2013 Indy 500: Practice 8 times
18 May 2013
Chevrolet continued to head the times at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, but in the final short pre-qualifying practice session on Saturday morning it was Penske rather than Andretti Autosport to claim the honours with Will Power setting a new top speed for the week of 229.808mph (39.1631s).
That was 0.1235s faster than his team mate for the weekend AJ Allmendinger, who was showing absolutely no signs of being a 'rookie' on his first-ever Pole Day morning heading into his maiden Indy 500.
And the Honda stable showed that no one should be counting them out just yet either, with Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing's Josef Newgarden, Rahal Letterman Lanigan's Graham Rahal and Schmidt-Hamilton Motorsport's Simon Pagenaud next fstest ahead of the remaining Penske running Helio Castroneves who settled in for a relatively sedate sixth position.
Conditions started off foggy, gloomy and rather humid, and also still a little damp following the storms that had swept over Indianapolis yesterday afternoon and curtailed Fast Friday practice. Drivers with a late qualifying draw decided that they had little to gain from coming out - and everything to lose if they ended up crashing. As a result, not everyone decided it was worth heading out for the two-hour session, the first half of which was split into two groups: only 25 of the 33 drivers took to the track, with Conor Daly in particular grateful of the opportunity to shakedown the rebuilt #41 after its Thursday crash.
Qualifying was due to start at 11am EST but was delayed due to light rain.
