Indy Car Season began with the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. Honda started off the season strong at the event, finishing in the top six positions. The winner of the event was Honda driver Sebastien Bourdais, who earned his second consecutive Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg win. Additionally, out of the top 10 spots at the event, Honda took eight of them.

“Four Honda drivers led 105 laps of the 110-lap contest Sunday on the 1.8-mile downtown St. Petersburg circuit, with Wickens dominating at the point for a race-high 69 laps,” according to the Honda News press release. “But a late-race restart on Lap 108 gave the second-running Alexander Rossi an opportunity to mount a challenge for the lead. The pair of Honda drivers made contact in Turn One, with Wickens spinning and making light contact with the outside wall. An opportunistic Bourdais used the opening to jump from third to first, and claimed the victory as the race ended under caution.”

The action-packed event was exciting to watch, and also showed off the remarkable skill that Honda racing vehicles are capable of.
