The rain stayed away from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for long enough yesterday to finally let the drivers get back in their cars and put in a few laps on the track.
And that left the teams yet to qualify for the race with a decision to make.
Use the practice session to optimise the car for qualifying, at the risk of not having enough data on race day? Or test a full race set-up, and hope not to suffer for it when the weekend arrives?
For Justin Wilson, it was simple: he’s looking ahead to the race itself. “We’ve been running pretty much in race trim all day, just trying to get the car to handle as best we can in traffic,” he says in this IRL video. “On Saturday we’ll switch back and get ready for the qualifying weekend.”
