Andretti Autosport continued to control the practice timesheets at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, on the fourth day of a full week of practice ahead of Saturday's Pole Day qualifying for the 97th running of the Indy 500.

Today it was James Hinchcliffe's turn to end up on top with a lap of 224.210mph (40.1410s), a tenth faster than Panther's JR Hildebrand; Marco Andretti, Ryan Hunter-Reay and EJ Viso were also in the top six and the rookie member of the Andretti line-up Carlos Munoz continued to run strongly for the squad in eighth. The strongly team-based nature of the Andretti quintet was emphasised by Hinchcliffe's time actually being set in Marco Andretti's #25 car rather than his own #27 GoDaddy.com car, as the colleagues tested out each others settings to cross-pollinate ideas.

“Marco is pretty angry with me now. Not only did I rock a big tow, which he is famous for, but I did it in his car!" laughed Hinchcliffe afterwards. "It's good to be up there, but at the end of the day, those numbers don't mean a lot right now. It's about the work you do on the race car and making sure the #27 GoDaddy car is going to be good not only on one lap, but over 200."

“We did a couple of long runs with the rest of the Andretti Autosport guys and we are still finding new answers every time we go on a run together," said EJ Viso of the Andretti approach to this week's preparations for the May 26 greatest spectacle in motorsports. "Today was a little bit hotter than the other days, and the weather predictions say that race day is going to be even a bit hotter than today, so I think the running that we did today was pretty productive to gather some data." Viso was among the drivers to have run 2000 miles with his engine so far this season in testing and races, which means he can now swap out the old one and get a new Chevrolet to enhance their remaining practice times.

It was another day free of incident - just three yellows for debris and two brief track inspections during the day - with the track temperatures 20 degrees higher at 130F over yesterday's levels which helped the teams get their race set-ups up to scratch during the six hour session.
