Sebastien Bourdais crashes at Indy, taken off on backboard

With his attention clearly starting to wain after a hard 2017 so far, the Spaniard has already been making noises about his next move that, if there is no clear improvement with McLaren-Honda, will be to another team or even another class of racing.

He was on his third of the four-lap qualifying run when the auto squirmed out of control entering Turn 2. The final two practices are scheduled for Sunday and Friday.

The vehicle finished the crash on its wheels, and Bourdais was seen trying to lift his helmet visor but made no attempt to get out by himself. I had seen a few races, but didn't know too much about the series. I had my first experience with traffic and these have been good learning days for me.

"There has been a lot of people supporting me". Teammate Ryan Hunter-Reay, the 2014 Indy victor, finished among the five fastest each of the four days he turned laps. It took a little time to get comfortable, but the team did a great job preparing me. "Fernando is the same way".

"I don't want to raise or lower expectations. I'm very impressed with his approach". The four-time CART champion has 36 North American open-wheel wins and has won an IndyCar race in each of the past four seasons.

"Obviously he's very accomplished", Dixon noted.

"We've had this year some good Fridays and Saturdays, but bad Sundays as we haven't finished a race yet".

French IndyCar driver Sebastien Bourdais felt the full force of the Indianapolis walls after a horror head on smash during qualifying for the famous race.

Power was the only Penske driver to make the shootout after the IndyCar Grand Prix victor finished sixth at 230.072.

"We skipped the morning practice", said Dixon.

Asked if he was aware of the speed difference, he replied: "Not really. I feel like our alone speed is actually pretty good compared to what the Hondas were running".

The racers outside the top nine who are not competing for pole will race again on Sunday to try and improve their starting position.

Alonso's coach said that his preparation would "ramp up big time" from the start of today and now practice drivers will be allowed to run qualifying-level turbo boost with an increase from 1.3-bar to 1.4-bar and De Ferran said that the four laps in qualifying will be the most frightful laps for Alonso. He was clocked at over 236 miles per hour, a career best, at one point on the track.

Rossi is aware of that, but he has made it clear that he intends to build on the success he enjoyed in 2016, per ESPN's Ryan McGee: "I had chances to go back to Europe and I didn't". "We trimmed out - which is risky - but if you got that extra step, maybe you're quick for one or two laps but the tires start to wear out and the wind gets stronger, and you're off".
