I lost the auto coming out of [Turn] 3 to the inside, and I was hoping no one was going to go in the inside so we could get it clear. Unfortunately, just got beat by.007 seconds.

"How much you need to be in the garage, how much focus you need to have in the race and how to get ready to jump in the auto - sometimes when you expect and sometimes when the engineer tells you time to go [was new]". That hasn't been part of our equation.

"We've waited for this moment 365 days and we did it", Fittipaldi said. "Here, we're constantly pushing even though there is traffic, we're always hustling the auto and trying to get it to the end of the stage as quick as possible". Alonso, 36, who drove in his first Indy 500 past year and plans to compete in only this sports-car race, has piqued more interest internationally. He is at Daytona Beach, Florida for this weekend's Rolex 24 - the 24-hour race that kicks off the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. Lamborghini looking for a first at the Rolex 24, their first overall 24 hour- or first class victory in a 24 hour race.

But that was mostly because co-driver Phil Hanson crashed their United Autosports Ligier LMP2 duing the morning's practice session, costing both drivers vital track time at a circuit where neither has raced before.

Having started brightly, even leading during a brief rain spell in hour six, Porsche lost ground during the night when its #911 vehicle crashed into the barriers at the Bus Stop chicane. "The first 20 hours or so of the race is just survival, just keeping them and the auto safe so we can race at the end". "We'll have plenty of time to talk about the (rest)".

When Helio Castroneves thinks of the Indianapolis 500, he ponders the victories that got away.

And Ryan Briscoe and Ford come across the line first in GT Le Mans at the Rolex 24.

"You don't see a basketball team where there's a rule that you have to have an investment banker on each team playing - and not playing in a club-level game, but the Super Bowl", said Ricky Taylor, the 2017 series Prototype champion, who will be Castroneves's teammate this year.

Wozniacki claims maiden slam in Melbourne
Wozniacki was the top seed that year having risen to number one in the world in 2010 and she said the defeat was crushing. But I think I did pretty well with all the things that were going on. "I'm sure, eventually, it will go well for them".

"It still surprises me", he said. "You have to be careful". Many 80-year-olds would have taken a nap. For example, Castroneves, who is 5-foot-8, will have to use a seat insert to compensate for having a taller teammate, Graham Rahal, another top IndyCar driver.

"When I was inside of the vehicle, I knew exactly what I had to do". "It's tough. At least I can drive in his seat with the insert".

Driving the second Michael Shank racing Acura, Come Ledogar had his qualifying effort blunted when front end damage resulted in the hood coming off his vehicle early in the session.

"Such an infectious personality", Atherton said. Hand's topped the podium at Daytona twice, bested his class at the 12 Hours of Sebring twice, and secured a class win at Le Mans in 2016.

Castroneves is still determined to join Foyt, Al Unser Sr. and Rick Mears as the only drivers to win four Indy 500s.

Teachers and staff were also travelling on the bus when a violent mob protesting against Padmaavat threw stones on it. The Congress spokesperson said Haryana had become the "gang rape capital" of India in the last two years.
