Tentokrat v lepsim tymu – Panther Racing. A docela se mu dari:
The star from the Czech Republic, who Jan. 18 signed a contract with the two-time IndyCar Series championship team to drive the No. 2 Panther Racing Dallara/Chevrolet/Firestone for the 17-event season, was quickest of the 21 car-driver combinations in the morning session on the 2.21-mile circuit at 111.128 mph (1 minute, 11.5928 seconds). The fast lap was his last of the 3-hour-plus session under a sunny sky and with the temperature in the mid-60s.
