2014 Long Beach: IndyCar Practice Results - Pagenaud, Bourdais Fastest


Unofficially, it was French Friday on the streets of Long Beach as Frenchmen Simon Pagenaud and Sebastien Bourdais led the opening day of preparations for the 40th Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.

Pagenaud, of Montmorillon, France, was quickest on the 1.968-mile, 11-turn circuit with a lap of 1 minute, 9.1488 seconds in the 45-minute session. Bourdais, a three-time winner of the race from Le Mans, France, was .0120 of a second back in the No. 11 Mistic KVSH Racing car.

"I think the team's done a great job over the winter at helping the car on the curbs and on the bumps," said Pagenaud, driving the No. 77 Schmidt Peterson Hamilton Motorsports car. "I feel pretty confident this weekend; we've got a pretty good package. Obviously, with different series running there will be different rubber on the track. You have to adapt. As the track rubbers up, the softness of the car needs to go up or needs to go down, and that's what we'll have to adjust for the red Firestone tires that are going to give us more grip. It's quite exciting."

Verizon IndyCar Series rookie Jack Hawksworth was third quick (1:09.4409) in the No. 98 Charter/Castrol Edge entry for BHA/BBM with Curb Agajanian, while 2013 race winner Takuma Sato was fourth (1:09.4524) in the No. 14 ABC Supply car for A.J. Foyt Racing. Will Power, a two-time winner and three-time pole sitter here, was fifth (1:09.4980) in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske car.

Five different teams were represented in the top five, with Honda having a 3-2 edge in the afternoon session. The 23 drivers recorded 765 laps combined.

Drivers also were practicing for the standing start -- the first of the season and the first at Long Beach since 2008 -- for the 80-lap race April 13.
