St Petersburg - Sunday warm-up

Mike Conway gave some hope back to the shell-shocked Honda teams by going top of the Sunday morning warm-up times ahead of this afternoon's season opener.
Still reeling from being swept aside in qualifying by the Chevrolet-powered teams, the Honda camp can take some solace from the sight of AJ Foyt Racing's Mike Conway topping the Sunday warm-up times in damp conditions.

Conway's best lap of 1:03.2891s (102.387mph) was just 0.0346s ahead of another Honda runner, Takuma Sato in the Rahal Letterman Lanigan car. Justin Wilson made it a trio of Honda cars at the top by putting Dale Coyne Racing into third, with KV Racing Technology's Tony Kanaan the highest-placed Chevy runner in fourth.

Simona de Silvestro put the first of three Lotus cars into the top ten, a lap of 1:03.8157s (101.542mph) just enough to put her in front of Lotus Dragon Racing driver Sebastien Bourdais and Alex Tagliani joining them in tenth place in the Bryan Herta Autosport car.
