Alex Tagliani topped the timesheets for Sam Schmidt Motorsports after Monday's six-hour Practice 3 session, following the total wash-out of the second practice session on Sunday.

Blue skies and sunshine meant that the Indianapolis 500 entrants could finally get an full, uninterrupted day's practice under their belts on Monday after the frustrating weekend.

Alex Tagliani topped the timesheets with 225.878 mph despite turning only 17 laps during the day, while Scott Dixon demonstrated how strong Ganassi are likely to be this week reaching a speed of 225.124 mph in just ten laps. His team mate Dario Franchitti only ran eight laps and ended up in seventh with a lap of 224.406 mph

It was not a great day for the rest of the British contingent, with four (Pippa Mann, Alex Lloyd, Mike Conway and James Jakes) in the final four positions of the Practice 3 timesheets, and a fifth - Jay Howard from the Sam Schmidt/Rahal Letterman/Lanigan collaboration - was the only driver not to go out on track during the day.
