Event Coverage: 2019 IndyCar Grand Prix
Colton Herta Spins
As the field went into Turn 1, Harvey pinched down slightly on Colton Herta and that sent Herta around.
RHR & Herta Stalled
Cars ducked and dodged to miss the stalled car of Herta. RHR got clipped by James Hinchcliffe as they both dove to avoid the stopped car. This sent RHR into a spin of his own, his nose bouncing off the side of Herta’s car. Both cars ended up stalled on the road.
Colton Herta Wrecked
While the AMR Safety Team was able to get RHR moving (losing a lap in the process), Herta’s car refused to re-fire. He was pushed into the runoff area, his day done.
Felix Rosenqvist, Jack Harvey, Ed Jones
Once both cars were cleared, the field went green again. Rosenqvist’s car began to fade and he fell behind both Ed Jones and Jack Harvey.
IndyCar GP
After this second restart, the race stayed fairly clean. The cars strung out and everyone began to settle into their own race, letting the strategies play out. Some cars had pitted under the yellows to swap tires and grab fuel (most cars moved off the Firestone Blacks and onto the softer, faster Reds which were much better suited to the cold conditions), but once the race went green it was a sprint.
Will Power Race
One year ago, Will Power became the first driver to pull off the Indy double, winning both the Grand Prix and the Indy 500 in the same year. He started well in 6th, but bounced around, sliding as low as 17th at one point. He rebounded to 7th, but it was a tough day for one of the Indy road course masters.
