Will powers home for second at Long Beach

Alexander Rossi dominates to clinch victory in Long Beach

Bottas called it a "fair" pass and finished second with Ferrari's Kimi Raikkonen in third. He was penalised for the blunder and finished 12th.

Red Bull's victory leaves the Formula One season in a scramble after just three races. Even when we saw him at Phoenix, on the oval [where Rossi finished third].

Rossi pulled away after a late restart to win the Grand Prix of Long Beach, completing a dominant weekend by holding off Will Power for his third career victory.

"When you look at what Rossi did this weekend... man, really, really, really strong". It's no surprise that this race has been on the calendar for so long. "I will remember this for a long, long time".

Rossi topped the speed charts in Friday's practice then claimed the pole in the 24-car field by posting the fastest time in all three of Saturday's knockout qualifying sessions. Rossi is the fifth driver to win at Long Beach from the pole, but the first since 2007.

"I certainly hope I haven't peaked too early with those three, " Rossi said of his impressive array of conquered tracks.

"This is the most competitive championship I've ever participated in", Alexander added. "When you add in the Scott Dixons and the Will Powers of the world; guys that just - all they know is winning - and then you combine it with drivers who are massively talented like Rob [Wickens] and Jordan King, and these rookies who are making an impression, Zach Veach, who drove from P17 to fourth today..."

Graham Rahal managed to bring home his RLL racing auto home in fifth place despite having to serve a drive-through penalty for contact with Simon Pagenaud on the opening lap of the race, the collision sent the Frenchman hurtling into the wall causing irreparable damage to the Penske vehicle.


Rossi was a contestant on the most recent season of the CBS reality show The Amazing Race alongside fellow driver Conor Daly, who attended the race in Long Beach despite not now having an IndyCar ride.

Rossi completed the race in a time of 1:53.15 with an average speed of 88.622 miles per hour, beating runner up Will Power (#12 Team Verizon Penske) to the checkered flag by a 1.2 second margin.

Power started and finished second in the No. 12 Verizon Team Penske Chevrolet, leading six laps. "He was just really, really good. That's pretty much all we had".

Rossi was a contestant on the most recent season of the CBS reality show "The Amazing Race" alongside fellow driver Conor Daly, who attended the race in Long Beach despite not now having an IndyCar ride.

Power took the lead when Rossi pitted on the 25th lap, but Rossi moved right back in front on the 32nd lap.

Dixon started fourth on the grid and was on the pace for most of the 85-lap street course journey but copped a penalty for driving into a closed pit lane.

The Long Beach street course is popular both for its friendly California atmosphere and the opportunities for remarkable racing created by its dimensions. Other notable, more experienced drivers continued to make errors throughout the race, Sebastian Bourdais made a daring move into Turn 1 passing Scott Dixon, Spencer Pigot and then proceeded to dive up the inside of Mathius Leist. However, race control ordered Bourdais to give back the position because he used part of the pit exit lane to make the pass. Rahal got a drive-through penalty. Hunter-Reay fought his way back up to fifth, but got a puncture on contact with King.

The Indy cars will be back in action next Sunday, April 22, when the series shifts to Barber Motor Sports Park for the Honda GP of Alabama.
