Colton Herta was again quickest in official opening practice 1 for the Firestone IndyCar Grand Prix at Laguna Seca in his Harding Steinbrenner Racing Honda with a time of 1m10.734s

Meanwhile championship contender Alexander Rossi and his #27 Andretti Honda team were choking as Rossi finished dead last. The way the weekend is going so far, Rossi can kiss his championship hopes goodbye.

Rookies ran 1-2-3 with Felix Rosenqvist and Santino Ferrucci 2nd and 3rd.

Will Power and Zach Veach rounded out the top-5.
