Arrow McLaren SP’s Felix Rosenqvist took his first NTT IndyCar Series victory of 2022 on Wednesday albeit in the virtual world as he claimed victory at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in the IndyCar Series Pro Challenge.
Speaking following the race, the Swede who beat Dale Coyne Racing’s David Malukas and Dreyer and Reinbold Racing’s Sage Karam said:
It’s always that vibe between the drivers when we have these (virtual races). “We all say that we don’t take it seriously, but I definitely did. Today I think I spent the last five or six hours in the simulator. You want to do well.
“It was fun. It’s always nice in this part of the season to get a little action going between the same names you’ll be fighting in the real season and take the rust away a little bit from the months of the offseason.”
Pre-season testing gets underway next week before the teams head to Florida for the 2022 NTT IndyCar Series season-opening Firestone Grand Prix of St Petersburg.
