It is not being a easy come back to Baltimore streets for Indycar Series drivers, it is a very tricky street circuit with 3.28 km and is driven clockwise. Surely for circuit driders it is problematic, very difficult and narrow. High risk of safety car during the race. A slight error in this streets can take you out of the race. The chicanes are still a problem for pilots, too high chicanes are making cars jump and go to the wall or to protections, althought fatigue will be a important point because of posibles mechanical failures.
Frenchman Tristan Vautier has been the fastest driver in the Baltimore Streets, followed by Rahal and Newgarden. Honda teams are showing little faster than Chevrolet in this practice sessions. Justin Wilson in his fight for the chrono has go against the protections in turn 9. Red flag has been shoot during some time.
Anyway, a new race, another fight, for the title race where some riders have been eliminated and, Castroneves, Dixon and Reay remain as the major candidates but Helio Castroneves has increasingly greater advantage with great regularity in leadership because of his results in high positions during races. Castroneves was the only driver to complete every lap of every race of the championship.
Tony Kanaan in this race will break the record of consecutive races in Indycar which was in the hand of the myth Jimmy Vasser
