Infineon Raceway - Sunday warm-up

Will Power easily headed the final half-hour practice session at Infineon Raceway ahead of Sunday afternoon's Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma in California.
Penske's Will Power set the fastest time in the half hour Sunday warm-up session at Infineon Raceway at Sears Point in California, ahead of the afternoon's Indy Grand Prix of Sonoma.

The half hour session was delayed by more than 60 minutes due to heavy fog in the area.

Power was 0.3091s ahead of Ganassi's Scott Dixon, with Ryan Briscoe also providing strong competition in fourth. Britain's James Jakes was an unexpected but welcome sight in fourth place in the time sheets for Dale Coyne Racing.

As expected, Simon Pagenaud will continue in the HVM #78 with Simona de Silvestro's ongoing immigration problems still to be resolved, hopefully in time for next weekend's maiden Balitimore street race.

The race starts at 1.45pm local time, which is 9.45pm BST. In the UK, the race is being shown live on Sky Sports.
