Paddock Buzz: Rahal, Grosjean at Odds after Late-Race Joust

Graham Rahal wasted no time establishing his take on his double late-race contact with Romain Grosjean in Sunday’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama presented by AmFirst at Barber Motorsports Park. “Look, we’re already straight there; why are you turning into me?” Rahal said to the monitor while watching the replay. When it happened, Rahal told his team on their radio that Grosjean “hit me on purpose.”. Grosjean said there was “a lot of wheel banging” in the 90-lap race because “it’s so hard to pass” on this 17-turn, 2.3-mile permanent road course. Grosjean said the two touches of Rahal’s car was an example of that. Rahal said he was disappointed that Grosjean got past him on the last lap as Rahal’s No. Power has finished third, fourth, fourth and fourth in this year’s race to date. “The good thing is, when you don’t qualify well you have good tires for the end of the race, and we had pretty good pace.
