IndyCar rookie Romain Grosjean believes traffic cost him a shot at victory in the Grand Prix of Indianapolis, and described Takuma Sato’s driving as “a bit on the limit.” Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet’s Rinus VeeKay passed Grosjean ’s pole-winning Dale Coyne Racing with RWR-Honda as the latter was on “Is there room for improvement? Probably. Is there a perfect solution, but definitely traffic cost us the win today.” Asked if the tire marble build-up was a particular issue, that meant drivers dare not go off line in the heavy brake zones, Grosjean replied: “There was a bit of marbles

“Definitely traffic cost us the win today,” says Grosjean . After spending the majority of his 179-race Formula 1 career in middling to tail-end machinery, Romain Grosjean finds himself once again with an underdog team in IndyCar. While not without its challenges, he's relishing the more level playing field that means his Dale Coyne Racing crew can expect to claim a few scalps

long time it saw on Saturday at the race of the IndyCar series on the street course of Indianapolis as if ex-formula 1 pilot Romain Grosjean could drive at his first third start in the Championship from the Poleposition from to his first victory. In the end, he had to give himself beaten to the Dutch Rinus Veekay.

and in the view of Grosjean, above all, some hinterbreaked guilt that had stopped at the overrun. "Today, traffic in any case cost us the victory," says Grosjean.

"In Formula 1, I have often seen the blue flag in recent years, which was pretty bad for us," GROSJEAN thinks back to his time at the Formula 1 team Haas. "Today I would have wished you more often."

Traffic worse than before the pandemic in outer suburbs as Melburnians shun public transport

  Traffic worse than before the pandemic in outer suburbs as Melburnians shun public transport Andy Witlox's commute from Melbourne's outer east is robbing him of valuable family time. Experts say "infection fear" of using public transport is one factor driving the traffic gridlock.Between 6:00am and 10:00am, suburban arterial roads have filled up as more workers head back to the office — but the city's train network remains well below capacity.

Romain Grosjean led a race-high 44 laps and finished second. VeeKay won for Ed Carpenter Racing, the first victory for the team since Josef Newgarden won for them in 2016. Newgarden has since moved to Team Penske and won two IndyCar championships. "Bahrain was horrible but for my life it's been a great experience and people are really behind me and I can feel it," Grosjean said. "The support I am having is incredible. You've only seen me smiling here in the U . S . and we are happy to be racing here."

VeeKay had been running fourth in the second stint, behind Romain Grosjean , Jack Harvey and Palou but the Ed Carpenter Racing-Chevrolet driver made an early second stop for a set of scrubbed reds – Firestone’s softer, faster alternate compound. His politeness had cost him enough momentum that VeeKay got a run on both the Ganassi cars. Johnson moved right to keep out of the way, Palou swung left to defend the inside line for the long drag down to the next corner, left-handed Turn 7. But VeeKay kept his foot on the throttle and drove between them, completing the pass around the outside of Palou

roundlanger fight against Takuma Sato

Above all, a driver was Grosjean a mandrel in mind: "With Takuma it was borderline," he says about Takuma Sato, which Grosjean could only be overrun after a long struggle and then even rounded up.

"If you lose three seconds within two rounds and then over with overtaking also a bit, come together for five seconds very quickly. They would have been relaxed to keep Rinus behind us," says Grosjean. Since he lay in the target 4.95 behind the Dutchman, the bill goes up.

particularly disturbs Grosjean that the slower riders not only do not "avoid beside", but in the effort not to fight out of the leader, even actively defend against the overrun.

push-to-pass at the round-round "wasted"

"the hinterbakes use the push-to-pass to save themselves from overrunning, and that annoys one. Because this would have to use my own push-to-pass, the I would actually need for the fight against Rinus and Alex [Palou]. You do not want to waste that [at the downright], "Grosjean about the overhole aid.

The blockade through the rounded drivers finally caused Veekay Grosjean to overtake after the second pit stop. "Rinus was super fast in the first free practice, and also in the warm-up in cooler conditions. So I knew that he would be good," says Grosjean. "He did not go into the almost Six and therefore had more [freshness] red tires for the race."

While the Frenchman was launched on the softer tires in the race, Veekay first drove with the harder pneus. "When I had a slower car, he went early to the box, has changed from black to red and then had free ride. I knew she would drive another strategy and it would be tight."

blockade by bourdais sealed defeat

so it came. When Grosjean returned to the track with the harder tires after the second pit stop, Veekay drove past him on the soft pneus. And then Grosjean was once again a different driver in the way.

"In the last stint, I hung behind Sebastien Bourdais, who is a super fast driver and was on new tires while I drove on old red," he says. "I could not overtake him for a long time until he was afraid and straight ahead in Kurve 1."

But there it was too late for Grosjean to put the leader again under pressure. "I could see Rinus four or five seconds in front of me, but had no chance to get back to him again. That's what I've learned: I just have to push the whole race for a long time. If you are in the first stint a lead of seven or Eight seconds has not that means that you win the race. "
