Grosjean Gratified after Close Call with Long Beach Victory

It was close, but not close enough for Romain Grosjean as missed opportunities on a different tire strategy left him tied with his career-best NTT INDYCAR SERIES finish of second in Sunday’s prestigious Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach. For a while, it looked as though Grosjean might score his first career NTT INDYCAR SERIES win. “You know, we had the right tire strategy,” Grosjean said. Grosjean advanced to third in his Andretti Autosport machine, and his charge for Newgarden in the No. Just three laps later, Grosjean passed defending NTT INDYCAR SERIES champion Palou, but it took him an extra lap to get by as Palou defended his position well against Grosjean. “If the first (pass) had worked I think it was the win. “I think this season is going very well,” Grosjean said of his first year with Andretti Autosport. “This year, I know I have to drive a little bit differently,” Grosjean said.
