IndyCar Sao Paulo 2013: Warm-up times

Graham Rahal took the honours in the short half hour Sunday morning warm-up in Sao Paulo, the last track time for the drivers ahead of today's Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300.
Rahal Letterman Lanigan finished the quiet 30-minute Sunday morning warm-up session on top of the timesheets, courtesy of Graham Rahal's lap of 1:21.2494s (12.365mph) on the 11-turn 2.536-mile temporary circuit on the streets of Sao Paulo in Brazil.

Rahal was just 0.0426s ahead of EJ Viso, one of the drivers who will line up on the front row for the start of Sunday afternoon's Itaipava Sao Paulo Indy 300, the fourth round of the 2013 IZOD IndyCar Series season. Ganassi's Scott Dixon was third fastest.

Josef Newgarden rebounded from missing out on qualifying while the Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing #67 was fitted with a new Honda engine on Saturday by putting in the fifth fastest time of the warm-up just a tenth adrift of Panther's JR Hildebrand.

While Newgarden needed to shake down his car after its rebuild, most of the field was content to drive well within their capabilities in a relatively relaxed warm-up session. Dixon and Ana Beatriz were among those to have adventures in overrun areas, but there were no major incidents or stoppages.

Today's race starts at 11.30am EST (16.30pm BST).
