IndyCar Qualifying: Grosjean takes first pole position in a decade!

The IndyCar Series will race this weekend on the Indianapolis Speedway road course and the pole position has gone to an old friend. Romain Grosjean set the fastest lap on Friday and will start from pole for the first time in ten years.

First pole for Grosjean

Romain Grosjean was forced to leave Formula 1 after his team Haas F1 opted for two rookies for 2021. The Frenchman found a new home in the IndyCar Series in Dale Coyne Racing. The first two races went well, he finished tenth and thirteenth. He skipped the Texas oval races.

After that the IndyCar circus travelled to Indianapolis where it will race in May on the Grand Prix layout of Indianapolis and later in the month on the oval. On Friday, Grosjean managed to get his first ever pole position in the IndyCar. He was very emotional and says it reminds him of the days when he could race for victories.
