2013 Indy 500: Practice 10 times

Times from the one-hour Carb Day practice session at Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which saw cautious reason for optimism by the hitherto subdued Honda contingent.
Schmidt-Hamilton Motorsport's Simon Pagenaud claimed the top spot in the final hour of practice on 'Carb Day' ahead of Sunday's Indianapolis 500.

His lap of 39.8536s (225.827mph) was 0.0925s faster than EJ Viso who was just ahead of his Andretti Autosport team mate Ryan Hunter-Reay, but for the first time this year at Indianapolis Motor Speedway it was the Honda cars that were in the majority in the top ten in the final timesheets. That gave the Honda teams - so convincingly trounced in qualifying last week - reason for optimism that their newly installed race engines might be capable of taking battle to their Chevrolet rivals in Sunday's race.

"The car is really good in race trim,” said Pagenaud, who will start from 21st position on the 33-car grid for this year's Indy 500. “The car is up there. It's good for HP, and it's good for Honda. I'm really happy for my guys. For them it's great to go into a race with such a positive note.

Ana Beatriz' car suffered damage after running in the back of a slow Carlos Munoz at pit entry and Ryan Briscoe suffered a late engine fire.
