Auto racing roundup: Newgarden triumphs in Toronto

17 July 2017, 08:55 | Myron Mathis

Hinchcliffe probably had a podium taken away from him when a much-debated questionable caution came out at St. Petersburg in the season opener.

IndyCar may be in the thick of the 2017 season, but talk surrounding driver changes for 2018 is already beginning to capture some attention.

In 2015, he was the test and reserve driver at Scuderia Ferrari and then drove a year ago for the new Haas F1 team.

Pagenaud entered this event only 31 points out of the lead, a deficit that's easily surmountable, especially with the last race, at Sonoma (Calif.) Raceway on September 17, offering double the normal of points.

After a strong start to the second round, Hinchcliffe fell back but was able to recover on a final shootout lap. "It's a street course I usually enjoy and (Andretti Autosport) should be competitive". "I'm not going anywhere". The checkered flag is his second of the season.

Schmidt Peterson Motorsports made a driver change this week, removing Mikhail Aleshin from the No. 7 Lucas Oil Honda. After the 100-miler Gohde got the winner's autograph in the pits, something he couldn't do when he saw Hank Aaron hit a home run at County Stadium, and, again, he was hooked.Paul began attending the Indianapolis 500 in 1961, and saw A. J. Foyt's first Indy win.


Aleshin is in attendance with the team this weekend in Toronto. Power is now fourth in the point standings. He finished eighth, his worst performance of the season in races in which he wasn't taken out in a crash. He was able to get back into the race on Lap 60, moving into fourth spot but finished 10th.

Newgarden's points haul of 185 from the five races came courtesy of four top-five finishes. Of course, the outlier in that was his victory at Road America. He now sits third in the point standings. Castroneves enters this weekend lurking just eight points behind as he seeks his first-ever IndyCar points title. Beyond his Toronto win he scored his first Penske podium with third at Long Beach and added fourth and second-place results at Detroit. They trail Dixon by 66 points.

While Castroneves and Pagenaud are closer to Dixon, Power may very well be the biggest threat. The young American has been solid in four starts on street circuits, recording two top-10 finishes. Bottas is now 35 points behind the series-leading Vettel, with Lewis Hamilton - who failed to reach the podium last week - now 20 points back.The first Formula 1 World Championships race was held at Silverstone in 1950, won by Guiseppe Farina in an Alfa Romeo.

Former F1 driver Max Chilton sustained a late challenge from Castroneves to secure seventh, with Graham Rahal ninth and championship leader Scott Dixon in 10th.

Bourdais fractured his pelvis, a hip and two ribs when his auto exploded into pieces and spun through Turn 2 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway after hitting the wall at 227 miles per hour.
