Fifth Gear: Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg

The 2022 NTT INDYCAR SERIES season started with authority at the Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg presented by RP Funding on Feb. 27, as sunny skies provided close racing yet again on the streets of St. Petersburg, Florida. Same story goes for Palou last year: he finished 17th at St. Petersburg, the second race of the year. “What won the championship last year was a 7.1 average race result,” he said. “For me it’s just that I want to finish top 10, top eight every race, and if I can do that, I know I’m going to be there. In 2021, his average finish on road courses was 7.2, while his average finish on street courses was 20th. Sato charged hard through the field in his 200th career NTT INDYCAR SERIES race. From there, he ran around or just inside the top 10 for most of the race before finishing 10th.
