Álex Palou: "I think we can fight with the Andretti"

"Here it is good to be in the top 10 or 15, but my team has given me such a good car that we have to get to the Fast Nine," says the Catalan.


It's his first year in the Indycar, but Palou already knows what it's like to get on the podium. The Catalan was third in the Road America race and is on his way to contest the 'Fast Nine' of the Indy 500 on Sunday 16 as a 'rookie'. Palou qualified seventh and would have to be overtaken by three drivers to stay out of the top nine for pole position in the Indianapolis 500.

"It is very important. Today is our goal. Here it is always good to be in the top 10 or 15, especially in my first year, but my team has given me such a good car that we have to get to the Fast Nine", he replies Alex after finishing his attempt in qualifying this Saturday.

The 500 Mile classification consists of five laps, a launch and another four of which the average speed is made. This is how the grid is ordered from 10 to 33. Subsequently, on Sunday the so-called 'Fast Nine' is disputed where the first nine on Saturday compete for pole for the race held on Sunday, August 23. "The feeling was great. It was the first time we completed four fast laps, because yesterday we had traffic and some problems. But we felt great and the car is great. I think we have more speed. I hope to get to the Fast Nine, because I think that we can get more speed out of that car and the team deserves it. I'm looking forward to it, "continues Palou.

In addition, after his good performance, Palou is able to put his car at the level of the Andretti, one of the favorites to victory: "I think we can fight with the Andretti. It is a pity that it is so hot because it has complicated us a bit of the batch. I hope we get to the Fast Nine and that tomorrow is a good day ".
