Power, Penske wins final Detroit GP in Belle Isle

“Redemption!” was the shout of Will Power on the radio as he won a thrilling match to take the final Detroit Grand Prix through the streets of Belle Isle. It was a performance competition in which Power’s biggest lead was cut to 1.0s on the watch flag as Alexander Rossi did his best to win for the first time in almost three years.

But it was Power, who was on the verge of winning last year’s Detroit Round 1 and lost his lead on the red flag when his No. 1 spot. 12 Team Penske Chevy refused to burn at the mine lane, which they put on a masterclass in tire protection. The 16-year-old founder had no problem Sunday, as he and others who started inside the pack used two methods that started using Firestone’s original tires, and eventually won prizes.

Rossi alone, who introduced Firestone’s fast-paced but unstable and almost dove-like tires almost immediately to take primaries and change the three-way suspension, was able to make it work when it reduced the 16.0s to 1,0027s on the checkered flag.

“I just drove as straight as I could,” Power said after struggling to close the race. “Men, a good job with the team. It was very tough for Chevy to get on the road to success. That was last year’s redemption; I was expecting something to happen in the last 10 seats.”

Nothing would have disrupted Power when the race was green for all but the last few minutes after crossing the start / finish line, and behind it Rinus VeeKay of Ed Carpenter Racing slammed into the wall and entered the tires on Turn 6. It wasn’t the only challenge of the day, or suspension.

The steady speed – the fastest in the race history – is what allowed Rossi to put his most impressive car in a short time in No. 27 Andretti Autosport Honda, and when he was disappointed to finish second, his efforts made him seventh in the race.

“I think the other part would have been more interesting, but you have to pay tribute to No. 12 Boys and Vehicles,” Rossi said. “This is hard to do in the end so we have to wait. Once again, we have come here with an amazing car but we can’t win, but a good recovery from yesterday. The process was great.”

The last member of the forum was Scott Dixon, who started primaries like Power but went on to swap and close primaries. No. 9 Chip Ganassi Racing Honda did well from the start of the ninth, but did not have the exact same power as Power or Rossi.

“More than I thought; being one of the few lucky ones who started on [primaries]”You can watch it play,” said Dixon after a successful recording of the season. “But thanks to Will;

Team Penske polesitter Josef Newgarden was one who suffered a bit after waiting for his day-to-day injury and finishing fourth. Pato O’Ward of Arrow McLaren SP was also in the same position as soon as the start and end of the fifth. As a major change to Power’s 15th position, Alex Palou of Ganassi jumped from 18 to 6 using the same technique as Dixon, and from there, most of the field left Detroit feeling somewhat frustrated or frustrated in their day.

Where VeeKay fell from 10 to 16 with a concussion in the closed nose, Penske’s Scott McLaughlin fell to the end of the race when he fired and lost his nose while trying to turn the car around; completed 19. Helio Castroneves had an electric shock with his Meyer Shank Racing car that broke a high speed after 21 runs, and after pitting from the second, Kyle Kirkwood of AJ Foyt Racing hit the wall on cold tires and retired on lap 49. he ended up on lap 2 while hitting the back of his car on the wall of the Turn 2 and was badly damaged to continue.

Power was unquestionable at Belle Isle, and thanks to her futile journey the leading competition is back in her hands. Can he continue to look closely at what has been used in each race this season and ask for a second race? The summer months are fast approaching.

It was a wonderful start when only half of the field lined up to take the green flag. Everyone got up and saw Scott Dixon – the first driver on a smaller tire – descending from P9 to P11 when Scott McLaughlin and Alexander Rossi struck. The front of Takuma Sato was converted to P4 while all Meyer Shank Racing drivers, led by Simon Pagenaud, passed P2 and P3.

Saturday and Sunday’s tragic Graham Rahal was combined with a solid solo hit with a Turn 2 exit wall that broke his right back suspension on lap 2. Rinus VeeKay slammed under the green on lap 4 to sell primaries and went three ways. , but remained inactive at the pit for a few important minutes and returned to P23. Rossi was next in line to resell the same tires and change course on lap 5 and is briefly described in P22.

