The Frenchman set a track-record time of 58.9124 seconds Saturday during the final round.

"Qualifying was a huge effort for the whole team".

A pair of Pagenaud's team-mates at Team Penske, Helio Castroneves and Power, locked up the second row in qualifying. With the pit lane being moved, and a tightening to Turns 9, 10 and 11 to accomodate Hotel X Toronto, drivers past year were anxious about running out of room in some sections. We have to prioritize having solid finishes from here to the end.

So every position and every point matters in the Honda Indy Toronto.

Pagenaud finished his quickest lap in one minute 0.2573 seconds on the streets surrounding Exhibition Place.

"I thought we had a very fast vehicle, we got a pretty good start, and stayed out of the mayhem", Newgarden said. I just feel bad for my guys. Dixon has finished in the top 5 of seven races this year and finished in the top 10 in all but one race. Hinchcliffe finished third a year ago after starting the race in position three.

"This finish has been a long time coming", said Rossi.

Alexander Rossi was second, and James Hinchcliffe finished third in his hometown race for the second straight year. "It's good just to be within a fighting shot of getting wins".

"We turned this into a podium past year so fingers crossed we've got a strong race vehicle and things go our way in the race". But over the years, he said, he's become better at dealing with them. "I hadn't realized he was ahead of us at the time, so I thought we were out and luckily we got in". Schmidt Peterson Motorsports said Aleshin will be at Toronto this weekend supporting the team, but weren't providing any more details.


It's a barnburner of a finish since no one has more than two wins yet this year, but as ever, the combination of wins and consistency will deliver this year's IndyCar title. Then (Will) Power and I got together and ended up cutting down our tire and doing some damage to the suspension on the auto.

"It's just hard work". "We just take what it gives us and make decisions based on the conditions at the time".

Power has won at Toronto thrice before while Castroneves is coming off of a win last weekend at Iowa that snapped a three-year victory drought.

Gutierrez crashed near the end of the first round, hitting the wall on the straightaway to the finish line.

Hildebrand slid into the wall at the exit of Turn 8 in Segment 2 qualifying, when his vehicle jumped the curb on the inside of the corner and slid straight into the barrier.

Pagenaud said that the Toronto track's difficulty makes it the most important place to qualify well.

Newgarden entered the race on Sunday in fifth place in the IndyCar standings through the Iowa Corn 300 last week.

"I nearly threw up before the race and I've never done that before, so it was quite interesting how my body took it", an ecstatic Thompson said after the race while draped in a Canadian flag.
