"It was the first time in my career I've had to save fuel like that, but in the end, happy with the podium", Wickens said.
The Indy 500 may be a couple weeks away, but Indianapolis Motor Speedway was abuzz Saturday for the IndyCar Grand Prix road-course race. Power outran Wickens going into the first turn of the road course, taking the outside line on the right-hander, which gave him the edge in the sweeping lefthand second turn, and gradually pulling away as Dixon overhauled Wickens down the stretch.
"Power did a great job and the strategy was right", owner Roger Penske said. He barely beat Wickens off pit lane on the final stop of the day and then had to contend with light rain that began with 13 laps to go. "I was 100 percent the whole time". I think he works his way to the front of the pack today and possibly pulls off the small upset. Wickens made a bid through the first two turn sequences, but Power repulsed him to run off again. I asked him when to brake going into turn one.
"I leaned it out more, which is a power loss, and then I got the number".
"Once I got past him it was pretty straight forward because we were much faster".

Many drivers were preferring the red striped alternate softer tyre throughout the race while the primary, harder black tyres struggled for pace and were not lasting much longer which meant the battle to finish was supposed to be finely poised.
"They were giving me a number, and I wasn't able to hit it".
Power chased down race leader Robert Wickens, who started second in the No. 6 Lucas Oil Schmidt Peterson Motorsports Honda, and made a daring outside pass heading into Turn 1 on Lap 51 to take first place.
It might be just what Power needed.
"We had a good strategy day - there was a period there on one stint where we were nearly two seconds a lap quicker than everyone else just pounding around on new tyres and we must have made up about 20 seconds on that stint".
"It's very hard to defend if someone behind you is on overtake and you're not, just the rate of speed, especially on long straights like this it's nearly impossible".
