Indy 500: Practice 4 times

Marco Andretti went to the top of the speed charts with a lap topping the 223mph mark, thanks to an outbreak of pack-draft practice with his Andretti Autosport team mates.
Andretti Autosport tried out some team formation flying practice at Indianapolis Motor Speedway on Tuesday, on the fourth day of practice for the 96th running of the Indy 500 on May 27.

Marco Andretti went top with a time of 40.2367s (223.676mph) well ahead of Penske's Helio Castroneves who was the second fastest car of the afternoon ahead of James Hinchcliffe. Ganassi's Graham Rahal was the fastest Honda of the day in fourth place, and in total 14 cars put in laps over 220mph.

HVM Racing's Simona de Silvestro remained the slowest car of the week, despite picking up almost 10mpg on Tuesday over her previous best lap speed.
