Indy 500 pole sitter Scott Dixon wary of Fernando Alonso threat

28 May 2017

When it comes to victory lane at the Indianapolis 500, milk is never a bad choice.

Brown said Formula 1's owners support Alonso's Indy 500 bid, despite the double world champion not taking part in F1's showpiece event. The push then to become the first driver with five would be too great a challenge to give up.

"It's been good because of the data we've been able to share and pass on, not only for someone like Marco or Ryan, but it's been good for all the guys", Michael Andretti said. "It could be during the season, but I don't know". He's going to be in the hunt. "There are many things, but Indy hasn't been up there for me for many different reasons", said the driver, who stood down from McLaren at the end of 2016 while remaining under contract as a brand "ambassador". "That's why I think everything's gone so well, is everyone has played their part". "Selfishly, you could get jealous as a driver, but big picture, we are all benefiting from him being here". It just seems they have been overlooked. It shows how much he wants to be at the front.

"That's one of those bittersweet situations", Hinchcliffe said with a chuckle. "But having a good vehicle here is only about 60 percent of what you need". It actually gets really good in traffic.

"I'd like to do (the) Le Mans (24 Hours endurance race) one day", Button said.

Andretti starts in the middle of Row 3 on Sunday in the No. 27 Honda. IndyCar driver Tony Kanaan said Dixon had been making a fast food dash for a number of drivers, according to reports.

"He's super down to earth, very friendly and has really embraced this experience", Hinchcliffe said. He feels very welcomed by the IndyCar club. "But, I think most driver's share in my kind of answer, and that's why they pour it all over themselves rather than drinking it". He's embraced the whole experience, the fan interaction we have, which is a massive degree higher than what you see in F1.

The National Counter Terrorism Policing body said the breach of trust caused great "damage" and "undermines our investigations". Officers also raided a property in the Moss Side area of the city early Thursday and carried out a controlled explosion.

"The Greatest Spectacle in Racing" is nearly here. With Fernando, it's clear why he did it, but it would be more hard for an Indycar driver to prove himself in formula one. Dixon will start on the pole for the third time in Sunday's Indy 500 as he aims to repeat his 2008 victory at the famous oval. Good thing is many of my teammates are around me. "He definitely has the vehicle and the capability to do it - but so does a lot of people in the field".

Jenson Button says he does not have any regrets regarding his decision to retire from Formula One at the end of 2016 despite thoroughly enjoying the new era of F1 auto which he drove for the first time in Thursday practice for the Monaco Grand Prix.

"When you are driving a road course there is a 190 miles per hour corner, a 60 miles per hour hairpin so you've got to have a set-up that works in all those ways,"Franchitti says".

The six Andretti cars in the 33-car starting grid are the most by one team since Andy Evans started seven in 1996 with Team Scandia. "I know I will lack experience in critical moments".
