

Coming off his first Verizon IndyCar Series podium of 2017, Team Penske’s Will Power is off to a good start in continuing his momentum into this weekend’s INDYCAR Grand Prix. The Australian led today’s opening practice session of the weekend with a fast lap of 1 minute, 9.3172 seconds (126.670 mph).

“We got better at the end,” said Power, slated to make his 175th Indy car start on Saturday. “Got a bit quicker. We made a lot of changes. We’ve got to digest exactly what works and does not back at the shed.”

IndyCar: Friday morning update from Indianapolis
Hello from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!  It is only May in Indiana so the weather is not perfect this early in the month.  The cloud cover has moved out and the sun is peeking out over the two and half mile oval track, with temperatures in the mid 50s and the high of 67 predicted for later today.   The fact that it could rain today won't effect the racing this weekend, since we are on the road course for the Grand Prix of Indianapolis.   This is the fourth time the IndyCars will run on the course that was built for Formula One, which raced here from 2000-2007.

Charles Leclerc has topped this morning’s free practice session at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona, setting the pace early on to grab the top spot despite close pressure in a busy session from Alexander Albon and Sergio Sette Camara.

The Ferrari Driver Academy man topped the timesheets with a lap of 1:29.974 a third of the way through the session, making the most of the warm and sunny conditions to grab P1 by just 0.042s from the Thai driver, reigniting last year’s GP3 title fight as the pair looked towards this afternoon’s vital qualifying session.
