How an IndyCar rookie has used his prolonged preparation

  How an IndyCar rookie has used his prolonged preparation When reigning Indy Lights champion Oliver Askew secured his step up to IndyCar with Arrow McLaren SP, he never expected to wait until the middle of 2020 to make his debut. But as he and the rest of the grid get ready for action in Texas this weekend, it will test how good his extra preparation has been For race fans, the moment one season ends the countdown starts for the next one to begin. But, as the chequered flag fell on the 2019 IndyCar finale at Laguna Seca, nobody could have imagined they would be counting for quite so long.

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (AP) — Takuma Sato of Japan won pole position at St. Petersburg for Sunday's season-opening IndyCar Series race. It was a stellar debut for Honda and its new twin turbo engine. "It's a fantastic day. I can't really ask any more for the start of the season," Sato said.

IndyCar debutant Rinus Veekay was another driver to fall foul of the condensed one-day format as a practice crash left him unable to set a qualifying time.

Santino Ferrucci elected to skip qualifying in order to allow more time to develop his car set-up after a difficult practice session.

On his oval racing debut, Ferrucci's Dale Coyne Racing team-mate Alex Palou qualified in a respectable 16th place.

The 2020 IndyCar opening race takes place later today due to the shortened schedule.
