IndyCar Combined results Day 1 at Barber
Will Power comments on being fastest on Day 1.  I’ve never felt so much grip in this car. Penske 1-2, it’s only the first day of testing, but that shows that we worked hard in the winter. As a team we’re very determined to check a couple of boxes this year, obviously the Indy 500 and the championship are absolutely top of the list.

It’s important to test here to race here. It’s not really relevant anywhere else because it’s a pretty unique track, it’s very nice. We’ll get as much as we can out of testing here and when we go to St. Pete it’s very different. Very different track, very bumpy, and different tires. We’ve got to prepare for that too. We expect to get be fighting for the first few races for sure.

[On why the times were so fast today] The work that was done during the year last year and also engine work with the engine manufacturers, and it’s a little cooler, which helps turbo and it helps grip. It’s just a very fast situation.

[On if times were faster because of work on the track] Not really. You don’t really brake here, there’s only one place you brake. So it’s the cars, the temperature, and remember we’re running on black tires. If you can imagine when we put the reds on, it’s going to be fast.