David Malukas, the seventh runner-up, was next in line for a three-way suspension and Santino Ferrucci had just a few seconds to make the same call. Will Power was the main mover, jumping to the P7 and starting the P16 on the popular starting tires. Dixon climbed P8 on the same primaries. Power continued on the motor and took the P6 from Sato and Dixon took the P7 from Colton Herta.

Sato sat on lap 10 in the primaries while Power and Dixon and Palou continue to harass drivers who are struggling with alternatives. By the end of the 11th, all three were P3, P5 and P6. Kyle Kirkwood, on the primaries, was up to P7 on the same nose.

Power was up to P2 and Dixon to P3 early for lap 12 when their starting point for double suspension is working perfectly. Polesitter and competition leader Josef Newgarden on alternating races were traveling at 1m21s while Power, Dixon and Palou were on the road for 1m18s and showing off their chances. On lap 14, Power pushed his teammate to lead and Dixon had a few corners behind him; Palou passed again, downgrading Newgarden to P4 in the semi-finals.

By the end of 17 years, Kirkwood had climbed the P4, Rossi stopped three times to take him to P5 and Newgarden had 12.0s back to Power in P6. Several drivers climbed on lap 17 at the top of the two-stop window and others are expected to follow.

Lap 18 saw Scott McLaughlin spin in Turn 3 and eventually went after losing a lot of time trying to get back on track. Three other agents on the other side, including Newgarden, such as the possibility of a warning – which did not fly – came as McLaughlin was preparing himself.

Helio Castroneves’ deep pit stop on lap 23, who seems to have a problem with starting weapons. Kirkwood came on lap 24 as the first of two primaries and returned in the P9 primaries. Rossi stood up again on lap 25; then he had the opportunity to use it three times as the leaders struggled in their own ways. He lived in P8.

Power was put on lap 26 and he also did primaries, leaving the switch as his last set to use. Dixon was at the end of lap 26 and changed again when Palou interrupted and changed again. Two Ganassi drivers are required to make the changes last longer, which no other driver has achieved so far.

Rossi, who was 18 years behind leader Power and seven behind Palou in P3 on lap 29, was also paying. By the end of the 30s, he was leading the way to 13.3s as his speed on the primaries was much higher than Power while Dixon and Palou were the tire controllers.

By the end of 38 years, Rossi was in Palou’s run with 12.8s behind Power and on lap 39 P3 was his downside Palou. Power was 15.0s filled the road from Dixon. His descent also delayed Rossi who saw his differences in Power grow to 16.0s early for lap 42.

At Lap 43 Rossi finally leads Dixon who was approaching the final to take the primaries. Palou was on lap 44 in the primaries as Rossi’s difference in Power was 18.7s. Dixon, Newgarden and O’Ward all sat on 45 legs. Power stretched his front to 19.4s on the same nose.

Newgarden, at P10, and O’Ward came out in front of Palou where most of the drivers went into the pits. Rossi also rode on the lap 47 and went back ahead of Dixon in the P4.

Kirkwood came down from the second, went to the turn and hit the wall with the left behind, stopping the suspension and finishing his day. Strength was at the end of lap 50 on some changes and had 16.0s leading Rossi with lap 52.

Rossi was running about 1.2s in the nose fast and had a lead of up to 12.6s on lap 54 of 70.

At the end of the 63rd season, Power seized 10.7s at Rossi while the difference was still stable, but the exchanges in the leader’s car seemed to be losing its grip. Earlier lap 65 dropped to 9.4s while the chase was off. Strength was with Jack Harvey and Jimmie Johnson at the front and Johnson was kind enough to move on at the start of the lap 66 when the lead was at 7.9s.

At the start of lap 68 Power the lead for Rossi was cut to 6.5s with Harvey and Santino Ferrucci ahead. With two trips, Rossi came within 5.1s when Ferrucci moved to Power. The final season started with Power Holding 2.6s on Rossi.
