Marco Andretti set the quickest time in a frantic second IndyCar practice session at Iowa. Times from the session will be used to determine which of Friday night’s three qualifying heat races drivers will be placed in, with only the eight fastest earning a spot in the third race, which will determine pole position.
June 22nd, 2012
Marco Andretti topped the opening practice session for this weekend’s IndyCar Series race at Iowa Speedway. Andretti, who won last year’s race at the 7/8th mile oval, set the pace with a best lap of 184.832mph to finish up just ahead of Sarah Fisher Hartman’s Josef Newgarden and Bryan Herta Autosport’s Alex Tagliani. Ryan Briscoe (Penske) and Scott Dixon (Ganassi) completed the top five
June 1st, 2012
Will Power went quickest in the second practice session for this weekend’s IndyCar race on the Belle Island street circuit in Detroit. On a track that had mostly dried out from the morning’s heavy rain, the Penske driver posted a best time of 1m12.8355s, putting him just 0.09 seconds clear of Dale Coyne Racing’s Justin Wilson. Power’s team-mate Ryan Briscoe was third-fastest, with Schmidt Hamilton’s Simon Pagenaud and KV Racing’s Tony Kanaan rounding out the top five
May 27th, 2012
Dario Franchitti came from the rear of the field to take the win in a dramatic Indy 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Scot spent the late laps trading the lead with Ganassi team-mate Scott Dixon, but Takuma Sato (Rahal Letterman Lanigan) managed to get between the pair with two laps to go and lined Franchitti up for a passing attempt. Sato managed to get alongside Franchitti in the first corner of the final lap, but did not allow himself enough space and bounced off the Ganassi car and into the wall, bringing out the yellows and allowing Franchitti an unchallenged run to the finish
May 25th, 2012
Dario Franchitti has taken Carb Day honours at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Ganassi driver setting the fastest time in the final practice session before Sunday’s Indy 500. Franchitti topped the times with a 222.360mph lap (40.4749s) to put him just ahead of team-mate Scott Dixon (222.274mph). Marco Andretti (Andretti Autosport) was third-fastest with a 221.702mph effort “The car was good,” Franchitti said.
May 21st, 2012
Chevrolet’s IndyCar drivers say the American firm’s domination of Indianapolis 500 qualifying was the ideal response to the recent controversy over the series’ turbocharger rules. Seventh-place qualifier Josef Newgarden (Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing) is the only Honda-powered driver in the top 10 on the Indy grid, as Chevrolet monopolised the leading positions
May 13th, 2012
Rookie Josef Newgarden was quickest for Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing on the opening day of practice for the first Indianapolis 500 of IndyCar’s new rules era on Saturday. The day was largely a shakedown for the 24 drivers who were ready to run, but Newgarden still managed an early lap of 40.8627s at an average speed of 220.250mph.
April 28th, 2012
Will Power has secured pole for this weekend’s IndyCar race on the streets of Sao Paulo. The Australian was the only Penske driver to get through to the final phase of qualifying, but he was able to hold off Ganassi duo Dario Franchitti and Scott Dixon to claim his place at the front of the grid
April 28th, 2012
Dario Franchitti turned the tables on Will Power as their battle continued in the second IndyCar practice session in Sao Paulo. Power (Penske) had knocked Franchitti (Ganassi) off the top spot right at the close in opening practice on Saturday morning, but it was the Scot who returned the favour in practice two, his last-gasp 1m22.2611s beating Power by 0.0816 seconds. Long-time pacesetter Ryan Hunter-Reay of Andretti Autosport was pushed back to third, with Franchitti’s team-mate Scott Dixon and Power’s team-mate Ryan Briscoe completing the top five.
April 18th, 2012
IndyCar says that the new safety features built into the DW12 chassis performed exactly as they were designed to at last weekend’s race at Long Beach, despite Marco Andretti’s car being launched skyward following a collision with Ganassi’s Graham Rahal. The new Dallara includes several features intended to prevent cars from going airborne, most notably the blocks behind the rear wheels
April 15th, 2012
Will Power took an against-the-odds win in Sunday’s IndyCar race in Long Beach. The Penske racer, who was one of 14 drivers who had a 10-pace grid penalty due to an engine change and started from 12th, got himself into the position to win through some smart strategy from the pitwall, but he had to see off a late charge from Schmidt’s Simon Pagenaud. Power had made his final stop relatively early and had to conserve a lot of fuel to get himself to the finish, but Pagenaud had been on a different strategy and made a late stop from the lead, which cost him track position, but gave him the freedom to run flat-out
April 14th, 2012
Ryan Briscoe was fastest in Long Beach IndyCar qualifying, but it is Dario Franchitti who will start from pole due to the engine change penalties awaiting all the Chevrolet-powered cars.
April 14th, 2012
Will Power set the fastest time in Saturday’s third IndyCar practice session in Long Beach. On a morning peppered with several red flag interruptions, Power managed to make the most of the available time under greens to post a best lap of 1m10.7553s, putting him just 0.0170 seconds clear of Andretti Autosport’s Ryan Hunter-Reay. Power’s Penske team-mate Helio Castroneves was third-fastest, but also triggered one of the reds when he caught too much of the kerb on the inside of Turn 5 and was pitched into the wall.
April 1st, 2012
Will Power came through from ninth on the grid to win the Barber Motorsports Park IndyCar race. The Penske driver made it to the front by the final stint, and was eventually able to edge away after a tussle with Ganassi’s Scott Dixon.
April 1st, 2012
Simon Pagenaud was quickest in the final warm-up session ahead of Sunday’s IndyCar race at Barber Motorsports Park.
March 31st, 2012
Helio Castroneves followed up his St Petersburg win with pole position for round two of the IndyCar Series at Barber Motorsports Park. James Hinchcliffe was a close second for Andretti Autosport in his best IndyCar qualifying performance yet, with Scott Dixon third for Ganassi and underdogs Mike Conway (Foyt) and JR Hildebrand (Panther) starring with impressive fourth and fifth places. Champion Dario Franchitti struggled with his set-up and was a shock early departure in the group stages, ending up only 18th on the grid.
March 30th, 2012
Will Power led a Penske one-two in opening practice for this weekend’s IndyCar Series event at Barber Motorsports Park. Takuma Sato completed the top three for Rahal Letterman Lanigan Racing, ahead of Sarah Fisher Hartman’s rookie Josef Newgarden – who had led the way in the opening half hour, reserved for drivers outside the top 10 in the championship. Rubens Barrichello was fifth in the fastest KV car
March 25th, 2012
Mike Conway has gone quickest in the final warm-up session ahead of today’s IndyCar season-opener at St Petersburg. On a track drying from overnight rain, the AJ Foyt driver produced a best time of 1m03.2891 to put himself just a few hundredths clear of Rahal Letterman Lanigan’s Takuma Sato, who’d held the top spot earlier in the session. The tricky conditions prompted a cautious approach throughout the field, which was reflected in the times – of the top six qualifiers, only Ryan Hunter-Reay figured anywhere near the top of the timesheets, while polesitter Will Power finished up 20th
March 24th, 2012
Simon Pagenaud has set the quickest time in today’s third IndyCar free practice session at St Petersburg. Penske duo Will Power and Ryan Briscoe had looked safe at the top of the timing screens with the only sub-1m02s laps in the field until Pagenaud, who was issued a 10-place grid penalty last night for an unauthorised engine change, produced a 1m01.8929s effort with just five minutes left on the clock
February 23rd, 2012
Ryan Briscoe has praised the handling of IndyCar’s new Dallara DW12 on ovals after testing a revised version of the car at Texas this week.
