Mixed emotions for Dixon after armed robbery

"There is so much change in Formula One".

Button, a victor in Monaco eight years ago, admitted it was taking time to get used to the extra speed of the 2017 cars following rule changes that have made them faster and more demanding.

After the hectic weekend of qualifying, Veach said he was able to leave the track and catch a movie at his apartment.

"I think you've always got to think points are possible if you can finish the race". "I finally got away from it for a little bit and it felt nice". One of the suspects was taken to Marion County Holding at Eskenazi Hospital while the other went to the local juvenile detention centre.

"It was definitely shocking, disbelief for the most part", he said.

Both drivers worked their way up from the early open-wheel ranks of the sport, in go-karting. He is fourth all-time on the series' career list for wins (40), is tied for second in most series championships (four) and is now one of five drivers to win the Indy pole three times.

When asked what he hoped to get out of the race, he replied: "Enjoy the race, enjoy the moment, live in that moment". I don't think that's particularly Alonso.

He's just starting a couple rows in front of me.

'I'm braking in places I've never braked before at Monaco.

"He's a racer. He could probably even come here for one year and win his share, because he'll absolutely have the opportunity to do that, and then go back to Formula One. If something happens, we just gotta be eyes up and ready for it". Only horses were racing instead of cars. “Its the best race in the world. "That for me is the biggest difficulty", he said.

"It will make you feel really small again", Dixon said.

It's the third pole at Indy for Dixon, the 2008 race victor and a four-time series champion, and he understands the significance of the achievement. They know you are on quick lap.

"One of the things I've seen with Fernando is his attention to detail", three-time Indy 500 victor Dario Franchitti told CNN. "It wasn't a shock to me that he was going to do the 500, because I've known for a while that he's been wanting to do it, I've read articles and comments that he made at the end of previous year when he wanted to do it, and I though he's having a bad time really in Formula One at the moment, this is a good time to do it". Maybe Harvey or Veach could do the same.

If Hildebrand were to come out victorious in this year's running of the "Greatest Spectacle in Racing", the media would have plenty of stories to tell. Some tickets to the race are still available at IMS.com. Michael Andretti needed some assurances before running six cars in this year's Indianapolis 500.

The 37-year-old Briton is back in a grand prix auto - just five races after he stepped down from the sport - as a replacement for Fernando Alonso, who is taking part in the Indianapolis 500.

Alonso, racing on an oval for the first time, averaged more than 230 miles per hour (370 kph) to qualify fifth fastest for a place in the second row in the 33-car field at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
